Re: Jesus son of Saphat in Josephus and the Jesus of the gospels: one and the same person

The core of my theory on the origins of Christianity is that Jesus was active during the war of the Jews against the Romans, 40 years later than what the gospels are telling. The crucial event which transformed the messianist Jesus into the awaited messiah was his survival of his crucifixion in the...

Re: Lena Einhorn's ideas

But the question is the strength of the parallels, the uniqueness of the parallels, the strength of the differences, and the pattern of the combined parallels.

Re: Works of Irenaeus of Lyon and Origins translated into Latin are reliable?

I would like to know of the work of Irenaeus of Lyons and origins if they are reliable because they only survived in Latin because these two works bring the prayer of the Lord on the cross in Luke 23,34 I would like to know if I can trust at least the citation that these works "Against Heresies" at...

Re: Evidence for a Resurrectionless Christianity Developed from the Short Ending of Mark

The gospel of Mark originally ended with an empty tomb and no resurrection of the crucified one....... The author of the fable in short gMark does clearly state that the crucified Jesus resurrected at precisely Mark 16.6. http://www.codexsinaiticus.org/en/manuscript.aspx?book=34&chapter=16&lid=en&s...

Re: Comparing gMark with 'other' history writings of the time?

I've argued that gMark was intended to be understood as an account of historical events. And as such, it is legitimate to compare gMark to other known history works of the time. What I'm most interested in is the 'narrator' of such other works. Because one thing that characterizes gMark is the anon...

Re: How could Paul afford his extensive travels?

If, however, "Paul" was a character built around some historical figure, say, Mucianus, Procurator of Syria then we might be able to see if there was a source of money from somewhere "outside" the Story LIne: https://www.ourcivilisation.com/smartboard/shop/tacitusc/histries/chap8.htm : "So the east...

Re: How could Paul afford his extensive travels?

Now, just for the sake of heuristic investigation, let's assume that Acts was correct, and Paul was a "tentmaker." Basically, he fabricated products from canvas, so besides "tents" this probably included canvas awnings, privacy screens, and maybe even sails for ships. Keep in mind that he was a con...
