Re: Deconstructed Letters of Paulos

Thanks Ben, I never would have found this material by chance. Looks like I have some reading to do. :) No problem. Just as an addendum, what I feel are my most important contributions to that thread by spin about 1 Corinthians 15.3-11 are to be found in these posts: http://earlywritings.com/forum/v...

Re: No mention of Pilate in Festus's discourse of Acts 25 (and why this silence is surprising)

But I also find the statement placed in Festus' mouth to be strange. The synoptic Gospels portray Jesus as a sagely fellow who was unjustly killed as a rebel by the Romans, but what Romans seemed to fix onto was the fact that he was crucified as a rebel. So for Festus to call Jesus a mere dead man ...

Re: Deconstructed Letters of Paulos

1Co11:23 - 28 I also feel is possibly a interpolation, and 14:34 - 35 is without doubt one also (not so sure about 14:33 though) . Anyone desiring manuscript support for this one has to be content with verses 34-35 only; those are the ones which have been transposed in some manuscripts: 1 Corinthia...

Re: Deconstructed Letters of Paulos

Update: A * denotes where I and Bernard Miller (mostly) agree. 1: Galatians. 2: 1 Corinthians 1:1-4:21 * 3: 1 Corinthians 5:1-6:11 4: 1 Corinthians 6:12-16:24. With 11:23-28 as a possible interpolation and 14:34-35 as a very probable interpolation. 5: 2 Corinthians 1:1-2:13 and 7:5-16. 6: 2 Corinthi...

Re: Deconstructed Letters of Paulos

From http://historical-jesus.info/appp.html >> The Corinthians letters "... the letters we call 1 and 2 Corinthians formed part of a larger collection that originally consisted of several letters... We are left with the impression that the extant letters reflect an editing and combining of writings...

We recently had an extended debate about both the integrity and the authenticity of Romans 15 (and to a lesser extent 16).
Excellent Irish, thank you for bringing that up. It's a very interesting conversation.

Re: Deconstructed Letters of Paulos

Update: David Trobish argues for 1 Corinthians to be three smaller letters* Therefore my list now reads: 1: 1 Corinthians 1:1-4:21 2: 1 Corinthians 5:1-6:11 3: 1 Corinthians 6:12-16:24 4: 2 Corinthians 1:1-2:13 and 7:5-16. 5: 2 Corinthians 2:14-6:13 and 7:2-4. With 2 Corinthians 6:14-7:1 as a possi...

Re: Why “Paulus”?

His nickname perhaps? "Shorty"?
