Re: 1 Clement & the Gospel of Matthew?

If you want a concrete example consider 'hell' where does Paul ever mention it as a concept, or name it by any names Sheol, Gehenna, outer darkness, tartaros… Romans 10.7 mentions the abyss as the abode of the dead. Is Romans 9-11 actually Paul though? May not be, which is why I said "Romans 10.7" ...

Re: Paul as Combatant in 1st Century BCE

Actually it occurs to me that a reference to Actium might possibly be in the other smaller letters that make up 2 Corinthians as well. 7: 2 Corinthians 1:1-2:13 and 7:5-16. 8: 2 Corinthians 2:14-7:4. Without 6:14-7:1 9: 2 Corinthians 8:1-24. 10: 2 Corinthians 9:1-15. 11: 2 Corinthians 10-13. From ht...

Re: Paul as Combatant in 1st Century BCE

I'm Back! :) While Paul being part of Pompey's forces in Illyricum seems problematic as reported in the posts above http://earlywritings.com/forum/posting.php?mode=quote&f=3&p=101690 a second opportunity presents itself. From 35-33 BCE Octavian went to war with Illyricum. If indeed 2 Corinthians 1:8...

Re: Why 1 Timothy 6:13 was moved to mention Pilate

Just wonder what your thoughts are on this. Re: 1 Clement, I still think the ideas in "A Study in 1 Clement" are sound. The Christian text might have been written in the 90s, or possibly later. The editor may have combined it with a Jewish text in the mid second century. OK. Cool. But let's not der...

Re: 1 Clement & the Gospel of Matthew?

I have limited time so perhaps I've missed it, but I have a question. Does the interpolation idea create more problems than the non-interpolation idea? Why would someone interpolate that passage into a work that otherwise post-dates Paul and refers to the Corinthian church as "ancient"? That I woul...

Re: 1 Clement & the Gospel of Matthew?

Hm. I'm not buying Herron's argument that what was good for Josephus and the Mishnah regarding the use of the present tense is not good for 1 Clement, at least regarding "One simply cannot say that of 1 Clement: we do not know that 1 Clement knows the Temple is in ruins!" Alright, we don't "know" t...

Re: Why 1 Timothy 6:13 was moved to mention Pilate

Hey Peter, OT but if you have a moment could you respond to this post? http://earlywritings.com/forum/posting.php?mode=quote&f=3&p=101775 What's the question? I feel as though the thread has already excavated my past thoughts better than I remember them myself. :D Just this snip from an article [P....
