Re: Justin Martyr, the Gospel of Luke, and Marcion.

"What remains" is thin gruel indeed. Thanks to you all for doing the hard work! For comparison, a control experiment, it is useful to look at the work of Markus Vinzent. Arguing for the priority of Marcion's gospel, multiple attestations of it in Justin would bolster his case for it being 'standard'...

No, not even in the most canine of dog-latin :D

Re: The Muratorian Canon on Acts

Just possibly, 'remote' means 'separately' : the sense would be that the single volume recorded events which 'happened in his presence', while he was also the presumed author of accounts of later events. Just possibly...

Re: Justin Martyr, the Gospel of Luke, and Marcion.

As a supplementary to this diversion, note that Hebrews 2.12 has the (by implication) resurrected 'Jesus' speak through Psalm 22.22 :
'απαγγελώ τό 'όνομά σου τοίς 'αδελφοίς μου,
'εν μέσώ 'εκκλησίας 'υμνήσω σε

(Apologies for the atrocious accenting !)

Re: Was the Vatican Originally Associated with Evil and Magic

If I was a brutalist textual critic who regarded τόν βασικανόν as hopelessly corrupt, I 'could' emend it with τό βασιλικόν, i.e. the imperial treasury (cf. 2 Macc 3.13), which was on the Capitoline hill. But that would be wrong and pointless. Dialectal interchangeability of sigma and tau is a given,...

Re: Is Paul Described as Having a 'Stopover' in Rome?

Stephan, I really don't want to interrupt your broadsides against Stuart, but I'm curious. As to this particular example, a Marcion of the apostolic age, you solved this with your (rather brilliant) reading of Justin 1Apol.26 ('Justin's First Reference to Marcion' - 27 Dec 2019). It explains how Mar...

Re: Is Paul Described as Having a 'Stopover' in Rome?

Stephan, Stephan, I was merely pointing to literary dependency, not making any claims for the historical accuracy of the farrago that is the (C2) Acts of the Apostles. A priori, it should have no more privilege than, say, the Acta Pauli. Indeed, you could argue that a more plausible reconstruction c...

Re: Is Paul Described as Having a 'Stopover' in Rome?

Sorry have to be brief (UK time difference !) Stephan : as per my first paragraph, the situation in the Actus is that at the end of canonical Acts : Paul requires release from prison, he requires divine guidance as to where to go next, he has not been interrupted on a journey to Spain. Andrew : in t...

Re: Is Paul Described as Having a 'Stopover' in Rome?

Demorantis : the natural reading would be 'was delaying' but context determines translation. Whatever (lost) Acts of Paul chapters 1-3 have been spliced from, it depends on the narrative arc of the Acts of the Apostles. Paul is only free to travel because the jailer released him; it is only because ...
