Not what I want. Lady Godiva in Jerusalem. Nudus nudum.
Gotta admit, that's what I want too.

Re: Jesus Naked in the Gospel

I mean, it's always good to get the perspective from those who were closest to ground zero, as it is, but why shouldn't we come up with our own perspectives? Why are the church fathers anymore authoritative than medieval scholastics or modern Biblical scholars? When is the terminus ad quem that sepa...

Re: Evidence that Irenaeus knows the meaning of Barabbas ("Son of Father")

What is this? Nothing. Pilate goes out to the forum, and the the writer narrates his going back into the chamber. In no way is that some smoking gun of a later insertion. Gesù titty cazzo di Cristo! I even said that there were Gospels that didn't include the Barabbas episode, namely those of Peter a...

Re: Jesus Naked in the Gospel

So you specifically want a source from the church fathers, and not mere hermeneutics?

Re: Jesus Naked in the Gospel

Justin comparing Jesus to Hercules as an athlete might confer that Jesus was seen as a naked god.

Re: Jesus Naked in the Gospel

Then Simon Peter came, following him, and went into the tomb. He saw the linen cloths lying there, and the face cloth, which had been on Jesus' head, not lying with the linen cloths but folded up in a place by itself. So the resurrected Jesus is definitely unclothed. Also, a person would be strippe...

Re: Jesus Naked in the Gospel

Actually, now that you mention it, wouldn't Lazarus be naked once he was raised? The man who had died came out, his hands and feet bound with linen strips, and his face wrapped with a cloth. Jesus said to them, “Unbind him, and let him go.” Jesus demands they remove the tachrichim coverings from Laz...

Re: Turmel's proof that Barabbas is absent in proto-John

Note that the original fear of Pilate was not the fact that the Jews had chosen the criminal Barabbas (so winning Pilate on his same field of game), but the fact that the Jews answered him so: “We have a Law , and according to that Law he must die, because he claimed to be the Son of God.” When Pil...

Barabbas, the liberated Christ

Going off of Epistle of Barnabas , cs. 120-145 ad, we have the earliest witness to how the Barabbas episode in the Gospels was interpreted: Understand, then, you children of gladness, that the good Lord has foreshown all things to us, that we might know to whom we ought for everything to render than...

Ho finito con te. Ti dedico alla distruzione. Quando muori non piangerò, ma farò il tifo. "Giuseppe è morto!"
