Re: Clement Dated Luke to the Middle of the Second Century

These names show up in the secondary "so and so send greetings/salutations" which are almost certainly not part of the original letters. Apelles (Romans 16:10) for one shows up. Phlegon is also a name that is dropped in the list in chapter sixteen. The same Phlegon, I presume, who was the freedman ...

My post is appropriate for the Jewish forum. It's none of your business where I post what. Let me make this blatantly clear for you: YOU ARE IN NO POSITION TO TELL ME WHERE MY POSTS BELONG. UNLESS YOU ARE A MOD OR THE SITE ADMIN, YOUR WORD MEANS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING REGARDING SUCH ISSUES . Now, unles...

Re: Clement Dated Luke to the Middle of the Second Century

That Aristo(n) is the same figure as Luke is my own opinion. It best explains why there is a stronger tradition for Luke penning the Dialogue of Jason and Papiscus , and a weaker tradition for Aristo of Pella being its author; and how Marcion could have a disciple named Lucan, and Aristo being the s...

The Hebrew word Image (צלמ) means "off a tree" (צאלים ), figuratively, the shadow cast by a large tree.
Could this relate to Paul saying that Christ is the visible image of God?

Re: Adam's tree

You've made enough posts on here to know that the denizens of the Christian forum can answer these questions at least as well as anyone here. I don't understand the reason behind your attitude. I posted this on the Jewish forum--maybe this crossed your mind?--because I wanted predominantly Jewish s...

Re: Adam's tree

My question was about Jewish traditions in which Adam was turned into a tree. The Naassenes--as per Hippolytus--syncretized Attis into an Adamic figure; and Attis did become a tree (Hippolytus also says that they believed the earthly Adam sprung up spontaneously from the earth and was immovable unti...
