Re: The Legion of Jesuses in Josephus

Thanks for qualifying your list to the forum with: 'It was simply meant to be read at face value.' Why then, have you not qualified your actual list? Where has Josephus archived a Jesus, surnamed brother of James? And also the corollary, where has Josephus identified a James, surnamed brother of Je...

Re: The Legion of Jesuses in Josephus

Historiographical Approach: Neither Jesus brother of James or James brother of Jesus were archived by Josephus specifically in those terms of identification, in relation to 1. Jesus brother of James. Your inverse of Jesus brother of James being James brother of Jesus, was purposely not written by J...

Re: The Legion of Jesuses in Josephus

Where is the 'Jesus brother of James' personage text of 1. Jesus brother of James in the works of Josephus? It's just the inverse of "the brother of Jesus called Christ, whose name was James" from Anitquities (20.9.1). Of course, it would be mistaken for anyone to assume that this Jesus was actuall...

Re: Identities Verification.

Predisposition Corollary With the many unclear identities set forth in the New Testament, it becomes clear that there was a predisposition of Christians to disseminate the early Christian accounts and Gospel according to the safety concerns of that age. Commerce and travel within the Roman Empire m...

Re: What did Paul mean by brother(s) of the Lord?

Galatians 1:19 (Paul's meetings with Cephas and James) is seen, along with the received mention of James in Antiquities , as a slam-dunk by some historicists. If Paul met Jesus' brother, and then years later Josephus crossed paths with him, then James' brother Jesus was a historical person. Gal. 1:...

Re: Identities Verification.

Coexisting Gospel Editions Corollary. Expecting to be harried by opposing religious, governmental and commercial hierarchies, the Gospel was written circumspectly in relation to certain identities being known in certitude to the general public, to avoid christian initiates being charged with bringi...

Re: Identities Verification.

Judas/Joses and Justus/Joseph Corollaries. When Joseph/Justus son of Joseph the Carpenter, is misidentified as Joses/Judas son of Alphaeus and vice versa in gospels of The Bible, how can denominations of the dissolvable church assert that copyists and transcribers for The Bible were inspired by the...
