Re: Why Pilate? Because of Revelation 12:11

Three is a lot going on in chapter 12 and this passage and this is only a small snippet. Apologies if it does not make sense in its brevity. Attached is the second draft of Revelation in which you can see the sources for much of chapter 11 and 12. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1WdIg_OUupx-yY5zddGb...

Re: How the Story of Jacob was Created

Thanks for the parallel. The story of Joseph was formed the same way that Jacob's story was formed with a few exceptions. The Moses-Joseph parallel was taken from Exodus 1:15 - 2:10. The complete story of Joseph, is also a parallel to Jacob's story except that Jacob's story is structurally a simple ...

Re: The book of Revelation and the Egyptian Book of the Dead.

The way I show in my book, How John Wrote the Book of Revelation: From Concept to Publication , that Revelation was written is the same way that the vast majority of the Hebrew Scriptures were were written as well as much of the Christian Scriptures were written. One example, is how the story of Jac...

How the Story of Jacob was Created

The following represents several snapshots representing phases of the construction of the story of Jacob. We can see that it began with a parallel formation from a small section of Moses' life. From there the story grew many times its size. The result is that we can produce logical drafts of the wri...

Yahwist’s Parallel Formation Techniques

The Yahwist in Genesis-Exodus formed his stories by using a three step process process. Step 1: The creation of a story that has two parts to it, such as the marriage of Moses. Step 2: Through parallel formation create a second story. In this case it is the marriage of Moses and the marriage of Jaco...

Re: John 1:29 versus Book of Revelation

I should have not brought that comparison up. What I was trying to state first is that if you look at how Deuteronomy-Joshua came into Revelation on the third draft (page 9 of the link below). You will see the path that the items From Deuteronomy-Joshua came into Revelation. The Revelation 7:9-17 pa...

A Prior Version of Genesis-Exodus Parallel -- Part 1

Below represents the first part of Genesis and the last part of Exodus must have looked like in an earlier draft. Adam, a Snake, and a Tree (Gen 3:1-24) Moses the Bronze Serpent and Striking the Rock Adam and Eve lived in a garden with everything provided (J) (Gen 3:1-3). The snake was sent to cause...

Re: John 1:29 versus Book of Revelation

to klevis, The problem he ran into was the Passover meal depicted in Rev 7:9-17 and depicting Jesus as the Lamb, because the Lamb is the main course. You need a lot of imagination in order to consider Rev 7:9-17 as the Christian Passover meal. This kind of assumption is part of your effort to Chris...

Re: Yahweh, El Elyon, Margaret Barker, & the epistles.

Margaret Barker spends the last five chapters or so of her book, The Great Angel , arguing that the ancient Israelite belief that Yahweh was one of the sons of El Elyon (= Most High God) survived well into New Testament times and beyond. She argues, among other things, the following about early Chr...

Re: John 1:29 versus Book of Revelation

The Lamb came into the book of Revelation on the third draft of Revelation (see p.9 in the link below). In that draft, John incorporated the last six chapters of Deuteronomy and the first six chapters of Joshua into the prior draft. Every place he used that cited Joshua (Jesus in Hebrew and Greek) h...
