Re: Was the Acts's Paul modeled on Marcion's life, too?

To carry this idea a bit further, if we walk through the parallels we could construct a plausible succession in which Marcion was the final leader. Luke and Acts form a simple parallel in which Jesus replaces John the Baptist early on just as Paul replaces Peter early on. The journey of Jesus in Luk...

Re: Yahwist’s Parallel Formation Techniques

BibleWorks may have it origins in conservative Christianity just as Logos. The difference between the two was that BibleWorks separated scholarship from theology and decided early on that the tool was meant for Hebrew and Greek studies. They provided a large set of works as part of the base package ...

Re: The Canon

Didache, Ignatius, Polycarp, Shepherd of Hermas, gThomas...Are you supposing that there might not have been any Christian texts published, bought, and sold in the 2nd century? *** I'm not sure what you're suggesting and/or asking. Could you put it more directly? Of course. I do not doubt that there...

Re: Yahwist’s Parallel Formation Techniques

Semiopen, thanks for a lot of the info. I was more interested in the Hebrew poetry in connecting the passages. I also treated Genesis-Exodus the same way I would treat Luke-Acts in that they were written at the same time, or in the case of Genesis-Exodus, they were compiled as a complete story. The ...

Re: Yahwist’s Parallel Formation Techniques

There is a real issue in overlaying contemporary norms and values on the Tanakh template. For example, we have difficulty accepting a scenario where Joseph is presented as gay. The question whether he "should" have taken the opportunity to have intercourse with Potiphar's wife is far from clear fro...

Re: Yahwist’s Parallel Formation Techniques

Semiopen, thanks for the 2 Samuel reference. I learned a new connection. What I had was that the story of Tamar is a story that takes elements from the story of Joseph sold into slavery and the story of Joseph with Potiphar's wife. The story of Tamar was inserted as a parallel to the story of Judges...

Re: Yahwist’s Parallel Formation Techniques

Personally, I like to search for identical phrases such as: Keep in mind the process in which Hebrew poetry is formed. If you look for repeating phrases alone then you will never find many of the known parallels. Examples of simple and inverted parallels are presented below, first with text in pros...

Re: Yahwist’s Parallel Formation Techniques

The same process that created the story of Jacob that launched this topic can also be seen in the story of Joseph. There is and always will be debate as to the origin of the story found somewhere. My studies are limited to how the texts, once they were written morphed to where they are now. The stor...

How Revelation 11 Was Created

I thought, that I would give my explanation of how John wrote chapter 11 on Revelation. Remember this is only a theory that is based upon the idea that the author composed Revelation using Hebrew Poetry (HP), with a twist. Instead of using Hebrew Poetry (HP) within the book of Revelation itself, he ...
