Re: Was the birth story in Luke/Matthew originally referred to John the Baptist

I see, you truly worship Richard Carrier. Anyone thing stated outside of what he believes must be wrong and therefore stupid. Wow, talk about free thinking thrown outside the window.

Re: Was the birth story in Luke/Matthew originally referred to John the Baptist

Did I say that the baptism of Jesus by John was a problem? If so, I missed it. this your answer is evidence of real ignorance, without offence, but really really true ignorance. The entire consensus is already with me in recognizing the fact that the baptism of Jesus by John was a problem, for "Mar...

Re: Was the birth story in Luke/Matthew originally referred to John the Baptist

My Argument from Silence against John the Baptist in Paul is a Strong Argument from Silence if we agree with the premise: The ambivalence of Christians (Mark, Luke, etc) with John is more expected if the earliest approach of Christians with John was an approach of strong hostility. The problem with...

Re: One of the two witnesses of Revelation was called Jesus/Joshua

Chapters 11 & 12 are complicated because John is overlaying many sections of Hebrew scriptures with different purposes as well as different time frames. Here is where we will agree. It is in the Gospel of John that we get the idea that Jesus' ministry lasted at least 3 years. The two prophets, are k...

Re: Was the birth story in Luke/Matthew originally referred to John the Baptist

So the steps are the following: 1) Paul and the Pillars: Christ crucified in outer space. Worship of YHWH. Zero knowledge of a John the Baptist. Now the problem is to detect evidence of the real origin of "John the Baptist", between (2) and (3). For what I see, the foundation of your argument is th...

Re: One of the two witnesses of Revelation was called Jesus/Joshua

What does any of this mean to me? Why should I take your interpretation into consideration? Who are you? Because you wrote a book suddenly makes you the expert on it? I'm not interested in textual mutation in Revelation , or if the author(s) just copied whole clothe from other sources. My interest ...

Re: One of the two witnesses of Revelation was called Jesus/Joshua

Revelation 11 is about the Kitos revolt. The two witnesses were Julian and Pappus, who were killed in Lod. Their kyrios was Lukuas-Andreas, who was crucified, in all probability, there as well. This is one of thousands of interpretations. It makes the assumption that chapter 11 is talking about a s...

Re: One of the two witnesses of Revelation was called Jesus/Joshua

The author of Revelation depicted the destruction of Jerusalem, as depicted in Revelation, akin to the destruction of Jericho by Joshua. The seven seals, represent the seven days walking around Jericho (see See DJ7). The seven trumpets represent the seven marches around Jericho on the seventh day (s...

Servicing the Tabernacle / Temple a Theological Overlay to the Book of Revelation

The book of Revelation is complex, written with thought by someone who needs to learn how to write. One of the many overlaying themes in Revelation is the servicing of the temple in heaven, and on earth. http://geneticliteraryreconstruction.info/Content/images/ServicingTheTabernacle.png http://genet...
