Re: The mystery of the mark of the Beast, 666/616, is solved and it proves I am right about Hadrian

Klewis, a major flaw in your analysis, at least in my eyes, is that you reject any real world need for Revelation and that it is only comparative to inner textual sources and not external historical events. Why, under your hypothesis, which I'm not disagreeing with, was Revelation necessary? What w...

Perhaps the number 666 means the sixth seal, the sixth trumpet, and the sixth bowl and the author of Revelation didn't even think in the meaning of a number identifying the person. The source material for the beast is from Daniel chapter 7 in which John split it up in chapters 13, 17, and 19. Each t...

Re: A solution to the Light and the Sun discrepancy in the Genesis story

The first creation account is Hebrew Poetry in that the left column describes the start of the process and the right column describes the completion of the process. The beginning and end of the process represents the same state. God did nothing before creation Day 1 -- God created light Day 4 -- God...

Re: Transfiguration == original crucifixion in the Earliest Gospel

Nasruddin, you have not proved that Jesus has a personality in John. Are you able to describe your point without too much quotes? It seems that you are unable even to do so. I am sure that even your stupid apologist here doesn't realize your point because you have not explained it well. Your Statem...

Re: Transfiguration == original crucifixion in the Earliest Gospel

Perhaps Giuseppe needs to articulate:
  • What words or phrases that should be ascribe to Jesus that would constitute as human emotions?
  • What words ascribe to human emotions that are falsely attributed to human only?
I do know that his response will be in the form of an ad hominem attack.

Re: How is it that the Didache is listed as older Matthew's Gospel if it talks about The Lord's Prayer from The Gospel?

Dating these works are in the eyes of the beholder. For example, the first reference is from 'Q' and the second one could be. I don't have my references in front of me to say as much. Also, even if we cannot triangulate the text from Q because there is not a Lukan source, Matthew could have derived ...

Re: The Paraclite is Marcion

If the birth of the Son is in heaven, then the mother can't be the earthly mother named Mary of later Gospels, sorry. Is this a case where you read Revelation with the Gospel-coloured glasses? I fear that is the case. Perhaps the imagery comes from somewhere outside of the Gospels? Such as a confla...

Re: Bob Price makes the same my point about Mark 8:27-30!!!

Dr Price has lots of insights into the construction of the Gospels. He would be happy to see that you found the same stuff he did and you took it in a different direction. true, but strangely he didn't answer to a my mail (and I don't like facebook). My problem with Bob Price is that he seems to be...
