Re: Is it Fair to Say that Joseph of Arimathea Was Introduced to Prove the Empty Tomb Was Miraculous?

When Paul styles Christ in the image of the invisible God in Colossians 1.15 he is likely speaking of the incarnate Christ. Interestingly, Origin quoted Colossians 1.15 as “invisible image of the Invisible God” (in First Principles , 1.2.6). Some Gnostics of the second century are said to have contr...

Re: Jesephus (sic) - hints of a messiah/Christ in the writings attribute to Josephus

Thucydides did it. Julius Caesar did it. Herodotus at least started out his history with it. And so ...

Re: Judas Iscariot

... This is about the CONSTRUCTION of the NT. Josephus wrote ("If there was a Josephus, if he wrote...") what appears to be the Only Authorized History of the events of the NT in Judea and Rome, for instance. Only, there are problems. As I have stated there are Holes, elliptical and opaque phrases....
