Re: Rules of Historical Reasoning

For posterity R. G. Price • 31 minutes ago Since my other post got deleted, I'll provide a simpler summary of the point: The problem with the history of Christian origins is that the field is dominated by theologians. Virtually everyone in the field has a degree in divinity or theology, not history,...

Re: The Skeptical Critical Commentary - Gospel of Mark

1:1, 'The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, Son of God,' is the incipit, reflecting Gen 1:1 and Rom 1:1. Mk 1:2-4 is a Prologue - A 1:2 As it is written in Isaiah the prophet, [Isa 40:3] . BA “Look, I send my messenger ahead of you, [Malachi 3:1; adopting Mal 3:22–24, Mal 4:5, & Exodus 23:20]...

Re: Romans 1:1-5

ok, aside from a few words that have incidentally crept in, do people think Rom 1:1-5 is more declarative of a resurrected spirit than a resurrected man? When I was a Christian, Roms. 1:4 was one of my favourite Pauline verses. τοῦ ὁρισθέντος υἱοῦ θεοῦ ἐν δυνάμει κατὰ πνεῦμα ἁγιωσύνης ἐξ ἀναστάσεως...

Re: Romans 1:1-5

I do not know where the NRSV found "the gospel" in Ro 1:3. These words are not in the Greek text. Good point Bernard: I got it from https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Romans+1&version=NRSV The usually close to the Greek translation of the YLT reads: 1:1 Paul, a servant of Jesus Christ, a ...
