Re: Pilate as a later addition in Mark

Since the goal of the first gospel was, according to Magne, to judaize [ a ] Gnostic deity by euhemerizing [anthropomorphising] him as a Davidic Messiah. Hence, Pilate was basically introduced to claim that Jesus was the Jewish Messia and not the alien gnostic deity ... my point is that I think tha...

Levenson, Death and Resurrection of the Beloved Son : https://vridar.org/series-index/death-and-resurrection-of-the-beloved-son-levenson/ Did you mean to include a noun after sacrific...

Re: An order of lifelong Nazirites?

The Catholic Encyclopedia has "Her Nazarites were whiter than snow" for Adv Marc . IV,4. This is a quotation of Lamentations 4.7. Yes (and Lamentations 4 is otherwise so dark).

Re: Mark knew the Sheperd of Hermas therefore...

The wikipedia page for Shepherd of Hermas has some interesting statements, such as pointing out "In the 2nd century, adoptionism (the view that Jesus Christ was at least initially, only a mortal man) was one of two competing doctrines about Jesus' true nature, the other being that he pre-existed as ...
