Re: Deconstructed Letters of Paulos

Do you think 1 Cor 9 came later? Don't really know. All I can say for sure is that it seems out of place with the surrounding material to me. Purely subjective I know, but there it is. Is there any indication that 2 Corinthians 2:14-6:13 and 7:2-4 was inserted between 2 Corinthians 1:1-2:13 and 7:5...

12: 1 Thessalonians 1:1-2:12 and 4:3-5:28.

Do you have a view about which might have come first, if one might have?

Re: The Legion of Jesuses in Josephus

That is an interesting commentary. These are also an interesting coincidences Thanks, though I probably overstated any oddity regarding the number of Jesuses mentioned by Josephus. Still, the strange parallels between two or three of the individuals mentioned by Josephus (Jesus son of Anianas, Jesu...

Re: The Legion of Jesuses in Josephus

Where is the 'Jesus brother of James' personage text of 1. Jesus brother of James in the works of Josephus? It's just the inverse of "the brother of Jesus called Christ, whose name was James" from Anitquities (20.9.1). Of course, it would be mistaken for anyone to assume that this Jesus was actuall...

Re: The Legion of Jesuses in Josephus

Most significantly, there is another Jesus in the retelling of the stoning of James, the brother of Jesus "called Christ". The story goes on to say that King Agrippa replaces Ananias (the high priest responsible for James' stoning) with a priest named Jesus son of Damneus. Others have noted this, a...

Re: The Legion of Jesuses in Josephus

... the Jesus son of Shapat (leader of a band of "robbers" in Tiberias) may be same as Jesus son of Sapphias (governor of Tiberias). FWIW, a full list of Jesuses in Josephus would include: War (18) 2:566 Jesus, son of Sapphias – Governor of Tiberias. 2:599 Jesus, son of Sapphias – Governor of Tiber...
