Re: 1 Thess 2:14-15 : "the Jews who killed the Lord Jesus"

BeDuhn says that Marcion omitted Jesus following the Lord, but the version I read 1 has Jesus there. What's going on? BeDuhn is claiming that Tertullian reads: "Who both killed the Lord and their own prophets", but the text has "Who both killed the Lord Jesus and their own prophets". 1 Which versio...

Re: Who wrote the Pauline Letters? Who was Paul?

Yet there is not any indication there was to- and from- dialogue between these 'churches' or members of their congregations and Paul For I have been informed concerning you, my brothers, by Chloe’s people, that there are quarrels among you.

Re: Mark and the Roman Empire, Adam Winn

... the "Judaizing" mentioned outside of this Set of Ideas has little or no relation to what Zakkai offered. I agree. I doubt Zakkai and subsequent generations of Sages and Tannaim would have directly engaged with emerging Christianity at all. Which leads me to believe that the "Judaizing" argument...

Re: Who wrote the Pauline Letters? Who was Paul?

The relatively new sub-field of NT study, Empire Studies, which involves study of the way in which New Testament texts engage and respond to the imperial world in which they were written, might be pertinent to the production of the Pauline letters. eg. these chapters in the 2016 multi-author book, A...

Re: Who wrote the Pauline Letters? Who was Paul?

Most of the so-called Pauline Epistles to Churches are not really personal letters. They are addressed to the Churches and supposed to be publicly read to the congregants. Yet there is not any indication there was to- and from- dialogue between these 'churches' or members of their congregations and...

Re: Mark and the Roman Empire, Adam Winn

... but where did 'Judasiers' come from? i don't believe they were anything to do with any genuine apostles. Either they are a creation of the 2nd century to give a pious backstory to Jesus and Paul's conflict with them represents 2nd century battles - or they were an offshoot like Paul himself in ...

Re: Who wrote the Pauline Letters? Who was Paul?

The first type of collection theory to consider may be called the “Pauline Testament” approach. Here there is virtually no interval at all between the apostle and the collection of his writings; as these scholars posit it, Paul himself collected them. The earliest exponent of this theory appears to...

Re: Who wrote the Pauline Letters? Who was Paul?

. 3. The Evolution of the Pauline Canon Introduction When considering the letters ascribed to the Apostle Paul, we are accustomed to speaking of justification. When we seek to tunnel beneath the theological ground we stand on, to deconstruct the notion of Pauline theological authority (that is, to ...
