Re: “Did Jesus Exist?” On the New Testament Review

Ian and Laura are friends, but that doesn't mean I agree with them on everything, though we agree on quite a bit. (Ian and I are in pretty solid agreement on source critical issues. And, of course, there are lots of things the two of them disagree on, but their disagreements are not the point of th...

Re: "Matthew" Makes A Whole Ass Out Himself. Matthean Doubling, Editing Or Copying of GMark?

I see your double negative and raise you a triple negative: Mark 5.3b: 3b καὶ οὐδὲ ἁλύσει οὐκέτι οὐδεὶς ἐδύνατο αὐτὸν δῆσαι. / 3b And no one was able to bind him anymore , not even with a chain. JW : Ben, it's generally thought that double negatives of the time were an acceptable idiom but wouldn't...

Re: "Matthew" Makes A Whole Ass Out Himself. Matthean Doubling, Editing Or Copying of GMark?

There is something to bear in mind with arguments based on an author's purported tendency to double things up. Take this doubling, for example: Matthew 20.29-34: 29 As they were leaving Jericho, a large crowd followed Him. 30 And two blind men sitting by the road, hearing that Jesus was passing by,...

Re: Proofs That Jesus Existed

And here's a beautiful passive-aggressive one, those really get into my system every now and then, and I'll allow myself a little lashing-out: Peter: Your opening gambit is wrong. It is definitely settled, and has been from the beginning, that Mark was not first. Matthew was first. The historical e...

JennyAnyDonks JW : This Thread is partially a response to my brother Benjamin's Thread: Matthew 21.1-11, the jenny, and the colt. Regarding Carlson's related apologetic attempt I'm mainly surprised that he is again writing in public after The Secret Mark Debacle. I see Carlson as an Apologist in ge...

A Markan Sandwich 9:14 The Healing of a Boy with a Spirit

I'm A Believer JW : "Mark" is famous for sandwiches (mainly Jewbenos). Typically related narrative is interrupted by a seemingly unrelated anecdote story. The anecdote provides the lesson the author wants to teach and this lesson can then be used to understand the author's intended significance/mea...
