Re: Evidence that Irenaeus knows the meaning of Barabbas ("Son of Father")

FACT 1: who escapes the Archons is the Son of Father Jesus doesn't escape the archons in the Marcionite/Gnostic theologies. He is killed by them. FACT 2: who escapes Pilate is the Son of Father Even in Marcion's Gospel, Pilate delivers Jesus to death. Paul even says that he was delivered up to the ...

Re: Babylon

It's looking like 75,000 is the number that many people like, but given such a wide range I'm inclined to keep Faust's comment (and Lipschits' research) in mind and think of it as being c. 100,000. Everyone is entitled to their opinion and I've already noted that yours is worthless. Your Lipschitz ...

Re: Mycenaean Hebrew

Ἑρμαῖον חרמון : called after Hermes, of or from Hermes I don't doubt that the borrowing may have been from Greek to Hebrew, but the word Ἑρμῆς (Hermes) has been suggested to be of Pre-Greek origin by Robert S. P. Beekes, which I suspect may be Canaanite/Phoenician, possibly even the word for Pyrami...

Re: Why Pilate? Because of: “PâLaT bar-Abbas” : “Free Barabbas!”

He writes as a scholar, therefore he is a scholar. You write as a scholar but you are not a scholar. Anyone can open up a Semitic language dictionary and make silly arguments from it. Only trust someone who has studied the language. In Italian for instance is there a relationship between figa and f...

Re: Mycenaean Hebrew

I for one think you are an absolute genius, and that one day your work will be appreciated for its ingenuity. I keep trying to find time to send you some of my findings on both the matter of Pre-Greek substrate (which I suspect to be of Semitic origin) and on correlations between Greek mythology and...

Re: Book of Esther

Hey Ethan, I thought you'd enjoy this research: Arguments for Ahasuerus being Darius: Esther 1:14 mentions "the seven princes of Persia and Media." Darius began the custom of having seven counselors. Mark against 1-3. Esther 1:14. Notice the order of "Persia and Media" (cf. 1:3,18,19). Before Cyrus ...

Re: Zeus is the Jewish God.

What am I supposed to be ignorant of? I call it like I see it, and it's easy to show that Greek is much closer to English or Russian or Spanish or Hindi (for instance) than Hebrew. Count from one to ten, for instance. The issue at hand isn't whether or not Greek and Hebrew are a distinct language f...

Re: Zeus is the Jewish God.

I have been reluctant to comment on Ethan's junky pseudolinguistics, but I must note that Zeus's name is Indo-European, not Semitic Germanic: *Tiwaz > Old English Tiu, Old Norse Tyr Latin: Jup(p)iter < Jovis Pater ("Father Jove") Greek: Zeus Pater ("Father Zeus") Sanskrit: Dyaus Pitar ("Father Dyau...
