Re: Marcion and Acts (for Andrew Criddle).

Specific verses in Acts might well be Anti-Marcionite.
What specific verses in Acts would be Anti-Marcionite?

Cordially, Bernard

Re: John 1:29 versus Book of Revelation

to klevis, Still a very long way in order to demonstrate Rev 7:9-17 is the Passover meal of the gospels. Rev 7:16-17: They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat. For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lea...

Re: John 1:29 versus Book of Revelation

to klevis, The problem he ran into was the Passover meal depicted in Rev 7:9-17 and depicting Jesus as the Lamb, because the Lamb is the main course. You need a lot of imagination in order to consider Rev 7:9-17 as the Christian Passover meal. This kind of assumption is part of your effort to Christ...

Re: The book of Revelation and the Egyptian Book of the Dead.

to klewis,
I asked questions on what you wrote. So I would expect some answers. I certainly answered most of yours.
And about my arguments for an original all Jewish Revelation, I got almost no comments and/or rebuttals on the points in my favor.

Re: The book of Revelation and the Egyptian Book of the Dead.

I am well aware of Seder Olam Rabbah's text and I cited it on page 91 of my book. I am certain you were aware of him. But did you know when he wrote his text? I wonder. Anyway you took the 420 years from him which does make any sense considering that would put the second temple in service only up t...

Re: The book of Revelation and the Egyptian Book of the Dead.

klewis, Are you avoiding my arguments about the initial Revelation being strictly a Jewish text, with no Jesus in it? I want to point some errors and unevidenced extrapolations of yours in your book.

Re: The Crucifixion is absent in Hebrews

First, the Crucifixion is not absent in Hebrews. Regardless to what Loisy thinks. Second, crucifixions were not bloodless, especially if nails were used. Even with attachments by ropes, movements of the crucified would create bloody lacerations. Cicero, Against Verres 2.4.11: With what face have you...

Re: The Crucifixion is absent in Hebrews

The Crucifixion is absent in Hebrews. Really?
Heb 12:2
Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.

Re: The book of Revelation and the Egyptian Book of the Dead.

to Klewis, I am amazed how you twist and invent things to support your agenda and to deny an original strictly Jewish Revelation. Let's start by Rev 11:8: "...the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified." Frankly, I don't see what that have to do wi...

Re: How John Wrote the Book of Revelation Chapter 1

to Giuseppe, ok, but basing on the your conclusions about how the book was written etc, what do you think about the question of historicity in Revelation, particularly about 11:8 and about 13:8 ? About Rev 11:8: RSV translation (which makes sense): and all who dwell on earth will worship it, every o...
