Re: No Christology in the Q community

to robert j, Yes, you need Acts. I never said I did not need Acts for my reconstruction of Paul's travels with places visited, time markers, durations and some events. I don’t think Acts is complete trash. I think Acts provides a very good source of early second-century church traditions and legends...

Re: No Christology in the Q community

to robert j, You are entitled to your opinions about that "possibility" ("possibility" only because not considering all the data available). As for me, I rather follow the evidence even if it comes from flawed writings, such as Acts (that is after a critical and careful analysis). I think the constr...

Re: No Christology in the Q community

to robert j, Prosecutors are typically very skeptical about stories and testimonies in which information is left vague, where equivocations are rife, and where any witnesses other than the suspect's own partners are about as good as useless --- Paul wanted his converts in Galatia to know that the pi...

Re: No Christology in the Q community

This thread has been exploding in many directions. However since I am feeling rather secure about Jesus being crucified in 28, according to my research (as explained in http://historical-jesus.info/appa.html & http://historical-jesus.info/appb.html and I consider Acts as not complete trash (why shou...

Re: No Christology in the Q community

to Michael BG, It is much more likely that Luke has put these verses on Jesus’ lips for religious reasons and to justify the claim that Jesus’ ministry was only a year long. Absolutely. That's what I always thought, Isaiah & all. Indeed all gospel writers are lairs. This is why everything has to be ...

See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Galatia Asia Minor means a large area covering a lot of today Asian Tur...
