Re: No Christology in the Q community

To robert j Based on Paul’s letters, it’s not clear exactly where his Galatian converts were located. Galatians means Celts. They settled in the northern part of the Roman province of Galatia. As for the southern parts, Acts (13-14) called their people being from Pisidia and Lycaonia and Pamphylia. ...

Re: No Christology in the Q community

to Michael BG, I always though Mark implies that Jesus’ ministry is one year and Luke just takes it over and adds a fictional year for it to happen in. The reason is because Luke’s wants his readers to think he is writing a history which has dates from known history. "Mark" might have implied one ye...

Re: No Christology in the Q community

Hello, Peter Kirby,
I think this whole exchange about the travels of Paul should be relocated in a different thread.

Cordially, Bernard

Re: No Christology in the Q community

to Michael BG, If Luke didn’t know the historical order of the sayings and miracles in Mark then he is unlikely to know the historical order of the sayings and miracles he passes on in Acts. As I have stated you need to reject the order of events in Acts as it is unreliable. You need to reject Luke’...

Re: No Christology in the Q community

to robert j, On point with the rest of the letter, Paul is reminding his converts that he had once done to other believers, the same as they are experiencing now. The message --- I was wrong then, just as those harassing you are wrong now. You are imagining things. What does that has to do with Gal ...

Re: No Christology in the Q community

to Michael BG, It is therefore a mistake to assume that when the author of a gospel or Acts had been passed on any dates it is historical. It is only Luke who adds dates. Therefore every date added by Luke is unlikely to be historical. In the same way as the gospel of Mark does not order the sayings...

Re: No Christology in the Q community

to Michael BG, You wrote: Luke often makes things up, such as Christianity starting at Jerusalem and spreading in an ordered way ending up at Rome. It is not so according to Acts. First, it is Syria & Cilicia & "southern" Galatia & Cyprus (1st journey), then "southern" Galatia, Macedonia & Achaia (2...

Re: No Christology in the Q community

to Michael BG, I want to go back on your fixation about Paul went to only Syria & Cilicia before he went to Jerusalem for the council. Gal 1:21 to Gal2:1 Then I went into the regions of Syria and Cili'cia. And I was still not known by sight to the churches of Christ in Judea; they only heard it said...

Re: No Christology in the Q community

From http://historical-jesus.info/appb.html Please note I used passages of Acts against "Luke" dating of the council of Jerusalem. When was the "council" of Jerusalem? Ac15:1-35 specifies this meeting occurred between the first and second journey. And most scholars agree this "council" in Jerusalem,...

Re: No Christology in the Q community

to Michael BG, Firstly I haven’t rejected Mark. Sorry, that was my misunderstanding. Secondly, I haven’t rejected Acts as having no historical value. Like Mark and Q, Acts could contain some traditions which are historical, but any dates attached to events are unlikely to be correct having been adde...
