Re: A New Signs Gospel

3. IF the Signs Gospel fills in the blanks, the blanks filled in are concerned with another Subject and not a "Jesus". Here is where the bus stops for many. The Roman/Flavian Hypothesis is simply not convincing to many, especially here on this site. So, move on if need be. Provisionally, you might ...

So if he's a day-god that's not far from a su...

Re: Richard Carrier on gMark parallel with Jesus ben Ananias

The gospel must have had less references to the OT, or even none at all. What is left of the gospels if you remove the OT references? And I'm not talking about Matthew's ham-fisted attempts at bending some ill-suited OT passages to his purpose, but all the alluded references that make up the bulk o...
