Re: What Are the Arguments for κύριος being 'the Name Above All Names' (Phil 2:9)

Hansen: The verb lie exalted is linked to and defined by the next verb, lie gave: God supremely exalted Jesus when he graciously gave Jesus the name that is above every name.264 Jesus received that name as the result of God's gracious decision to "give freely as a favor."265 Some have proposed that ...

Re: What Are the Arguments for κύριος being 'the Name Above All Names' (Phil 2:9)

Heil's commentary: hear the chiastic development, via a series of predominantly alliterative parallels, from what Christ Jesus, “existing (ὑπάρχων) in the form of God (θεοῦ),” “considered (ἡγήσατο),” in “becoming in the likeness (ὁμοιώματι) of human beings” in the B element (2:6–7) to how “God exalt...

Re: What Are the Arguments for κύριος being 'the Name Above All Names' (Phil 2:9)

Fee's commentary: Part II (vv. 9–11) lacks both the poetry and the balanced clauses of Part I. Instead, it takes the form of basic Pauline argumentation. The ultimate consequence of Christ’s “mindset,” which led to his “humiliation,” Paul asserts, is that God has exalted him “to the highest place” (...

Re: What Are the Arguments for κύριος being 'the Name Above All Names' (Phil 2:9)

perhaps I was wrong. Gundry in his Php commentary: . The universal bowing in Jesus’ name and the universal confession, “Jesus Christ [is] Lord,” bring together body language (the bowing of knees) and verbal language (the confession of tongues) in acknowledgment that the human Jesus is also the divin...

Re: What Are the Arguments for κύριος being 'the Name Above All Names' (Phil 2:9)

I get that. I believe that. But I am wondering what the arguments are for the understanding that kurios is the name above all names. Some people hold that I believe. That interpretation is seen in more devotional literature, i'm guessing because they don't like the implication that the name Jesus w...

Re: Did the Jerusalem church even preach Jesus Christ?

Hope the author didn't pull a muscle with that stretch. C'mon John, you love talking about your imagined consistencies in the text. In the NT Babylon is Babylon except when it's Rome.

Re: Did the Jerusalem church even preach Jesus Christ?

See Ehrman on 1 Peter. It's apparently a Pauline letter that got misattributed to Peter. So, maybe not a forgery, just a mistake. Whatever the case, this letter tells us nothing about Peter. I never buy Ehrman's "polished Greek" arguments, he just has the wrong expectations of who these figures wer...

Re: Evidence Christianity started as mythicist

what's interesting about Jerome's piece is it clearly mirrors the gospel Jesus's story Born in Galilee (but confusion over Judea), escapes when persecutors come with his parents (to Tarsus not Egypt) then goes to Jerusalem to study law (as per child Jesus at the temple) Very perceptive. I second Be...
