Re: On dating the Gnostic literature after 325 CE

Yes, your thesis is still fucking crap. Go ahead and show that each piece of literature is indeed post Eusebius instead of claiming they are and making us show otherwise. We all know this gnostic literature post 325 crap is nothing more than a rectal smuggling of your previous bible invented in 325 ...

Re: Pseudo-Ephrem: Marcion Erased John 15:2 - 5 From His Gos

When do church theologians stop talking about what Marcionite(s) took out of the gospels/epistles? Pseudo-Ephraim is circa 7th century right?

Re: Greek "nomina sacra" - encryption of the sacred names

Can't wait to see how this ties into the post-constantine invention of the bible gnostic apocrypha

Re: On dating the Gnostic literature after 325 CE

That hypothesis does not seem able to explain MacDonald's idea that sections of the pastorals were a literary reaction to the Paul/Thecla stories circulating orally, especially among the order of widows, as in the gossipy old women that "Paul" writes about. The pastorals also go on a normalization c...

Re: On dating the Gnostic literature after 325 CE

It's funny you mention MacDonald, because he places the pastorals in opposition to Paul/Thecla stories, whether written or oral, and he leans oral.

Re: What is the earliest Christian sarcophagus?

I know there is debate about the Orante and it certainly seems to have predated Christianity but I thought its use so frequently in biblical scenes indicated it had been borrowed and reused by the Christians. http://depts.drew.edu/jhc/AbrahamsenOrante.pdf by V Abrahamsen - ‎2002 They also appear to...
