Re: Why 1 Timothy 6:13 was moved to mention Pilate

One wonders why Paul didn't mention Pilate to a similar goal, at least to make it clear that the deity has shown himself in the recent times. Certainly one does!

Re: 1 Clement & the Gospel of Matthew?

For me it would be a matter of dating 1 Clement, and since I'm happy with c. 95 CE, then the question for me would be how many written gospels were there c. 95 CE.

Re: 1 Clement & the Gospel of Matthew?

I wonder if someone could help me out here. I'm sure that this subject must have come up before but here goes.
