Re: book of enoch

This o.p. for all intents and purposes seems like spam. richard allan ritter joined the forum a few minutes before posting to mention his own work. He doesn't even indicate why anyone should read it, let alone a link to it. Well, if anyone is interested in richard allan ritter's effort, try here . T...

Re: C.S. Lewis on anthropomorphic language

You're the one asserting that it doesn't interest me Oh, so the subject does interest you then? You've already told me three times it does not. And of course you should know. I don't know why you feel you can assume it is of interest that someone in the 1940s made such an assertion or what relevanc...

Re: C.S. Lewis on anthropomorphic language

It's a bit hard, you know. One has to read it to find out where you were going. When you have read enough to know you aren't interested, then you can ignore it. It's really not that difficult... You published the stuff here. Live with the consequences. Right, you come into threads to say that the t...

Re: C.S. Lewis on anthropomorphic language

I don't know why you feel you can assume it is of interest that someone in the 1940s made such an assertion or what relevance it would have to anyone here. If you aren't interested in the thread, then just ignore it! Simples! :D It's a bit hard, you know. One has to read it to find out where you we...

Re: Jesus' prediction of the destruction of the temple

Well, it's also in Thomas 71 in a much more primitive form ("I will destroy this house and nobody will be able to rebuild it"), so that's a triple independent attestation. A guy was hiking in the hills with a hiking companion, when the companion, who'd gone off to have a piss, got bitten on his gen...

Re: C.S. Lewis on anthropomorphic language

I don't know why you are rehearsing ideas from a christian children's writer of the 1940s, perhaps other than he inspired a lot of nonsense in the minds of Britain's young and so remained in the imagination for a few generations. I don't know why you feel you can assume it is of interest that someon...

Re: Are there examples of verbs being treated as nomina sacr

If you remember the crudful thread about the Dura Europos fragment, there is a nomen sacrum in that text ΣΤΑ which Kraeling argues was a verbal nomen sacrum, based on the existence of different verbal forms of σταυροω from Codex Bezae. He says on page 9 of his monograph: But it should be noted that ...

Christianity in Jewish literature

The presence of Jesus in Jewish literature--principally in the Babylonian Talmud under the name Yeshu ha-Notzri --is frequently mentioned in efforts to sustain the notion of the historicity of Jesus. It's a rather strange idea considering there are no references to Jesus in the Jerusalem Talmud, whe...
