Re: New Mythicist Evidence: Gospel of Philip 9

The correct lineation is Philip 53:6-9 (Nag Hammadi Codex II, Tractate 3). There is no "Phillip 9." "It was not only when he appeared that he voluntarily laid down his life, but he voluntarily laid down his life from the very day the world came into being." -- Isenberg's translation (in the original...

Re: 'First Century Mark' Now Dated to Second/Third Centuries

https://brentnongbri.com/2018/06/12/first-century-mark-and-second-century-romans/ There you go. It implies that "First Century Mark" was supposed to be part of the early scraps mysteriously acquired by "The Green Collection" in 2011. The article also quotes Steve Green giving the whole game away: “...

Re: Titles of the gospels

If the original titles of the gospels were not the traditional titles, do you believe that they were originally untitled, or that they had other titles which were later excised? If originally untitled, how common was that in antiquity, for literature similar in length to the gospels? Perhaps one wo...

Re: Fragments Don't Lie But...

JW : Oh for Moses sake, I fear Jesus might actually return before CBS (Christian Bible Scholarship) puts the possible timetable together: 1) 2011 = Obbink discovers the fragment of GMark. 2) 2012 = Obbink lets it be known that there is a fragment of GMark that does have evidence of a first century ...

Obbink has given 10-day seminars on papyrology at Baylor. It appears that Obbink is the l...

Re: Vale Philip R Davies (1945-2018)

It's always a shame to lose one of the tiny minority of rational thinkers inside the Bible guild. Hopefully, his students will fill the void.

The Concept of "Authentic Pauline Epistles"

When did the concept of "Authentic Pauline Epistles" originate, and with whom? Has a book been written on this question? "Authentic Pauline Epistles" are invoked as axiomatic in the literature, i.e., "everyone" accepts seven as written by a historical Paul in the 50s/60s CE. This authenticity absolu...
