Re: Titles of the gospels

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 ...

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...

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

Where did the "mummy mask" claim come from if it was always known to be part of the Oxyrhynchus collection? None of the 2013-14 hype mentioned Oxyrhynchus.
