Re: Kings Of Osrhoene; Why Ptolemy Menneus Was Philip Epiphanes, And Christian Origins

The most important takeaway is that Philip I Epiphanes Philadelphus was the same as Ptolemy Menneus and "Ma'nu II" of Osrhoene. Important consequences are that Ptolemy's son Philippion would therefore be Philip II Philoromaios, and that this person is also identified with Tiridates II of ...

Re: Greek Loanwords in Mishnaic Hebrew

https://www.tyndalearchive.com/TABS/Jastrow// Thanks -- but unfortunately I can't get the page to work as I think it is meant to. Hyperlinks on letters don't open the associated pages. At least I have the pdf volumes, though -- a second best option. Hmmm, Works for me. Usually it's my computer that...

Re: “Did Mark Bottom Out?” Or “A Titanic Failure”

Similar for Michael Turton's work. I read every page of it ages ago when I was on here before. Couldn't get enough of it. But again, I found myself challenged to get it sometimes. I couldn't always see the brackets and connections he presented. That's me, though. I haven't seen Michael Turton for a...

Re: Going AWOL

Not saying it didn’t happen D. H., but another peculiar thing is an AWOL telling a stranger he was AWOL. Maybe he was a…. Kidding. Well, I sure hope that I have not joined the ranks of the tricksters in your estimation. Kidding. :D I 1st encountered an AWOL sailer as a kid. My did was the youth gro...

Re: My own remarks on Secret Mark

mr. brewski, You've never had something weird happen out of the blue? I've experienced it before. Once, in a high end restaurant in the Flats district of Cleveland (on the Cuyahoga River, I think it was D'Poos), it was mid day Wednesday. I was selling cars and we get a weekday off to offset working ...

Re: Demotic Gospel of Thomas hoax

I did some research into this with a friend who lives in New Orleans. I researched the newspaper in question. I could dig up what I came up with. That would be great. See my additional comment above re the comic strip character Batson D. Belfry. You may remember them, as Shoe could have been run in...

Re: Demotic Gospel of Thomas hoax

Hi stephen, I take it you never did get the offprint? Seems finding a copy of the journal number should have been possible. A recent post suggests that you are not so sure of its legitimacy. DCH Edit: I suppose I should add that the fictitious name is probably derived from a cartoon figure, Batson D...

Re: "The Lord" and his "brother" named "James": Rereading the allegory of two sons

m, You may be right there. The legends about Mary's "virginity" at the point of conception of Jesus, which became popular in the mid 2nd century CE evidenced by Irenaeus & the letters of Ignatius, were defensive rationalizations. On whether Jesus was a bastard child or not I am not wil...

I hope I can be a decent member. I would like to bring up a topic of recent interest to me, which is a possible hist...

Re: "The Lord" and his "brother" named "James": Rereading the allegory of two sons

LOL. Quite some jumping through hoops there! Can't have Mary get a special position of course, being the Virgin - just sit there and be pretty, and be meek. They surely were not only hateful men, but rather ungrateful bastards really Interesting to see that it was likely (advocated?) that she becam...
