Re: The meaning of ἀπεκδυσάμενος in Col 2:15

What happened to Ben? Seems to be away from the forum, taking a breather perhaps. Hope he comes back! Amen. If Ben is listening: If you think the level of conversation has deteriorated to a point where you just don't want to deal with it anymore, you could perhaps adopt some basic mental "filt...

Re: Analysis of Philo on Therapeutae

billd89, Since I think you might appreciate this Thank you for this. I'm confused, though. Is your analysis based on the original Greek or another language? I cannot read Greek, but in making my own (21st C. American English) translations I quickly found some very troubling discrepancies in Yonge's...

Analysis of Philo on Therapeutae

billd89, Since I think you might appreciate this, I once applied the same method I use for the Pauline letters to Philo's section of De vita contemplativa 1.1-90 ("About the Contemplative Life," C D Yonge, vol 1, 1854) on the Therapeutae. The sections I colored Red seems to be from an orig...

Re: "James the Just": What is the origin of the phrase?

I don't think that "James the Just" (Jacob the Righteous One) was invented as a nick name until the 2nd century CE (the 101-200 range). This was Hegesippus' invention. To me, H. clearly created his account of James' death from several sources, not all of which I am convinced were stories ...

Re: Am I a Terrible Person, to Ask ...
