Re: If Discussing Early Christianity Were a Sport What Would the Rules Be?

2. Rules governing discussions of the dating of Jesus (a) there was no consensus in antiquity as to when Jesus lived if he "lived" in the ordinary sense of the word, if he was born or flew down from heaven, what year(s) the gospel was set. It's quite incredible. Pilate? But Pilate was ima...

Re: Possible the original Pauline letters never mentioned Jesus?

Also, Neil brings up an interesting point. How much time needs to elapse to make it so that the original meaning in Paul's letters is no longer know to the reader? 20-50? Longer? If so, how much longer?

Re: Possible the original Pauline letters never mentioned Jesus?

You're assuming that Simonians interpreted Isaiah the same way Jews did. I'm not so sure about that. There would need to be some evidence as to how they interpreted it. On a different note. I know that the use of codes, secret words, and hidden messages was common in religious literature at the tim...

Re: Possible the original Pauline letters never mentioned Jesus?

Threads like this are why I no longer desire to come here any more. There's no Jesus in the early texts. Period. Just declensions of I and IH. Further, all we have are texts that use IC etc so speculation as to there being texts that lack it is just useless jacking off. We will never get anywhere un...

Re: A strong argument against the authenticity of Galatians

It seems to me that Galatians has been been revised multiple times, and that parts of Galatians precede Acts, while other parts were written after Acts. I think Acts and canonical Luke were produced in the mid second century. The Marcionite version of Galatians certainly precedes that. Acts was pro...

Re: Why in Acts the fate of Paul in Rome is missing

Charles, you are the ultimate example for me of what not to be. You are so invested in your narrative that you cannot see how truly unlikely it really is. Try stepping back a bit and give it a little critical thought. Rather than continuing to try to prove it right, deconstruct it and try to disprov...

No, I have found plenty that don't have any either.

Dunno about the tetragrammaton, sorry
Interesting. Copies from early XCanity? Or later?
