Re: Conan the Barbarian (1982)

https://m.media-amazon.com/images/M/MV5BMTQ4NzE2NDkzMF5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwNzkxOTAxMTI@._V1_.jpg I am fascinated by the two snakes facing each other. You have monstrous, primordial titans in the shadows of polytheistic, late bronze age religion. Typhon. Himself correlated for some reason to Seth. And ...

Re: YHWH Tetramorph? Yam Hadad Vav/Crook(Osiris) Hamor/Donkey(Set)

Like I said, Yahweh's function as Ultimate god is directly derived from the archaic Canaanite and Northerin Israelite beliefs in the mountain (usually Mt. Hermon) god El/Ba'al, who is first and foremost a Solar Bull God, equivalent to all other Mediterranean storm father deities (Shemesh the Solar ...

Re: Conan the Barbarian (1982)

So you're supporting Ukrainian Nazis? I like your scholarship, but here we have an "opinion, disregarded" moment.

Re: Two Marcions?

And there is either increasing consideration or even realisation that Christianity - both Marcion's version and the orthodox version - were and indeed are more pro-Roman than has been previously considered (perhaps as a result of a concerted effort in those times to overcome Roman vs Jewish adversa...

Re: Two Marcions?

But Marcion's theology and gospel got taken over and the subsequent theology, which became orthodoxy, was both more Jewish based and, at the same time, more anti-Jewish overall. And there is either increasing consideration or even realisation that Christianity - both Marcion's version and the ortho...

Edessan Christianity As Fear Of Severan Retribution

I mentioned this as an afterthought in another topic, but the idea is profound enough to merit a topic heading I think. When I search for these subjects in Google, depressingly, posts I've made in this forum come up near the top of the search list. The lesson is that this genre of discussion isn't r...

Re: Pseudo-Nero, The Jewish Star Prophecy, Roman Provenance

It doesn't take a lot of brain power to recognize the parallels between the false Nero phenomenon and the star prophecy. What is the "false Nero phenomenon"? I've never heard of it, but it sounds interesting. (I'm assuming it isn't the Nero Redivivus legend?) It is precisely Nero Redivivu...

Re: Two Marcions?

Final note. Abgar the Great is the client king of Edessa responsible for its Christianization and later catholicization. His reign is squarely in the Severan period, particularly his Christian activities. I believe the Severans would be interested in the fate of the Adiabene family in the Arab world...

Re: Two Marcions?

On the dating mentioned by Tertullian. I mistakenly remembered Tertullian's claim and now have already remembered it after hitting "submit". In any event, it's addenda. Tertullian claims 117 years between Pilate and Antoninus, celebrated by Marcionites as two times Christ's truth comes to ...

Two Marcions?

Recently have been convinced of the synoptic gospel authorship occurring in concert, in Rome. Or at least, Matthew and Marcion as proto-Luke using Mark. Or perhaps more simply, Mark, Matthew and Luke co-written by collaborating authors in one single moment. I believe there's evidence John may have b...
