Re: Why in Mark the event Resurrection is never described (answer: against Marcion)

That the author of Mark did not put pen to scroll until after Marcion? precisely. I believe that gMark was a compendium based on oral tradition/eye witness accounts that was put in book/scroll form around 55-65 C.E. With all due respect, the date which you quote is rather early compared to mainstre...

But they can claim to have done so - or be claimed to have done so by other people.

With all due respect, the Original Post is not claiming that GMark's failure to describe the resurrection is proof that Jesus is a myth.

Re: Gullotta and Hurtado versus Carrier: a 'dialogue' between deaf

I'd love to be kind and today is a good day to be like that, but I just can't be bothered, sorry. I think you shouldn't bother either, life's too short and as we say in NL, one idiot can ask more questions than ten wise men can answer That is quite all right; I just hope that I am not the idiot in ...

Re: Gullotta and Hurtado versus Carrier: a 'dialogue' between deaf

4. Appealing to pre-gospel written texts which served as the basis for gospels is fundamentally problematic for the same reasons as I raised with Q. How is that problematic? Can you give a pointer to your Q response? Certainly. Would you be kind enough to tell me whether the rest of my response was...

A New Topic for my researches - Ramana Maharshi

I have, throughout this forum, attracted some interest (and notoriety) through comparing Christianity's origins to the origins of Mahayana Buddhism. I remain what my user's name is. But I found recently a copy of the book "Ramana Maharshi: Interpretations of his Enlightenment", by J. Glenn...

Re: Gullotta and Hurtado versus Carrier: a 'dialogue' between deaf

ABuddhist, why keep spamming your point on apocalypticism? You know I debunked it, and you know you can't answer literally anything I brought up. No one else is reading your comments but me and occasionally someone else. Who are you looking to fool? "the gospels are similarly filled with mirac...

Re: 'When Did Jesus Live?'

So his 2 references are « Did Jesus exist ? » and « The song of the Just and Michael ? » :lol: If you take the time to actually read: Did Jesus Exist? you would realize Dr. Ehrman has a whole chapter titled: Non-Christian Sources for the Life of Jesus. pg. 35-68. Such sources, though, are late (on ...

Re: 'When Did Jesus Live?'

When did Jesus live ? Its really a nonsense question is it not? Historical evidence that Jesus existed needs to be provided (Jesus understood as some version or variation of the gospel Jesus) then, and only then, can one attempt to investigate a time frame for his life. Methinks Jesus historicists ...

Re: Who are the scholars who have denied the historicity of the Teacher of Righteousness?

I believe I once read an article that briefly mentioned one (or more) historians who rejected the historicity of the Teacher. But I would be unable to find the references unfortunately. This idea has already crossed my mind. It could explain some things but i think he most likely existed. Could it ...
