Re: Comments on Handwriting Analysis and the Mar Saba Letter

If a monk wanted to record "Clement" why not do it instead in the Clement edition owned in Mar Saba? And do we know that Mar Saba owned the Clement edition in that time? Morton Smith wrote ( Clement of Alexandria , p. 289): As to the ultimate fate of the collection of Clement's letters, t...

Re: Comments on Handwriting Analysis and the Mar Saba Letter

I must emphasize that I am not an expert in Greek paleography, but IMHO the response above may miss my point. Cursive script uses joined up writing to write quickly and legibly. IIUC Tselikas indicates that some of the writing is joined in a way that looks cursive but would actually make the writin...

Re: Comments on Handwriting Analysis and the Mar Saba Letter

IMHO not enough weight is being given to some of the specific claims made by Tselikas. See particularly palaeographic-observations-2 where Tselikas lists the unusual pattern of pen movements used in writing the letter. Paananen and Viklund addressed this here: What then of Tselikas’s list of ninete...

Luke 16:16-17, Matthew 11:12

Consider Roth (pg. 321): "Epiphanius here provides a citation of the opening and final element of Luke 16:16. The elenchus reveals that he is primarily interested in the mentioning of 'the law and the prophets,' which likely explains his truncated reference." This is not obvious. If it we...

Yes, thanks. Henry Chadwick noted "Celsus confuses Herod the tetrarch (Luke iii. I) with Herod the Great, his father (Matt. ii. I-3)." Whether Celsus confused his source or whether the source Celsus used specified that, well, I do not today claim to know. I think, rather Matthew confused ...

Re: Logical errors in Christ Myth Theory

Life expectancy for someone who survived to adulthood (18) was likely over 40 years. I totally agree with that statement. Plato in his Laws talks frequently about sixty years old people (or older) who should be part of the polis government: - Thirdly, the choir of elder men, who are from thirty to ...
