Re: The impure spirit was directed "against the house", not against Jesus

Is it accurate (as in: credible) to say that the (so to speak) "Government Issue" Priests (High Priest included) lacked 'authority' (respect) among the masses, who maintained a Priest class of their own behind the backs of the Government? Robert Eisenman seems to imply that James was of t...

Re: On the midrashical source behind “what have we to do with thee, thou Jesus of Nazareth?"

So, Giuseppe, why not read 2 Chronicles 34 - 35 and, if you are correct, see where the Story of Josiah leads? Josiah hears the Book of the Lord and then keeps the Passover AND the seven days of the Feast. Does this "Jesus" character do this? * SOME of the words are there, certainly, but do...

Re: On the midrashical source behind “what have we to do with thee, thou Jesus of Nazareth?"

It is 12 years later, after the murder of the 3000 at the Temple, as Archelaus is installed at the death of Herod. "What have you to do with us...?" That is: "We aren't the people who murdered the thousands." "...Have you come to destroy us?" The Priest - that is, the c...

Re: Musing upon the prologue to the Gospel of John

Teeple, Lit. Or. of Gosp. of John, p. 134 - 135: "After the later insertions are stripped off, the remainder is not a unity but contains two types of material: poetry characterized by chain-linkage construction (word, word: God, God; etc.) and hynm-like material which lacks chain linkage. The s...

Re: Dating Acts

Yet, strangely, Josephus tells us about the death of Jesus and his brother James but not Paul who lived in Rome under house arrest? :scratch: Granted it is an argument from silence...

Re: Question for Mythicists: Did Jesus Wear Clothes?

When the woman heard about Jesus, she came up through the crowd behind Him and touched His cloak. 28 For she kept saying, “If only I touch His garments, I will be healed.” Right but clearly the 'garment' is supernatural. Right? You're missing the part about 'power' being contained in the 'garment.'...

Dating Silas in Acts

Acts 15: 22 and on (RSV): [22] Then it seemed good to the apostles and the elders, with the whole church, to choose men from among them and send them to Antioch with Paul and Barnabas. They sent Judas called Barsab'bas, and Silas, leading men among the brethren.. Acts maps into the stories of Mucian...

Re: Dating Acts

That's alright, SG. I ask only that you consider the material. You'll note that I mention Mark and the year 110. Why? The Gospels tell a somewhat different History than Acts. Why? Tell us your History here, plz. 'N who was Verginius Rufus and what does he have to do with the Empty Tomb Stories? Best...
