Re: If the synoptic gospels are three different translations of a common Hebrew or Aramaic source

Mark 1: 7 (RSV): [7] And he preached, saying, "After me comes he who is mightier than I, the thong of whose sandals I am not worthy to stoop down and untie. What does this mean? 1 Chronicles 24: 1 - 2, 7, 14 [1] The divisions of the sons of Aaron were these. The sons of Aaron: Nadab, Abi'hu, El...

Re: If the synoptic gospels are three different translations of a common Hebrew or Aramaic source

Thank you very much for your reasoned responses. The first question I have for you involves Production: Do you believe that the NT (Mark) existed ONLY after Mark produced the Greek Version? You make it appear as if we know of any other version. The Gospel that we know as such only became assigned to...

Re: If the synoptic gospels are three different translations of a common Hebrew or Aramaic source

I come in Peace, mlinssen. Your positions interest me. A few Q's: What great circular reasoning It's pathetic to assume a Hebrew or Aramaic source, with the Latin loanwords in Mark...

Re: If the synoptic gospels are three different translations of a common Hebrew or Aramaic source

If, however, we have three different translations of a common Hebrew or Aramaic source, each of which has been subject to the normal process of being passed on with the addition of new material, perhaps, and with the ever-present possibility of scribal corruption, our task of interpretation is at o...

Re: The "Assembly of God"

Suggestion: Like "Baptism" the "Assembly of God" may not mean what its honorable Intention implies. The Phrase might be a shaded phrase for "Roman Legions". https://brewminate.com/the-battle-of-corinth-and-the-rise-of-roman-domination-over-greece-in-146-bce/ "While...

Re: John 18: 19 - 23: "What Did the High Priest Say?"

I would suggest a different interpretation of names. Think in terms of politics. That's what I've been doin' for almost 15 years now... "John whose other name Mark" was probably simply read "John" in the original source document used by Acts. Perhaps but also maybe not. Raskin n...

All we need to do is find an "Objective Calendar" for calculating purposes. The "Julian Day Calendar" f'rinstance. We need to find an Objective Sighting of the New Moon and there are the US Naval Observatory Calculations for that. D. Note that we are participating in the War of ...

Re: John 18: 19 - 23: "What Did the High Priest Say?"

Acts 12: 25 (RSV): [25] And Barnabas and Saul returned from Jerusalem when they had fulfilled their mission, bringing with them John whose other name was Mark. History!!! Bar-n-Abba(s) and Saul return to...Rome. Who was the Son of the Father? In this instance, that would be Titus. Who was "Saul...
