Re: JAT Robinson's early dating redux

Brent Nongbri in his writings makes a special point that the terminus post quem of these manuscripts is far too early, making the date range far too thin. The scripts could easily be used in many cases into the 300s, 400s, 500s, maybe later. Unless there is a specific date marker, as occurs rarely. ...

Re: The New Testament Peshitta

What is your view on the word "Gabbatha"? It is given as "Hebrew" (as is "Golgotha") though Teeple states that it is Aramaic ... CW Aramaic names and loan-words would easily come into Hebrew. ============================ Discovering the Language of Jesus: Hebrew Or Ara...

The New Testament Peshitta

Until the late 1800s the Peshitta NT was considered a 2nd century text. That did not fit well with the Westcott-Hort theory so an attempt was made to change that to be as late as the 5th century. Note that Hort also had absurd theories of a Syriac recension, to go along with his Greek (Syrian) recen...

Re: Potamius of Lisbon references the heavenly witnesses in writing to Athanasius

Bill Brown "Which is not the Comma Johanneum (your so-called "heavenly witnesses") but let's not let that fact get in the way." When the context is the Father Son and Holy Spirit, and the "these three are one", it is clearly a reference to the heavenly witnesses, not an...

Re: Potamius of Lisbon references the heavenly witnesses in writing to Athanasius

Thank you Andrew for modifying your position. You tend to be more a thinker, and quite reasonable, unlike the textcrits :). I'll check out your reference. ADDED: p. 357, seeing how the "three are one" sections are similar, I will tend to go with Wilmart. Anyway, you end up around the same ...

invisible allegorizing becomes the normative faux textual claim - example Cyprian!

The theory of invisible allegorizing slipped in quietly in the heavenly witnesses debate. And I have not seen it used in any other spot in Biblical studies. The classic is Cyprian, 3rd century, The Unity of the Church (Trinity is not the topic.) The Lord says, "I and the Father are one" an...

Potamius of Lisbon references the heavenly witnesses in writing to Athana

Hi Andrew, For analysis, lets allow the theory that the Bible texts in 360 AD only had the earthly witnesses. (Classical ad hominem.) Despite many huge difficulties. Then Potamius would look like a fool writing to Athanasius, or anyone, that John wrote “the three are one” about the Father, Son and H...
