Re: Jesus was Imaginary: My Prefential Terminology in Place of 'Mythicism'

Using the polemical "Fathers" as a "control group" is sickening. It's like using Donald Trump's advertising consortium to write a national history.

Re: Robyn Walsh, The Origins of Early Christian Literature

Walsh mentions "The Widow from Ephesus" Asks would the gospel writers have read this? [111] There was a married woman in Ephesus of such famous virtue that she drew women even from the neighbouring states to gaze upon her. So when she had buried her husband, the common fashion of following...
