Re: Sinaiticus authenticity discussion Wed 11/30/2022 - James Snapp Jr. and Steven Avery

Furthermore, any hypotheses assuming a forgery after late antiquity and before modern times lack any motive. Does this imply that you accept the hypothesis that it is dated to the 4th century? Whenever a manuscript like this is "discovered", the more ancient it is, the more valuable it is...

Re: My interview on History Valley

Obviously the so-called heretics preceded the proto-orthodox. Even Justin Martyr, the earliest figure who could be called proto-orthodox, complained about Marcion and other Gnostic types. It is well established now that Marcion was the first to utilize a written "New Testament" type work,...

Re: My interview on History Valley

43:28 Working Title of new book sounds interesting: Prophecy, heresy and forgery convinced the Romans that Jesus was real You say (roughly) "Heresy is important, the heretics promoted Jesus being real // the heretics popularised the gospel story. Gnostic heretics misrepresent teachings of Jesus...

Re: The Most Consistent Criticism of Gmirkin's Hypothesis

No. Yonathan Adler and Russell Gmrkin are not in lock step since they are actually operative in different fields of specific research. The way I see it is that they are both specialists working within their own territory and frameworks. Adler is reticent to comment - he is "agnostic" https...

Re: The Most Consistent Criticism of Gmirkin's Hypothesis

There are Persian loanwords and Persian influence Why are we returning to this assertion? It's a deflection from the finding that the law codes in the Torah reflect a loan from those found in Plato and a knee-jerk reaction to the data driven finding that there is no unambiguous physical evidence fo...

Re: Sinaiticus authenticity discussion Wed 11/30/2022 - James Snapp Jr. and Steven Avery

I love this "two sides" argument. "The world is round." But you haven't given enough attention to the possibility it might be flat ... The world has antipodes. "As to the fable that there are Antipodes, that is to say, men on the opposite side of the earth, where the sun ri...

Re: Thomas and the Synoptics: Relativity hypotheses

I will respond separately to your technical claims -- Logia 79, 47, 45, 39, 76 -- above that redaction criticism demonstrates far beyond reasonable doubt , that Thomas precedes the canonicals. Initial proposition: Redaction criticism demonstrates that Thomas precedes the canonicals. The argument is...

Re: From Chrestian to Christian - Philip beyond the grave

This paper deals with an even more exceptional case, namely the fact that the NHL contains the only text in the entire world that combines ⲭⲣⲏⲥⲧⲓⲁⲛⲟⲥ as well as ⲭⲣⲓⲥⲧⲓⲁⲛⲟⲥ in one and the same text; Philip is this most unique text, and Philip contains it all: ⲓⲥ̅, ⲓ̅ⲏ̅ⲥ, ⲭⲥ̅, ⲭⲣⲥ̅, ⲭⲣⲏⲥⲧⲓⲁⲛⲟⲥ and ⲭⲣ...

Re: The basic reason why the Ascension of Isaiah has an earthly crucifixion

Please answer the following questions, using the extant versions of the text of the Vision of Isaiah: 1. Where are the demons , and in what form are they in, according to the texts? Do you happen to know what the earliest texts actually say: whether (a) "demons" or (b) "daemons"...
