Independently from me, this author reached the my same conclusion: The Gospel of Mark goes to great lengths to show that during his lifetime Jesus distanced himself from any public statements about being a populist leader, messianic claimant or miracle worker (Mark 1:23-25, 1:34, 1:40-45, 5:43, 7:36...

Re: On the original meaning of "Son of Panthera" as "Son of David"


Born then of the line of Nathan, the son of David, Levi begot Melchi and Panther: Panther begot Barpanther, so called. This Barpanther begot Joachim: Joachim begot the holy Mother of God .

It is evident that Levi == son of David = Panther.

On the original meaning of "Son of Panthera" as "Son of David"

Re: Many of the Jews and many of the Greeks

Corollary to your discourse is that the only negative "TF" ever existed was on the mouth of anti-Christian critics as Porphyry. If Eusebius insisted on Jesus being winner of Greeks, at the contrary Porphyry et alia insisted that Jesus was how much more anti-Gentile and anti-Greek he could ...

Re: Turmel on Loisy (again)

Basically, Turmel and Loisy agree on a point: Paul was not a mystic, not a hallucinator.

Turmel on Loisy (again)

1. NOTE SUR LA NOUVELLE APPRECIATION DES EPITRES PAULINIENNES PAR M.

Loisy qui, en 1922 ( Les livres du Nouveau Testament ) suivait...

Re: The Revelation of the Mystery Hidden for Ages

Thomas Jefferson dies in 1826. In 1941, 115 years later, a life of Jefferson is published by a business man named Mark Eon. But Polly Karr, a contemporary of Mark Eon, comes along and says, "No, Satan. I knew the students of Thomas Jefferson. One of them did not die until the presidency of The...

Hi Ken, I am going to read the Frans Dornseiff's article, Lukas der Schriftsteller. Mit einem Anhang: Josephus und Tacitus. that had persuaded Carlson.
