Re: Turmel on why Irenaeus wrote that Jesus lived to 50 years old

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...

Re: Dave Allen: an analysis

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. He raises an objection against your argument that Tacitus didn't read Josephus by quoting Octavius of Minucius Felix: Carefully read over their Scri...

Turmel on Loisy who reviewed Turmel

Dans Remarques sur la littérature épistolaire du Nouveau Testament (1935), p. 6, M. Loisy parlant des épîtres pauliniennes écrit ceci: «Il faut reconnaître à J. Turmel (H. Delafosse) le mérite d'avoir posé la question sur son véritable terrain... Son analyse des textes est bien orientée dans l'ense...

Turmel on why Irenaeus wrote that Jesus lived to 50 years old

Here Turmel mentions explicitly the deniers of the historicity of Jesus: very intriguing! CHAPITRE V IDENTITÉ DU LIBÉRATEUR-ROI (JÉSUS-CHRIST) On l'appelle Jésus-Christ. Et les récits évangéliques nous expliquent que le premier de ces deux noms fut donné par un ange au fils de Marie. Mais ces récits...

Turmel: Jesus was a rebel

It is intriguing the fact that Turmel wrote the following words in a time when he was in full knowledge of the best mythicist case (see the mention of Couchoud's book in note 1): LE PROGRAME DE JÉSUS C'est à cette phalange qu'appartient Jésus. Lui aussi essaya d'arracher son pays au joug de la puiss...

Re: The Revelation of the Mystery Hidden for Ages

even the detail of Isaac carrying the wood on which he was to be offered was seen as revelation that the son of God would carry his cross. do you assume that already Paul saw Jesus as bearer of the cross (as different from being merely crucified on the cross)? Isn't this an assumption that Paul kne...

Re: Dave Allen: an analysis

Thank you, Ken. I remain a bit skeptical about Tacitus having not read Josephus (and a bit embarrassed by the Carlson's objection appealing to a servant of Tacitus), while I concede that your objection appears more strong when you say that we have not enough parallelisms to put Tacitus's Testimonium...

Re: Turmel on the Testimonium Flavianum

Continuation of the same page 40: -c) Jean raconte que Jésus alla à Jérusalem dès le début de sa carrière publique (2,13) et il le ramène ensuite plusieurs fois dans cette ville. En quoi il est en opposition absolue avec les synoptiques lesquels, dans leur description de la carrière publique de Jésu...
