Re: Cold Case Christianity

Why can't 1 Peter have been written by Silvanus? The text is sort of ambiguous but if Silvanus did write what Peter dictated I don't see why Peter couldn't be the author. I'm not as knowledgeable as you guys but the letter is well attested externally. I don't care if I'm a "clown scholar" ...

Re: Cold Case Christianity

Yeah when apologists try to make their case by quoting works in the Bible regarded as forgery it's always a head-scratcher lol. I can tell I'm a lot more conservative than the other guys here so that might explain why you thought that xD. Anyways, I do think 1 Peter is probably authentic so he has g...

Re: Paul’s Third Heaven Revisited

Re: Richard Carrier debates Craig Evans

We have plenty of proto-Catholic writers attacking "heresies" all over the place well before 380. Where is the mythcists denomination? Exactly, they don't make an appearance. Also I'd like to add that appealing to a conspiracy is never going to make a good argument.

Re: Paul’s Third Heaven Revisited

Re: Carrier on Ehrman and Tim O'Neill

... the 'bishop of Jerusalem' was consistently associated with as Jesus's brother ... That James was actually Jesus's brother and was a 'bishop of Jerusalem' as all extant history tells us? What evidence is there that Christianity was developed and structured enough to have bishops, & other rol...
