Re: "The Framework of the Story of Jesus" by Karl Ludwig Schmidt

. Over at vridar, Neil once discussed McGrath's analogy that the gospels are windows through which the biblical historian looks to identify history. The biblical historian sees the gospels as a window that needs to be “looked through” in order to try to identify the history on the other side. https...

Re: The Seed in Romans 1:3 and Elsewhere

Meh. Not necessarily conclusive. It is better to say "it comes up in discussions of Marcion." That's about all. Tertullian objects to Marcion's reading and their own prophets (as distinct from and the prophets ) This doesn't make sense unless Tertullian was convinced there was a version o...

Re: The Seed in Romans 1:3 and Elsewhere

FWIW Marcion seems definitely to have had some version of 1 Thessalonians 2:14-16 in his text. See viewtopic.php?f=3&t=1840 It is not a reading restricted to the orthodox text.

Re: Refining Eusebius's claims about the Flavian Testimony

Thank you for getting back to me. Andrew. I do not dispute that pseudo-Hegesippus knew the Antiquities , and presumably you do not dispute that they don't always quote from it as the many marked differences between the two versions of "Paulina and Mundus" eloquently illustrate. I also tru...

Re: Is the Muratorian Canon a Fourth Century Fake?

https://brill.com/view/journals/nt/60/1/article-p55_55.xml?lang=en This paper argues that the Fragment represents an attempt to provide a venerable second-century precedent for a later position on canon. It is not certain that the Muratonian Canon claims to be a c 200 CE work. The claim that the Sh...

Re: Josephus Antiquities 20.200 on James: The scholars who doubt

Pliny's letter has a lot in it that's not in Tertullian, who chose to attack on just part of it. Not so much : - Formulas of politeness and formatting necessary for any epistolary writing - Pliny's ignorance about the condemnations of the Christians —> Logical because otherwise the correspondence w...

Re: Josephus Antiquities 20.200 on James: The scholars who doubt

I find it interesting that letter 96 has no specific time and place to it and just happens to fall between two other letters that are at opposite ends of Pliny territory. letter 92 and letter 98 both refer to Paphlagonia. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paphlagonia#/media/File:Asia_Minor_in_the_G...
