Re: 35 counts of 'Chrestian' in the Nag Hammadi Library: and 2 for 'Christian'

Once more, with feeling: The entire Nag Hammadi Library contains about 200 ligatures / words that get translated with 'Christ'. However, only 2 of those words actually say Xristos . And 35 of them say Xrestos Yet there is not a single word in the entire NHL that says 'Chrest(ian(s))' Only the gospe...

35 counts of 'Chrestian' in the Nag Hammadi Library: and 2 for 'Christian'

I have finished analysing all of the Nag Hammadi Library; all 13 Codices and 52 texts. The full analysis is in the 37-page paper https://www.academia.edu/62646507/ChrEstian_all_over_the_Nag_Hammadi_Library The ligature ⲭⲣⲥ or ⲭⲥ occurs most frequently, which doesn't come to a surprise. There are 14...

Re: Evangelion of Marcion (as reconstructed by Wautier)

Is not that hard to make a reconstruction of Marcion. Just take the one by Klinghardt and remove every Roman element, every Judaic element, every attempt to fixate it in time or biotope The Tiberius scene? Rubbish. The Legion demon? Haven't you noticed that that exact word is a Roman misspelling in ...

Re: the Gospel of Philip says 'Chrestian' - and so does Codex I (Jung Codex)

Does ⲡⲉ = 'the', 'thy, or 'your' ? ⲡⲉ is a bit of a thingy, so to say. It can be the masculine definite article singular, a nexus pronoun / copula, a verb (jump), a noun (heaven) - https://coptic-dictionary.org/results.cgi?coptic=%E2%B2%A1%E2%B2%89&dialect=any&pos=any&definition=&de...

Re: What defines a text as Christian?

From antiquity anyway it is the use of the Nomina Sacra. That seems like a very minor criterion by which to define a text as Christian, focussing upon scribal convention (which need not have even been done by a Christian scribe!) rather than upon a text's content. I mean, to take a hypothetical (bu...
