Re: Minimal Marcion

I have finished the book, and am working with the Reconstruction now. If you have Roth: just toss it, it is nothing more than Harnack in a fresh jacket, and both are basically mere copies of what the Church Fathers alleged One of these days we might find Marcion for real, just like we found Thomas. ...

Re: The utter insignificance of John the Bapist in Mark

This "prophet"? He enters the Stage in Mark 1:4 and exits in Mark 1:9, and the rest indeed is chatter about him. But let me humour you and give you a full summary of all the times that either John or his supposed core business is mentioned in Mark: BOOK OF Mark Chapter 1 The Mission of Jo...

Re: Why did the Gnostics use Paul and Gospels?

It seems that even Marcion's Gospel and Marcion's version of the Pauline letters still deal with the Jewish scriptures and still present a Jesus who is at least tangentially tied to Judaism. The spirit does not exist in a vacuum - body and spirit go together like a horse and carriage...you can't ha...

The utter insignificance of John the Bapist in Mark

........................... Right. So the meagre 6 verses that John the Baptist gets in Mark, the sum total of his entire ministry, this ministry of this Prophet Of Most High, the only Prophet ever to not only accurately predict the messiah, yet also to be alive when said messiah finally did show u...

Re: Patrick Boistier on the first (marcionite) corruption of the pauline epistles

But Chrestians indeed, I am sure that the Marcionites referred to themselves as such. The NT replaced that by christos, made up a lame story about being anointed - try outs at which are still visible all over the Church Fathers - and struggled with the application of that, to which Paul's pathetic ...

Re: 'Father / son / child' in all of the NT: Titus through Revelation

One way to look for progression in development of ideas (in order to establishment priority / order) is to follow the evolution of a concept.

Re: Dogs remain dogs (in Mark)

You have been programmed with entire volumes of what John would be, none of which can be traced back to the NT or anything else, exactly because it is entirely devoid of baptism and John the Baptist - but still, you can't get your head around the simple fact that Marcion precedes the John the Bapti...
