Re: Chrestianity preceded Christianity, and redaction criticism demonstrates it in abundance

The order of texts: Thomas writes his text about self salvation: the kingdom is of your inside and of your eye. It's not about any Jesus we know, not about Christianity, not even about Chrestianity: Thomas precedes all that John takes that into a narrative, fully breathing the spirituality of Thoma...

Re: From Chrestian to Christian - Philip beyond the grave

1 not sure whether " the Greek ΧΣ " as written is meant; or " which the Greeks called ΧΣ " Thanks Mac, incorrect contraction there, and a typo. It should read this: Philip...part of a movement that came to be formed among Hebrews – not Judeans or Judaics – who had ΙΗΣ ΧΡΣ as the...

Chrestianity preceded Christianity, and redaction criticism demonstrates it in abundance

Chrestianity came into existence in the first CE, perhaps second at the latest. Given the fact that Xristos doesn't start to appear in (loose) texts until 4th / 5th CE: The Interchange of ι and η in the Spelling of Χριστ- Words in Egyptian Papyri I reckon that Christianity didn't really launch until...

From Chrestian to Christian - Philip beyond the grave

It's finally there, "concise Philip" Thomas Miscellaneous, Part VI, 2022 It ought to be common knowledge that no Greek or Latin manuscript ever writes out the name for Jesus or Christ in full: where the Greek exclusively uses ⲓⲥ ⲭⲥ, the Latin employs ⲓⲏⲥ ⲭⲣⲥ, even literally transcribing th...

Re: Tertullian prefers John over all the others combined

Mark: 6 Matthew: 9 Mark and Matthew's rare occurrences are puzzling of course: aren't we talking the precious prizes of Churchianity here? Why haven't they been showcased more, why do they merely sulk in the background? I assume that GMark was mentioned least because its portrayal of Jesus is alien...

Tertullian prefers John over Mark & Matthew combined

I thought it would be interesting to do a bean counting in his Adversus Marcionem: Matthew, Mark, Luke, John: the canonical order. Humour me and just jot down some numbers please: in percentages, what do you guess the division among these four is like? Who has the most, who the least, etc. I cleanse...

Re: Why has Martijn not been thanked for his research by Goodacre, Gathercole, and me?

Scholars are less likely to engage 'academically' with your work if it's not published in academic [peer-reviewed] journals (and even then they mightn't: you have no right to expect anyone to respond) Which raises the question - has any research by non-academics, non professionals in a particular f...
