Baptism came from Coptic

The term "baptism" or "baptise" occurs 19 times in the text Zostrianos, yet we have since understood that the Coptic word should be translated as "immersed" and the Coptic term for "baptism" / "baptise" does not appear in the text. It appears to hav...

Re: Why in Mark the event Resurrection is never described (answer: against Marcion)

2. Marcion did have the resurrection, Paul invented it, and then Mark had to come up with a reason why nobody knew. Which is exactly what he does - Brilliant! :cheers: My vote is for this option. Since I know, Martijn, that you are a priori a Paul mythicist, I would advise you the reading of The fa...

Re: Christus/Chrestus in the Original Texts

I hope you start to get some traction from the "professional Christian translators". I never will until it's too late, and even then I'll only get criticism, of which only a minority will be helpful Where are you up to atm in your "Complete Thomas Commentary" and when do you exp...

Re: Why in Mark the event Resurrection is never described (answer: against Marcion)

Or are you saying the longer ending of Mark was invented by Maricon? I am saying that Mark ends in 16:8 because "Mark" (author) was visibly disturbed by the Marcion's emphasis on resurrection, despite of the fact that Paul would have approved (that the resurrection event was emphasized by...

With all due respect, the Original Post is not claiming that GMark's failure to describe the resurrection is proof that Jesus is a myth.
Looks like John T is getting a bit over excited

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

So you are assuming that Paul here is hallucinating or having a vision, or speaking from a recollection to that, even though he never claims to have done any of that himself? Paul is hallucinating really or he claims (falsely) to have a hallucination, since he writes in a context where hallucinatio...

Re: Phillipian Baptism

What do you make of Lundhaug's "Begotten, Not Made, to Arise in This Flesh: The Post-Nicene Soteriology of the Gospel of Philip"? Not as a translator but in respect of the claim that Philip has knowledge of the Arian controversy and the "full-blown xtian baptism, in the name of the f...

Re: The Sethian School of 'Gnostic' Thought

I get the general drift but unfortunately do not have the sharp focus enabled by the ability to locate and translate the source Coptic text in the NHL. For this I rely on your work. Every single papyrus leaf in the NHL is available from Claremont Colleges The general drift seems to be that the prio...

Re: Christus/Chrestus in the Original Texts

So do you have links to the indices for Codex I and II ? Only hardly legal ones, and Brill and such. Google is your friend a bit off topic, can i ask a question on Thomas? The final saying most translations say something like "i shall make her male so that she will be a living spirit like you ...

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

Could you just give me a chapter and verse number please? 1 Corinthians 7:10-11: To the married I give this command (not I, but the Lord ): A wife must not separate from her husband. 11 But if she does, she must remain unmarried or else be reconciled to her husband. And a husband must not divorce h...
