Re: Turmel on the Testimonium Flavianum

Giuseppe -- this next section mostly okay up till page 39 but stops short of page 40. Can you type out the first half of page 40, please. Thanks! Arrêtons ici cet examen dont ont été provisoirement éliminés les miracles créés de toutes pièces par la fiction et qui seront étudiés plus tard. Notre enq...

Re: Turmel on the Testimonium Flavianum

Thanks, Giuseppe. Here's the next bit -- but I've stopped again where I am unable to read large parts of the text. Can you type out the first 9 lines of page 22 here, please? Thanks. Sans doute leur malveillance qui n'est pas niable autorise les soupçons. Mais Jésus a été à même d'infliger un dément...

Romans 16:25-27 25 Τῷ δὲ δυναμένῳ ὑμᾶς στηρίξαι κατὰ τὸ εὐαγγέλιόν μου καὶ τὸ κήρυγμα Ἰησοῦ Χριστοῦ, κατὰ ἀποκάλυψιν μυστηρίου χρόνοις αἰωνίοις σεσιγημένου, 26 φανερωθέντος δὲ νῦν διά τε γραφῶν προφητικῶν κατ’ ἐπιταγὴν τοῦ αἰωνίου θεοῦ εἰς ὑπακοὴν πίστεως εἰς πάντα τὰ ἔθνη γνωρισθέντος , 27 μόνῳ σο...

Re: Dave Allen: an analysis

. . . In his mammoth study of the Slavonic Josephus, N.A. Meschersky's argued . . . PS The link to Roger's own page on the Slavonic Josephus: https://www.tertullian.org/rpearse/josephus/slavonic.htm The webpage mentions an English translation of Meshchersky's study. What is the English title of thi...

Re: Placement of the Gospels by the editor

I've been asking myself, why the Gospels were identified as they were by the editor of the NT and why they were arranged in the order that they were. The question is also asked and answered by the classicist George A. Kennedy in New Testament Interpretation through Rhetorical Criticism : Available ...

Re: The Revelation of the Mystery Hidden for Ages

. . . . The writer of the gloss wants to impose the idea that Paul got his revelation through the medium of "the prophetic writings," i.e. OT scriptures. But as Turmel observes, this makes the whole thought hopelessly incoherent. The mystery cannot be hidden for long ages and only now rev...

Re: Dave Allen arguing for a genuine Testimonium Flavianum: a criticism

I'll try and clarify. Assuming there is an authentic core to the Josephan passages about Jesus, then Josephus did not invent this material. Correct. But that's missing my point. Therefore at least some people (maybe only followers of Jesus) in Judea before the Jewish war were making claims about a ...

Re: Turmel on the Testimonium Flavianum

Hi Giuseppe, I've run the first 11 pages through a translator but got stuck with the first 11 lines on page 12. Any chance you can type those out so I can continue this translation? Thanks (The translation will be crude -- I haven't checked it all and have not been able to always enter the correct F...

Re: Why did the Gnostics use Paul and Gospels?

. . . . Again, what evidence do we have . . . . I posted this in 2014: https://earlywritings.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=14553#p14553 It is a string of excerpts from Joesephus. I think I may also have posted similar or even more outrageous claims in FRDB/IIDB and CrossTalk2. Anyways, I am re-posting ...
