Re: Arguing Against Terms

Re: Four Iterations

Where does one read Philo on Genesis 42:11? What part of what work of Philo? Yonge's 'On the Confusion of Languages' LINK : (146) And even if there be not as yet any one who is worthy to be called a son of God, nevertheless let him labour earnestly to be adorned according to his first-born word, th...

Re: Arguing Against

The forum has become so crazy in recent years where we are essentially arguing things that have no relationship whatsoever to texts, evidence or ancient witnesses? Is this a sign of the general decline of civilization or is it some 'step forward' that I am not entirely aware of yet? Please give me ...

Re: Put to Death, by Burning?

I'm aware Christianity wasn't State-sanctioned in the Empire until AFTER 300 AD. I wondered about the immolation of apostates/heretics by any groups or minor authorities (recorded, but that I do not know of) before 300 AD.
