Re: Justin Martyr, the Gospel of Luke, and Marcion.

I go away for one day for a beach trip and come back to find another great Ben thread idea. I haven't read through the whole thread yet but I've always liked this table from Neil's site. http://vridar.info/xorigins/justinnarr.htm I like that table, too. It is one of about 5 different resources I re...

Re: Is Paul Described as Having a 'Stopover' in Rome?

I like SA's idea of a castrated/trans Markion/Markellina, makes me wonder why he was also known as colobodactylus (stubby "finger")

Re: Some Observations on the Nomina Sacra of the First Three Centuries

Pirating abandonware is illegal but has become the only way to acquire Bibleworks, making it a grey area ethically. If you're not comfortable with torrents, you can message me to figure something out. The CNNTS data is also available in Logos and Accordance. Having seen the interface for it in both...

Re: 1 Thess 2:14-15 : "the Jews who killed the Lord Jesus"

If the Jews killing Jesus is original (and early) in Thess., it takes us back to the GPeter and GLuke additions of Herod in the passion narrative. So which is more original, crucifixion of Jesus by Pilate and the Romans, or killing of Jesus by Herod? Assuming FTSOA that Paul knew an account of Jesu...
