Re: The dominical logia (for Ulan).

Any wild and crazy ideas what Cerinth or Merinth might mean in Samaritian?

Re: The Function of 'Prophetic Fulfillment' in the Passion N

by replacing "martyred Galilean" with any of the following: Christ figure, Messiah, Theophony

or are the many centers with very diverse beliefs limited to permutations of a martyred Galilean?

Re: A Plausible Reading of Mark, Well-Done with a Side of Ra

I see no reason not to believe the movement started from many centers all over the Diaspora, by very diverse beliefs, who all had a different opinion of a martyred Galilean, mythical or historical. And that we are only left with a fraction of the text that once existed Does that include those at th...

Re: 1 Thessalonians 2.13-16, Paul, and the gospel of Matthew

Also, the Gospel writer doesn't have the other very peculiar feature of 1 Thessalonians, which is the apparent surprise and explanation of some people dying.

Re: Richard Carrier slams Ehrman's latest book

Re: Richard Carrier slams Ehrman's latest book

Can you give us a good reason to attack authors you haven't read? Fucking hypocrite.
