Re: Is the second commandment a REAL blasphemy when put immediately after the first commandment?

Why does "Mark" take any effort to point out that "the second is this" ? The second, only the second. In Mcn there was not a such precise distinction between "first" and "second": Thou shalt love the Lord thy God... ... and thy neighbour as thyself. This is a...

Re: The Septuagint: a Roman / Christian fabrication to support the NT

Forgive me if what I say will come across as ignorant or unfounded, but I was under the impression that we have found a few fragments of the Septuagint that have been dated to the first and second centuries before Christ. From a simple Google search, The oldest manuscripts of the Septuagint include...

The Septuagint: a Roman / Christian fabrication to support the NT

We all know the fable about the 70 or 72 translating the Septuagint from Hebrew into Greek in Alexandria around 300 BCE, which naturally is a lie: The Hebrew Bible wasn't created until 275-290 BCE (which Gmirkin has successfully demonstrated) The volumes that we have are each curated and delivered t...

Re: Why the Parable of Good Samaritan is the only link between Marcion and Pilate

Curiosity: Simon Magus was said to be Simon of Samaria. Simon of Cyrene works as the Good Samaritan (afterall, he appears from nothing - from the 'country': from Jericho to Jerusalem? ) as helper of a person tortured by Archons/robbers), only he is not from Samaria, he is from Cyrene. But I remembe...

Re: Why the Parable of Good Samaritan is the only link between Marcion and Pilate

Imagine if Marcion was not only anti-Judaic but essentially told a story about a Samarian (not Samaritan) going against Judeans in particular as well? "Jews" fighting in Roman controlled territory would be nothing but indeed that, Jews fighting among themselves - it would take a lot of int...

Re: The Celestial Messiah in the parables of Enoch

You read what you desire to read. Does Tertullian tell you explicitly where he reads that? This is how it is classified by the book of Roth: Luke 4:16 = Tertullian IV.8.2 CB34C666-7D1C-42A0-B62B-A26CA9F20558.jpeg You have already made a giant step by going from Luke to Ben's - yet you are now addin...

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

The problem with a machine search is of course that it also captures all the other "ands", e.g. in enumerations. On the other hand, the phenomenon is obvious to anyone who takes a look at the LXX. Hence why I took only And and But, those at the beginning of a sentence. It reminds me of li...

Re: The Celestial Messiah in the parables of Enoch

4/ Nazareth Capture d’écran 2022-05-23 à 23.10.19.png In this example, there is no quotation from Marcion. But Tertullian tells us what he reads . One element is interesting: Tertullian indicates that Jesus goes to Nazareth. A detail that is absent in Mark. You read what you desire to read. Does Te...

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

I have gone by 2 texts, looking for case-sensitive And and But. Quick & Dirty, yes - my Hebrew not so good ESV OT: And: 5923 But: 1130 And-But ratio: 5.24 Berean Mark: And: 576 But: 44 And-But ratio: 13.09 13.09 / 5.24 = Mark's And-But ratio is 2.5 times greater than that of the OT Took me 5 mi...

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

Schmidt wrote In this way complexes of several stories were created, which were separated from each other by a mere "καὶ". “καὶ” or the Aramaic correlate became a caesura, a caesura of the most primitive kind. It is possible that such complexes were written down for use in worship, in ord...
