Re: "James the Just": What is the origin of the phrase?

I don't think that "James the Just" (Jacob the Righteous One) was invented as a nick name until the 2nd century CE (the 101-200 range). This was Hegesippus' invention. To me, H. clearly created his account of James' death from several sources, not all of which I am convinced were stories a...

Re: Vespasian As A Member Of The Piso Conspiracy?

Charles Wilson,

Looks like yakovzutolmai is really going after your crown as the greatest spinner of Roman conspiracy theories of all time.

Re: Where do I find in the Tosefta Chullin a story of Jacob the Christian heretic?

Neusner translated the place as "the camp of Sepphoris."

What was "camp" supposed to signify, though?

Refugee camp? Itinerant traders' encampment outside of town? An encampment for the local military unit? A street market?

Re: NO persecutions? I'm struggling with this, really

Gotta watch them "Leninists, Trotskists & Stalinists." :!: Yes, they sure did oppress and execute one another! However, I don't recall there being any "you're not a *real* Russian" talk. In the NT, Paul does not accuse his "superabundant" opponents of being false Je...

Re: Where do I find in the Tosefta Chullin a story of Jacob the Christian heretic?

FWIW, I happen to own a copy of Neusner's translation of the Tosefta. Division 5 (Qodoshim = Order of Holy Things), tractate Shehitat Hullin) starts in vol II, pg 1371). There are actually 2 accounts of interest there. The first is the story about a Jacob of Kefar Sama (sect. 2:22-23, pg. 1380) who ...

Re: Kings Of Osrhoene; Why Ptolemy Menneus Was Philip Epiphanes, And Christian Origins

The most important takeaway is that Philip I Epiphanes Philadelphus was the same as Ptolemy Menneus and "Ma'nu II" of Osrhoene. Important consequences are that Ptolemy's son Philippion would therefore be Philip II Philoromaios, and that this person is also identified with Tiridates II of ...

Re: “Did Mark Bottom Out?” Or “A Titanic Failure”

Similar for Michael Turton's work. I read every page of it ages ago when I was on here before. Couldn't get enough of it. But again, I found myself challenged to get it sometimes. I couldn't always see the brackets and connections he presented. That's me, though. I haven't seen Michael Turton for a...
