contemporary sources for Jesus is a big issue. I work backwards from John to Mark then I have to project the data. The number of years between Jesus and Mark is about the same as between Mark and John. When one sees how much myth is added from Mark to John what you get when you work backwards from Mark sheds the rest of the mythology. At this point you are left with his teaching and the effect his teaching had on his direct disciples.
I still find that human character to be quite compelling. But that's me.
I'm quite allright with the oldest versions of Luke, Mark and Matthew.(Up to a point ofcourse)Nothing to wicked.
John to me is pure theological debate. In which the various opinions of the church-fathers can be recognised.
But the reckoning is interesting (going biblical in speechpattern here ;p)
They usually advise people to start with John to give the stories of what might have been reports to an authority about what was going on in the province, a different spin.
They even decided what age christ had to be!

Rome was afraid of those rebels be they Yudahite, Celtic or Germanic. All three got the worst treatment and propaganda.

Sorry, I can't find that word (unsurity) in the dictionary.

Swap places??? You still believe that a God will swat you down for heresy??

Poor fellow.

St. Paul says Jesus was to be a blood/human sacrifice to expiate the sins of man which we acquired from Adam and Eve as 'Original Sin"
Well if we want to reduce him to a god (they keep trying), it would be BAAL and his MarihAnat. A son Jebus. Anat conquering Moth-Dead, three days and resurrected.(The old version also does not mention nights. Note to SZ)
And we see all this dualisme (not it the torah) form Avestans.
Angels and devils personified.
Well the origin of Aramaic can be found in that old Iranian world, as well as Baal and Anat turned into ishtart and then Cybele.

He created the earth??? Ohh, wait, You mean he was God??? That protocol that came decades after he passed, and came from the Catholic Church (the most evil enterprise the earth has ever seen).

I think Paul had a psychotic break on the way to Damascus.

I think the fact that he was not accepted by most Christians of his own day is very telling. He did not become popular till his version of Christianity usurped the real thing.

Vision = Hallucination.

This could occur through what Freud called 'conversion hysteria'. Paul likely was carrying a lot of guilt for his persecution of the Christians then conversion hysteria would explain his initial symptoms.

That would fit with what little information we have about his conversion. He certainly did not have schizophrenia. Actually he seemed narcissistic to some extent both before and after conversion.

Lazy sob.
Hebrew word for circle/disk is chuwg (used to describe the earth).
Hebrew word for ball/sphere = kadur or kadoor
As in Isaiah 22:18.
We have been over this before.
Did you also not mention Isaiah 29:3 when you went over this before? You see, there was no ancient Hebrew word which exclusively meant sphere. I could have just allowed your post to pass and not comment, but that would have been the lazy way to proceed, and that could make me sob.

And who took the term lacustrine (adjective) from lacustrian (PN) first in his mouth:KAB
It simply signifies lakes, usually found on alluvial soil. Often the combination lacustrian-alluvian soil is found.
You threw me with "lacrustian", but wonder of wonders, you managed to find a true "comrade" in the Russians. I'm still curious how you found that misspelled version in that voluminous and somewhat varietal volume you provided.

You have no idea what is correct. You are forever trapped in you perverted world view. Buried alive.

It is not hard and does not hurt at all.
