You are angry. Does your religion do that to you or did you bring that anger to your religion?  (Sunday May 3 | post #471720)

Why I知 no longer a Christian

Let us speak of Papias. He wrote a five volume work that now survives only in quote from later writers, with you relying on Eusebius from the 4th century. One of the more interesting passages from him survives from two Christian sources and one Islamic source. Papias' claim, according to these three writers, was that John died at the hands of his fellow Jews in Jerusalem before its fall and the destruction of the 2nd temple in 70 AD. This claim would make sense in light of Mark 10, written anonymously in the 70's, but it is very problematic for John authoring the 4th gospel, which usually is dated to the 90's and which has no author ascribed to it in the two earliest complete copies. Thoughts, Gumby?  (Sunday May 3 | post #471719)

It was a vast Ruskies, mob, and Castro conspiracy. I have it on a reliable source. Can't disclose the details, though, national security and all. And don't get me started on alien anal probing.  (Sunday May 3 | post #471718)

Look up the phrase "synoptic problem", Jac. In the case of the synoptic gospels, you are, in essence, reading three very disparate editions of Mark. Odd, eh?  (Sunday May 3 | post #471717)

In the case of Jesus, who would those reliable sources be, Jac?  (Sunday May 3 | post #471716)

Good to see you, Hip. A bottle of Head n' Shoulders relieved that problem with my conundrum. That whole doppelganger thing has proved a tad more troublesome.  (Apr 19, 2015 | post #471185)
