Written while listening to Pink Floyd Holland is supposed to be tolerant and open-minded. There is every reason to boycott Holland till the censorship of economic science by the directorate of the Dutch Central Planning Bureau CPB is resolved. All nations have their problems. It might be overly dramatic to point to the problems in Dutch society to score the overall point that the Dutch have a rather closed mind. The assassination of politician professor Pim Fortuyn in was by a single? The assassination of film director Theo van Gogh in was by a single? If Holland really was tolerant and open-minded, then, with all its resources of education, media and internet, would it really not be able to resolve all such issues? Alongside the censorship at CPB we thus see the closed Dutch mind also in other cases. Perhaps we are merely discussing human nature.
Marcion and the Gospels
Gospel according to John Origin of the canonical Gospels The dominant view today is that Mark is the first Gospel, with Matthew and Luke borrowing passages both from that Gospel and from at least one other common source, lost to history, termed by scholars ‘ Q ‘ from German: This view is known as the ” Two-Source Hypothesis “. John was written last and shares little with the synoptic gospels. The general consensus among biblical scholars is that all four canonical Gospels were originally written in Greek , the lingua franca of the Roman Orient.
Dating Estimates for the dates when the canonical Gospel accounts were written vary significantly; and the evidence for any of the dates is scanty.
The “synoptic problem” is the question of the specific literary relationship among the three synoptic gospels—that is, the question as to the source or sources upon which each synoptic gospel depended when it was written.
Dating Early Christian Gospels by Andrew Bernhard A remarkable number of ancient gospels not included in the New Testament have been recovered during the past two centuries. In evaluating these gospels, scholars have come to astonishingly different conclusions about when they were written. Some scholars have assigned many of the newly recovered gospels to the first century of the Christian movement. Although there has been such vigorous debate about the dates of gospel origins, it may be that exact dates are not necessary for understanding the place of early gospels in the emergence of Christianity.
Indeed, I will argue, they are counterproductive. Early gospels cannot and should not be dated to a specific year or decade. Dates of gospel origins cannot be assessed with such a high degree of precision because the gospels stem from a sparsely documented period in distant history. Dating gospels is a largely arbitrary exercise that obscures the fact that all early gospels, canonical and non-canonical alike, are essentially the same kind of writings.
Early Christian Gospels The texts under consideration in this essay have two defining characteristics. First, they are gospels.
Marcion and the Gospels
All of the canonical gospels were originally written in Greek, even though Jesus spoke Aramaic. More over, other than what are claimed to be paraphrasing, no meaningful quoting of our canonical gospels occurred until Irenaeus’ Against Heresies c. So the best that can be said is that the canonal Gospels existed in some form no later then CE.
Apr 05, · P52 was found in Egypt, meaning that by ca. AD, John’s Gospel was around long enough to have reached Egypt, which makes sense understanding the consensus dating of about AD, and of course, John being the latest Gospel, the others all predate 90 AD (again, in line with the consensus you’re unfamiliar with).
The Gospel of John is a sophisticated deceit, much worked on by a gaggle of fraudsters. But when you tug at the seams the whole fabric of invention unravels. A Rich Fantasy According to the fairy tale, the apostle John lived a remarkable life. At what must have been a very tender age he fell in first with John the Baptist and, soon after, with Jesus himself. Taking his new charge seriously, John re-settled Mary in Ephesus and here faced-down a challenge from the local high priest over a poisoned cup.
John became the most active of the apostles, next to Peter, organizing the early church in Palestine and throughout Asia Minor. Uniquely in the history of the Roman judicial system, John survived immersion in burning oil. He seems to have died peacefully at his retirement home in Ephesus.
The Art of Detachment
Blomberg, The Case for Christ 26 Because of the lack of original texts, it has been very difficult to date the canonical gospels as to when they were written or even when they first emerge in the historical record, as these two dates may differ. According to this scholarship, the gospels must have been written after the devastation because they refer to it. However, conservative believers maintain the early dates and assert that the destruction of the temple and Judea mentioned in the gospels constitutes “prophecy,” demonstrating Jesus’s divine powers.
The substantiation for this early, first-century range of dates, both conservative and liberal, is internal only, as there is no external evidence, whether historical or archaeological, for the existence of any gospels at that time.
Marcion’s gospel with regard to Luke, the value of Lukeand the other Synoptic Gospels and the entire gospel manuscript tradition (including Codex Bezae, which is core to Klinghardt’s reconstruction), based on Harnack, are qualified as.
That is the propostion and argument of Joseph B Tyson, Markus Vinzent, or Matthias Klinghardt, and possibly others Tyson has been influenced by John Knox who proposed that in the s he wrote Marcion and the New Testament, , and someone else had outline in a few decades earlier. I have edited the passage that prompted your post-rant – I don’t know if Carrier has acknowledged the propositions of Joseph B Tyson, Markus Vinzent, or Matthias Klinghardt, that some or all of the Gospels were written after a proposed Marcionite ‘canon’.
Editions du Zebre, Tyson, Marcion and Luke-Acts: University of South Carolina Press, It seems to be an extremely thorough study. As an isagogic work, the Antitheses served to guide readers to a Marcionite interpretation of the text. Particularly important is the investigation of the impact of Marcion’s Antitheses and argumenta on the reception of his text: Biblical scholar Adolf von Harnack accepted this claim in his definitive text on Marcion: The Gospel of an Alien God Jefford The First NT:
Marcion and the dating of the synoptic gospels
In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content: Since the times of Theodor Zahn and Adolf von Harnack and up to very recently, one had to base one’s reading of Marcion’s gospel on the cloze that these two scholars had produced in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Roth his revised and enlarged Ph. What makes the latter work stand out from the others is both the traditional trajectory of the Zahn-Harnack “reconstruction” of Marcion’s gospel in the form of a “fill-in-the-blank text” and the assumption that this text was Marcion’s abbreviation and re-working of Luke.
The dating of the so-called Barnabas is still debated, but it is clear that the text is a pseudonymous writing of the 2nd century. This paper is less concerned with dating that with the question of what kind of soteriology is being taught.
Roth, on ‘Marcion and the Dating of the Synoptic Gospels’ ‘He is the truer friend who by his censure heals me, than the one who by flattery anoints my head’ Aug. What I have written at the start of my comments on Paul Foster’s review is even more true for the discussion below. Dieter Roth was so fair to send me his review even prior to its publication.
I did not want to correct things then, as I believe in more learning experience, when pros and cons are discussed in the public, so that understandings and misunderstandings and both will occur on the writer as on the reviewer’s side will allow the discussion to move on and to share the route to a deeper understanding. Hence, before I seriously engage with this review here, let me again, express my gratitude and appreciation for Roth’s reading and reviewing the monograph.
It is so good to see people delving deeply into one’s own thoughts, and it is sometimes helpfully shocking to see, how badly one has expressed one’s thoughts, so that readers have been misled to think, what they believe they read in one’s text. Reviewing and being reviewed is one of the master tasks of our scholarship. Roth to write a few guest entries which engage with my ‘Marcion and the Dating of the Synoptic Gospels’. In order to let the reader of my blog see the arguments, so please visit the blog here.
As time permits, I’d like to engage with these posts here and also with the published version of Dieter’s review in JTS As in the first posting on the Larry Hurtado blog, Dieter T.
The closed Dutch mind: on Jesus too
The first three gospels are Matthew, Mark and Luke. No in-depth study is needed to notice these three documents share a lot of common information figure shows these relationships. That means that out of the verses in Matthew, about close to half contain information also found in Mark.

It is true that where at least one of them comments on a passage it is generally possible to determine with a reasonable degree of accuracy whether or not the passage possibly with variants not currently seen in Lk is present in Mcg. Of course, an omission on such grounds is only supportable if we already know that Mcg was created by Marcion editing canonical Lk, and the evidence for this cannot be found in the opinions of those who regarded Marcion as a heretic.
Hence, before determining what Marcion may or may not have done, it is important to know as much as possible regarding the content of Mcg itself, from descriptions of WHAT the content was, while ignoring any opinions as to WHY it came to be that way. This article seeks to establish the extent to which Marcion’s Christology influenced the formation of his gospel canon, the Euaggelion.
Marcion’s Christology, as seen in statements preserved in Irenaeus, Tertullian and Epiphanius, has features that can be described as both docetic and modalist. These christological beliefs effect Marcion’s redaction of the Pauline epistles and his omission of material from Luke’s Gospel. In particular the omission of the birth narratives and notices relating to the humanity of Jesus suggest the appropriateness of Tertullian’s slogan:
Marcion’s Gospel: A Bibliography
The above are referenced by MK. As for the minor agreements, Goodacre has a strong point insisting on the principal independence of Matthew and Luke according to the 2DH. This excludes the evasive solution that, although basically independent from one another, Luke knew and used Matthew in certain instances. Methodologically, it is not permissible to develop a theory on a certain assumption and then abandon this very assumption in order to get rid of some left over problems the theory could not sufficiently explain.
More weight, certainly, than Kloppenborg would concede:

Muslim Single If you describe a place to me and I claim you haven’t been there and you knew about it from other sources, it is up to me to prove you wrong. Likewise, I could say that Muhammad’s description of Jerusalem in the hadiths was not from a dream or night journey, but from something someone told him. It is up to me to prove he was relying on hearsay if I make such an allegation. What on earth are you babling about?
Reread what i wrote. Since the Pool of Bethesda is mentioned the text have to be 1st century. He could have used texts mentioning the Pool of Bethesda therfor your argument is weak. I only gave a theory that if this pool was destroyed by Romans in 70CE and the Gospel of John mentioned the Pool that this is not valid evidence to say the Gospel predated 70CE because the author could have used a text that predates 70CE. Show me sources that state the 5 porches were built by Hadrian.
He built a roadway along the dam and converted what was left to a pagan temple. P , John may have known more about Jerusalem than previously thought – too much, in reality, for Christian apologetics to handle, even though this fact of John’s accuracy would certainly bolster the case that the gospels represent “reliable history. In other words, John’s gospel must have been written sometime after CE.
