Re: The Last 12 verses of Mark

Steve gave the following as one of the arguments against the gospel of Mark ending at verse 8 in Chapter 16: 3. It would make Mark the only known book in Greek literature to end with the word gar (“because”); I find that argument weak indeed. It is true that the book would then end in γαρ (gar), and...

Re: The Last 12 verses of Mark

Yes, even before your recent post, I found the quote for myself from Irenaeus.

But could it not be that the last 12 verses of Mark, were not written by Mark himself, but were added to his gospel at a very early time?

Re: The Last 12 verses of Mark

So how do you account for 4 or so church fathers quoting parts of Mark 9 -20 in letters around 150 or so years before 300 AD? Which fathers quoted parts of Mark 16: 9-20, and specifically what were the quotes? Are you sure they were quoting from Mark 16: 9-20? How do you know that it was not the ot...

Re: How Julius Caesar changed New Year

I believe you wrote in some place before that you studied a philosophy degree. In your opinion, what is the best book that teaches traditional Logic? Or the one that you used. Actually, I received a B.Sc. degree (Bachelor of Science) with a major in mathematics, and a minor in philosophy. The main ...

Re: How Julius Caesar changed New Year

I am now 82 years old, and am forgetting a lot of things. My source of this information is one of them.
Indeed, until I read your post just now, I had forgotten that I posted that information. So I copied it so that I will have it available.

Sincerely,
Paidion

Re: The Last 12 verses of Mark

Greetings Homer, in the precious name of Jesus! I am sure that the ending of Mark (verses 9 to 20) would not fit into a single column. However, that proves nothing since it is not a great deal larger, and if the copyist left the column blank for the reason John Burgon thinks he did, then the copyist...

Re: The Last 12 verses of Mark

Thank you for your kind remark, Homer.
I have another idea about the blank column which I hope to share later.

Meanwhile you might want to check out the following from the Bible Researcher, especially the words of the great Greek scholar, Bruce Metzger.

Re: The Last 12 verses of Mark

Homer, thank you for persisting with me! I don't know how I could have thought that a new book always started on a new page. I just finished re-examining the first part of Vaticanus. Going from Mathew to Mark, the copyist ends Matthew in the second column and begins Mark in the third column of the s...

Re: The Last 12 verses of Mark

He had much more to say on this but this gives you the idea and with your copy you can see what he was saying.
I see what he is saying, but I think my explanation makes far more sense, and is consistent with the endings of the other gospels as I explained.

Re: The Last 12 verses of Mark

I don't recall whether it was either or both that Burgon said had left blank space for the last twelve verses of Mark which he considered to be evidence the transcriber knew of their existence. Throughout Vaticanus there are normally three columns of text on each page. But at the end of Mark, there...
