Re: The Last 12 verses of Mark

Paidion,

You wrote:
Are you sure they were quoting from Mark 16: 9-20? How do you know that it was not the other way around? That the author of Mark 16:9-20 quoted those parts that are found elsewhere?
Couldn't a sceptic claim this of many other parts of scripture?

Re: The Last 12 verses of Mark

Hi Paidion, Thanks for the link at bible-researcher.com. I enjoyed the info. and noticed that Scrivener seemed to think highly of John Burgon. I had also noticed, as Scrivener indicated, that Burgon seemed to be enjoying himself while he, IMO, demolished the arguments of the critics. He always showe...

Re: The Last 12 verses of Mark

Hi Paidion, I wish I had taken more notes as I read through Burgon's arguments but I was able to find what he had to say without too much trouble. Here's what he wrote about the vacant space: To say that in the Vatican Codex (B), which is unquestionably the oldest we possess, S. Mark's Gospel ends a...

Hi paidion, You wrote: I have many BibIe translations in my online Bible program and not one of them omit those 12 verses. Please tell me which translations of which you are aware, that omit them.

The book I have been reading is by by John Burgon of Oxford, written about 150 years ago. Burgon thoroughly refutes every argume...

Re: Steve is a racist

Steve, Great response! Regarding racism, there are some interesting facts. Statistics inform us that, surprisingly, over the last four years about twice as many whites have been shot by police compared to blacks, in the USA.

Re: Covenant Error

Hi In2joy, You wrote: tell me what is meant by a covenant of law and a covenant of grace (that is found nowhere in scripture). Seems to me that the scriptures clearly establish that there have been two covenants: Hebrews 8:7 7. For if that first covenant had been faultless, there would have been no ...
