Re: The Last 12 verses of Mark

Couldn't a sceptic claim this of many other parts of scripture?






Yes, but in this case perhaps it was Peter writing with Mark later on adding to what Mark knew was an incomplete ending.

Re: The Last 12 verses of Mark

A couple early writings that cite segments of Mark 16:9-20 are Tatian's Diatessaron and Irenaeus' Against Heresies. Yes Tatian was around 170AD and also there was Tertullian around 215AD & Hippolitus around 235AD & he wrote twice. So apparently there were earlier manuscripts including this section.

Re: The Last 12 verses of Mark

Yet, I am still not convinced of John Burgon's theory. I doubt that the copyist was even aware of verses 9 to 20. I think someone added those verses to the text much later. 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?

Re: The Last 12 verses of Mark

[ color=#FFFFFF] I have been reading a book regarding the last twelve verses of the Gospel of Mark. It is not unusual today to find them left out of many bibles or relegated to a footnote. There are letters from several church fathers in the 2nd & third centuries referencing these verses so earlier ...

Re: The Tree of.....

[verseblock] What about this statement, is it true as well? “The tree of Revival must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of GOD’s faithful. It is it’s natural manure.” We talk about Revival, sing about Revival, preach about Revival, pray for Revival - all good things to be sure but what ...

Re: Paul and Jesus

People who think they find problematic differences between Jesus and Paul need to learn to think more clearly about things they read. Here is a link to my chart demonstrating that Paul and Jesus taught everything of significance the same. http://www.matthew713.com/notes/files/J ... HHhqlIEVWs Thank...

Paul and Jesus

I believe Paul and Luke who wrote a lot about him but there are some apparent differences between his teachings and certain of Jesus teachings. One of the apparent differences is about Pastors and teachers. In John 10.16 Jesus is called the "sole pastor" and Matt 23.8-10 "sole teacher." The greek wo...

Re: "Being in the form (morphe) of God" Philippians 2:6

[ color=#BF0000] The actions and teachings of Jesus reflected and imaged the Father. Jesus exegetes the Father through his own life that was seen and observed. That was what I think Jesus'was meaning by seeing the Fsther by seeing Jesus[/color]. What do you think Jesus meant when he said that and ho...

Re: "Being in the form (morphe) of God" Philippians 2:6

When Jesus said "Whoever has seen me has seen the Father.”

That is talking about ‘form' imo.




To me it sounds like "the essence" of God , since God is Spirit & Jesus was a man I don't connect how it refers to outward appearance.

Re: "Being in the form (morphe) of God" Philippians 2:6

According to the Online Bible Program's Greek lexicon, the Greek word μορφη (usually translated as "form") refers to: 1) the form by which a person or thing strikes the vision 2) external appearance I think it's clear it could be about "the outer" or "the inner" so then this is about context and my...
