The Gospels Proves Jesus Never Existed review: Chapter One, part 3
the Gospels by R. G. the position that Jesus never existed.) As an atheist who believes Jesus did exist (as an entirely non divine human being), I reviewing the arguments in this book in order to explain why I disagree.
The first post in the series, with a little more background, is here; all other posts will be linked back to the end of that post as they written. Price has been joining in with the discussion in comments, so, if you have questions for him, collier femme argent 40 cm there a fair chance he be available to answer them.
Price used the NRSV translation of the NT; any Bible quotes are therefore from that version unless stated otherwise. Price is not the same person as Jesus mythicist Robert Price.
One thing about which I assumed I would agree with Price was his collier homme rock list of how he believes Mark to have derived each of his stories. This was the cornerstone of Price theory, the result of over a year of detailed research that he had put into the subject. His claim that Mark had derived his main points from sources such as scripture or Paul letters sounded plausible to me; while I believed (and still do) that there were one or two points in gMark that couldn be explained in this way, I did already believe that at least some of the Markan stories were derived from such sources, and I was entirely open to being convinced that collier homme argent pas cher this was the case for other stories as well. I expected to find Price arguments compelling, or at the very least plausible. In fact, when I first read his book asos collier homme I skimmed over all those parts of the first two chapters, seeing little reason to pick apart parts of his argument with cordon cuir collier homme which collier homme cuir et acier I would surely agree.
The reality, when I did look more closely, didn live up to expectations. I did indeed agree with some of Price claims; for example, the derivation of details of the crucifixion scene from existing scripture (which I known about) and the derivation of the crowd feeding scenes from 2 Kings 4:42 44 (which I hadn known about, but agreed with as soon as Price quoted the passage). There were others that collier homme argent grosse maille I thought were at least plausible (for example, Price believes that the obscure mention collier homme perle de tahiti of a naked man in Mark 14:51 was meant as a reference to Amos 2:16, and I suppose that could be the case). But there were other examples for which Price reasoning seemed much weaker.
In this post, I going collier homme cartier to look at two examples that particularly struck me as poorly evidenced. Since drafting this, I also discussed a third example in the comments on an earlier post, which I think also illustrates the point. Price looks here at two lines in Chapter 1 of gMark. The first is from the calling of Jesus first two apostles; they are, according to the story, both fishermen, and hence Jesus tells them will make you fish for people (v17). After that I will send for many hunters, and they will hunt them down on every mountain and hill and from the crevices of the rocks. He believes that this is intended as a reference to the threatened destruction of Israel (which Mark would, according to Price theory, have recently seen for collier femme le manege a bijoux himself in the Jewish Roman war).
This interpretation, if correct, would mean that the Church has been interpreting the of men quote completely backwards for the past two thousand years; instead of indicating that the apostles were to catch people to save their souls, Mark would in fact have been indicating that they were to catch people to dispatch them to punishment and destruction. That such a radical reversal of the usual interpretation that I reallywanted it to turn out to be correct; just think of all the priests and apologists using that line during the last two millennia without realising that they were, in fact, labelling themselves as agents of destruction. Truth in advertising however, this interpretation did not stand up to examination. Five chapters further on in Mark we get the collier homme argent apostles being sent out collier homme tibetain to preach to others as well as to perform the helpful acts of healing the sick and driving out demons, which are hardly the acts of agents of destruction. Given that context, I think it fair to say that the of men line was meant the way it normally read; it intended to mean that Jesus is sending them out to catch people for positive purposes.
That detail aside does Price belief about the derivation of these verses stand up otherwise Well, his arguments for believing that these verses were derived from the Jeremian passage seem to boil down to:
The Jeremian passage talks, collier femme 3 diamants metaphorically, about fishing and hunting for people.
The chapter in Mark talks metaphorically about fishing for people and also mentions collier homme or maille hunting for Jesus.
The trouble is, nothing else fits. In Jeremiah, the two things are mentioned together as two parts of the same message (searching people out); in collier homme ethnique Mark, the two mentions are nineteen verses apart, with several unrelated stories between them. In Jeremiah, the theme is of God searching people out in order to punish them justly for their sins; in Mark, the mention refers to the apostles searching people out in order to bring them salvation, and the mention refers to them looking for Jesus collier homme plume (surely not a potential target for punishment) because so many people want to speak to him. The very superficial similarities in the mentions of and don extend any further.
Given all that, was the Jeremian passage Mark inspiration here I think about the best we can say is that it possible. It can be entirely ruled out. But it certainly doesn seem like a good fit, and a far more likely explanation would be simply that, because the Jewish scriptures were a huge body collier femme or amazon of writing that covered a great many themes, it possible to find all sorts of coincidental superficial similarities in them, with proximal mentions of and being well within the likely bounds of coincidence.
Of course, absolutely none of that means that the incidents described in either of those verses really happened. Maybe Jesus did say the of men line when calling the fishermen; maybe he thought of it later; maybe someone else thought of it at a later stage of relating the stories as it sounded so good. Maybe the incident with the disciples looking for Jesus after he went out to pray really happened, or maybe it was invented later for some reason we collier femme joaillerie don know about. We can tell. But wealso can conclude from such a tenuous similarity that the verses must have been derived from Jeremiah as part of an allegory. Price logical deductions here are simply too shaky to hold up.
There is, of course, a very obvious reason to suspect that this infamous scene is fictional; it about a man miraculously walking on the water. In a culture with high levels of superstition and credulity for such things. Passed on by word of mouth until decades after the supposed event, giving plenty of time for miracle stories to be added collier homme lion to the original narrative. I all in favour of being open minded, but I really don think I being overly sceptical in coming to the conclusion that collier homme tunisie this particular story was one of the ones invented and added to the narrative only later.
So, in a way it feels rather odd that I debating Price position on this one. I certainly not claiming that this specific story really happened as written, and I even agree with Price explanation of the message Mark is trying to put across in this scene (namely, that the disciples are supposed to recognise Jesus role as a saviour/messiah but fail to do so). But Price argument has so little substance to it that I think it bears examination, not because it contributes anything to the question of whether this bracelet et collier homme passage is fictional or not, but because it does collier femme disney indicate a lack of rigour in his arguments…
