The Bible And Christianity – The Historical Origins A rational, secular, historical perspective on the history of Christianity and its scripture An essay by Scott Bidstrup “If the truth is that ugly — which it is — then we do have to be careful about the way that we tell the truth. But to somehow say that telling the truth should be avoided because people may respond badly to the truth seems bizarre to me.
Paul’s Catholic Church The Bible is a lot of things to a lot of people, but to Christians, especially, it is a source of inspiration and a guide to daily living.
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.

The Synoptic Problem The synoptic problem is intrinsic to all study of the Gospels, especially the first three. The word “synoptic” comes from two Greek words, syn and opsesthai, meaning, “to see together. The content and purpose of John’s Gospel are sufficiently distinct to put it in a class by itself. It is not one of the so-called Synoptic Gospels. All four of the Gospels are selective accounts of the life and work of Jesus Christ, whose “career was destined to change the history of the world more profoundly than that of any other single individual who ever lived.
If the revelation of the Gospels were to be removed, the Old Testament would be an enigma, and the remainder of the New Testament would never have been written. These two parts of the Bible, comprising sixty-two of its sixty-six Books, derive their value from the four which we call the Gospels. There is internal evidence within the individual Gospels themselves that the writers used source materials as they wrote.
The most obvious example of this is the Old Testament passages to which each one referred directly or indirectly.
But I Don’t Know What to Say…
Though words often fail us when friends or family face a terminal illness, they’re often all we have left. Words fail most of us when someone we love is dying.

He then went to London, where, supported by his family, he learned to draw from copies of Greek statues. Soon afterwards he painted a Cupid and Psyche which, with the help of John Opie and Henry Fuseli , qualified him for entry to the Royal Academy Schools. While studying at the Academy Etty stayed in the home of the portraitist Sir Thomas Lawrence , but apparently received little instruction. In he succeeded in having two of his paintings accepted for exhibition.

The Bible is a lot of things to a lot of people, but to Christians, especially, it is a source of inspiration and a guide to daily living.. To others, the Bible is a historical document and a source of controversy. To others still, the Bible is a self-contradictory mish-mash of arcane rules and proscriptions, mostly relevant to long-dead cultures in far away places.
Is Ablarc still posting? I hope nothing unfortunate happened. Lrfox- Anyone tried PM-ing him? It could be a terrible nuisance and drive him further away like a nagging, over-bearing girlfriend, but I miss his posts as well. He just started posting again over at WNY so hopefully he will be back here soon as well. NY gets everything first. Not only is it well designed and executed, it was built in the early- to mid s, long before there was a proven market for anything like this. He may have driven Westy from here too.
I hope they both come back. Might have heard it a thousand times before but I never get sick of it.

Biblical criticism The modern era of critical scholarship on the works opened with K. Bretschneider’s work on the topic of Johannine authorship. Bretschneider cited an apologetic character in John, indicating a later date of composition. Scholars such as Wellhausen, Wendt, and Spitta have argued that the fourth gospel is a Grundschrift or a, “..
Baur — proposed that John was solely a work of synthesis of thesis-antithesis according to the Hegelian model—synthesis between the thesis of Judeo-Christianity represented by Peter and the antithesis of Gentile Christianity represented by Paul. He also cited in the epistles a synthesis with the opposing dualist forces of Gnosticism. As such, he assigned a date of to the Gospel.
