  • Re: Video course by a top NT scholar for $44 -- maybe lower! (could be up to you)

    [quote user="JoshInRI"] He isn't one of those nuts that used colored marbles from the Jesus Seminar is he? I like/value the Gospel of John and found it transformational before and after I was saved. Is he conservative in his leanings? [/quote] FWIW, I'm not "one of those nuts that used colored marbles," but I am liberal. I am not conservative in my

  • Re: You MUST bid on Witherington video course! *

    [quote user="David Paul"] [quote user="David A Egolf"] This thread needs to stay near the top of the active threads until Friday noon. Anyone who intends to vote on this CP needs to do it now! Bid your best price now and don't wait until Thursday. Everyone who is balking is keeping the price higher than it needs to be. A surge at the end loses potential

  • Re: Just a few more bids and Witherington will hit $80!

    [quote user="Steve"] [quote user="Bill Coley"] Am I missing something? [/quote] Yes, you are missing something. Way too many assumptions. Costs, bidders, withdrawals, projected revenue, etc. Logos has built everything in. It's now at $50 .. and could go lower with more bids. Are you in? [/quote] Yes, I'm in, but I don't see where anything I posted previously

  • Re: Just a few more bids and Witherington will hit $80!

    [quote user="Denise"]The two David's points are correct ... Logos sets the quoted 'price' at the lowest breakeven price. So for example, if all the $80 bidders simply withdrew their bids (plus everyone else above that), then the quoted price would drop precipitously (though not be 'over the line').[/quote] Denise, I don't see how this is mathematically

  • Re: Wonderful forum bug (with address change)

    FWIW, I've noticed that post counts don't update in real time for as long as I have visited these forums, which is now about four or five years. It's either built into the forum design, or something the Logos webmasters haven't got around to fixing.

    [quote user="Denise"] Well, don't be fooled by 'us conservatives'. There was a time in the 1800s when 'conservative' meant you studied your Bible. These days, it's which books and commentaries you can safely read (hint, hint ... not Ehrman). Yes, you have to check your publishing history (you DO publish, don't you?), what presuppositions underlie your

    [quote user="David Paul"] Add to this the situation I have addressed in other threads--that YHWH has stated explicitly that He has deliberately introduced disinformation and misinformation into the mix--and it becomes hideously easy to draw false conclusions about important concerns.
