  • Re: Bishop's Bull's Defense of the Nicene Creed

    I'm in at $50., which is what far larger commentary sets, admittedly with less Greek and Latin text, have gone for. It's been a while since I read his Defense of the Creed, and in particular I'd like to reread Bull's attack on Calvin's heterodox rejection of Nicene orthodoxy.

  • Re: Logos 4 Original Languages vs BibleWorks 9

    [quote user="tom collinge"] I have both programs because they do different things. When it comes to the original languages, BibleWorks (BW) beats Logos (L4) hands down IMHO. When it comes to speed, BW runs like 2011 Ferrari Enzo and L4 runs like 1972 Ford Pinto. If you are doing any other type of biblical studying, L4 is the way to go. Why? BW was designed

    At less than a dollar each for these solid works, I don't think one could fill their virtual bookshelf with more substantive books at a better price.

  • Re: G.K. Beale -Revelations

    Thanks for both of the responses. My apologies for getting a little too polemical in my response. In any case I hold the author to have been the Beloved Disciple, a disciple of Jesus.

    [quote user="Francis"] 1) I have read extensively on authorship issues and came up with these conclusions: The New Testament apparently cannot have been written by anyone we know because for each and every book the legitimacy of ascribing its stated or traditional authorship is contested. Hence, the gospel sayings need to be sifted to find the historical

    [quote user="Eric Weiss"] So, then, who was the disciple whom Jesus loved? Was he the author of the Gospel of John, as tradition has the beloved disciple being (though James Charlesworth argues for the beloved disciple being Thomas)? I.e., was "John the Elder" "the disciple whom Jesus loved"? [/quote] I hold that John the Elder was the disciple whom

    [quote user="George Somsel"] I think the enigmatic John the Elder was the author of the gospel and epistles. It was he who was at Ephesus. The confusion arose from considering John the apostle to be the author of Revelation (which the book seems to indicate but which I find incredible). [/quote] Yes, I think he wrote them too.

  • Re: G.K. Beale -Revelations

    [quote user="Donnie Hale"] Another question: Have you read Kenneth Gentry's book, "Before Jerusalem Fell", which makes the case for Revelation having been written before AD 70 (which would allow for it to have been written by the apostle if he in fact died before AD 70). He interacts with the Irenaeus comment, but I don't recall if he touches on Justin

    [quote user="George Somsel"] There is the obvious fact that in Mk 10 BOTH James and John come to Jesus asking for preference in the Kingdom. Jesus asks whether they can drink the cup which he must drink and be baptized with the baptism which he is to receive indicating his death. Jesus then states that THEY indeed with do so. Frequently mention is made
