I don't know if you would consider John Chrysostom a scholar (he was a Church Father), but this is what he said about disagreements and inconsistencies in the Gospels in general: What then? Was not one evangelist sufficient to tell all? One indeed was sufficient; but if there be four that write, not at the same times, nor in the same places, neither ...

To assume that it is a fabrication, is an option, however, it is not the only or best option, given the contemporary witnesses to substantiate these claims, given the acceptance of Luke's gospel by those apostles who were there at that time, given the values and ethics of the followers of Jesus. Instead, let's look at some others much more plausible reasons: ...

Έπιστάτης appears in the NT only in Luke (5:5; 8:24, 45; 9:33, 49; 17:13). In case except the last, the word appears on the lips of a disciple. Marshall, in this NIGTC calls the make of the last reference a near disciple (203). Marshall agrees with Oepke’s TDNT article (II, 622f.) that the word is a translation of the Palestinian Aramaic, רַבִּי. Marshall ...

Yes it's a fabrication. This is easy to see when reading Mark's version of the story (Mk 14:47-50). Jesus doesn't reprimand his disciple for wounding the soldier, nor does he heal him. So Luke obviously made it all up, but why? To show that Jesus was a lover of his enemies, and not just another bandit who planned to overthrow Rome and failed. If Jesus ...

The two stories have way too many points of similarity to be different events Interestingly enough Lazarus(Greek) or Eleazar(Hebrew) was most likely Eleazar "Lazarus" ben Boethus. Who's Father was Simon, and who had two sisters, Mary and Martha Matthew 26:6-13 (ESV Strong's) Jesus Anointed at Bethany John 12:1-8 (ESV Strong's) Mary Anoints Jesus at Bethany ...

According to Adam Clarke: Adam Clarke's Commentary on the Bible Adam Clarke, LL.D., F.S.A., (1715-1832) Thou hast said - Συ ειπας, or אתון אמריתון atun amaritun, “Ye have said,” was a common form of expression for Yes. It Is so. “When the Zipporenses inquired whether Rabbi Judas was dead? the son of Kaphra answered, Ye have said,” i.e. He ...

From John passage on this in his First Epistle, I would say you are right. This was at a later date. 6) This is He that came by water and blood, even Jesus Christ; not by water only, but water and blood. And it is the Spirit that beareth witness, because the Spirit is Truth. 7) For there are Three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and ...

To my mind, Mark 1:13-14 and Matt 4:11-12 strongly imply that John was in prison when Jesus returned from the wilderness. If that is the case, then Jesus could not have made a second visit to John. I have thought that maybe Jesus spent a few days after his baptism, and just before his journey into the wilderness, selecting his disciples. The testimony ...

"And God said, Let us make (נַֽעֲשֶׂ֥ה: accomplish H6213) man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth." Genesis 1:26 The authority YHVH has given Yeshua is the authority God ...

Interesting. Was pondering that this am and did Google search. Your post came up first. If you look at the context, the third thing is actually the fourth day. Starting in verse 19, the Pharisees couldn't confront John. Then it says the next day. So according to this the next day was the first day. What happened on the first day is the world became aware ...

Strong's translates the lust verb (ἐπιθυμέω) as "to set the heart upon". Had Jesus stopped with βλέπων (to look upon) or combined it with a form of the verb πειράζω (to be tempted), indicating that the simple act of looking upon a woman or being tempted to keep looking was sin, then you have a dilemma. Yet, James says in chapter 1, verse 15 of his epistle ...

Your alternative explanation seems to be in plain agreement with this passage. Nearly all versions of verse 28 emphasize intention, with the version quoted in the question explicitly using the word intent. We suppose Jesus occupied a body which grew, hurt, bled, suffered, ached, died and perhaps longed for companionship, and so was exposed to a whole ...

Introduction Forgive me if this doesn't necessarily answer your stated question, but I believe it solves the real question of the issue here. There is no debate going on in the crowd. John is simply quoting what the people were saying. But what the people were saying were in no way competing identities. Rather, they were different titles for the same ...
