The answer to this is in Mathew 3:15. The Jewish law allows a person to be a priest at the age of 30 and he should be washed in the water. Jesus was a King and High Priest and therefore the Word cannot be fulfilled when Jesus was only 12. If the argument is about his earthly father's business then he was not too young. But the context here is definitely ...

Indisputable? I agree with Frank Luke's comment, further adding that using such a term does technically make the question unanswerable (because, as Frank noted, people dispute things that ought not be). Probable Testimony Circa 60-70 A.D. The earliest probable reference to Luke's gospel is by the apostle Paul himself in 1 Tim 5:18, circa mid 60's A.D. ...

In my (limited) understanding, the key arguments put forward for the order Mark > Luke > Matthew (i.e., for "Matthean posteriority") are: the literary observation that Matthew appears to collect, collate, and develop traditions found in Luke (e.g., what appears in Matt 5-7 in the "Sermon on the Mount" is found at various points, and in a more "primitive" ...

Lots of scholars look for alternatives to the traditional Mark-Q priority, but in my view without success. Dennis R. MacDonald wrote a well-researched thesis in Two Shipwrecked Gospels that Luke knew not only Mark, but also Matthew. That would have caused an even bigger stir among critical scholars than his book, The Homeric Epics and the Gospel of Mark, but ...

You have asked about the order being Mark > Luke > Matthew. My answer below addresses the order of Luke being written before even Mark. This arrangement is called Lukan Priority. It is very much a minority opinion. As you know, the prevailing theory in New Testament studies is Markan Priority. It has the most support among scholars. A minority position ...

The passage in Luke 17 appears to be parallel to Matthew 24. If these passages are parallel, then the birds of prey refer to events evident in the heavens that point to judgment on earth. Like the lightning that flashes in the sky, these phenomena in the heavens "illuminate" the Day of the Lord when the spiritually dead are judged on earth. That is, birds of ...

it could mean that for some the real death will come with the coming of God's Kingdom. if those who actualy heard this verse are actually still alive today,... the verse says: "you will taste death, when the Kingdom comes". the verse does not actualy imply that some will live as long as the kingdom doesnt come, but that they will 'taste death' only when ...

Jesus is quoting one of Aesops fables, The Fisherman and his Flute (or Pipe, or bagpipe, or many other variants of the title). Here is one (of many) translated version: The Fisherman Piping (Townsend, 1887) A fisherman skilled in music took his flute and his nets to the seashore. Standing on a projecting rock, he played several tunes in the hope that the ...
