comment Should Matthew 27:6-7 Be Taken as a Demonstration of Hypocrisy?
I understand we perceive this as hypocritical--what I'm wondering about is Matthew's intention in including it in his Gospel account. Was he trying to paint the chief priests as being hypocrites?

Does the 153 have any significance in light of gnostic beliefs?

comment Is Luke's “Theophilus” An Actual Person or an Allegorical Person
Thank you for that excellent and thorough response. I had always wondered about "most excellent". I assumed it had some special meaning and wasn't just flattery.

comment Does Paul command the Corinthians to remain unmarried?
I won't post this as an answer but it is wise in evaluating texts of this sort to bear context in mind. It's likely that Paul like other early Christians held the belief that the second coming was going to occur any time. Any earthly attachments, including marriage, would be tying someone to this Earthly life. I can't take credit for this observation but I also cannot recall where I read it--hence I add this as a comment.

comment Was there an eclipse just before Jesus died?
Or perhaps as they so often did, the evangelists weren't really bound by "history" in the sense that we understand it but were speaking metaphorically of the passing of the light from this world.

comment How Is the Date of Composition of the Gospels Estimated?
Well I had some notions about how dating may have been arrived at (e. g. other documents which could be dated mentioning the gospels) but I was wondering what other sorts of techniques may be employed.
