SV: [ANE-2] Re: Book review of the Talpiot tomb- a must read
- First of all, thanks to all for the informative responses, esp. those
that deal with Socrates.
Concerning "eyewitnesses" (i.e. to be verified historicity) I would
like to throw in the strange déjà vu passage in MK 15.7 et par, the
initial point of any Christology that aims at the Pneuma Christi -
the trial of the two 'bar Abba'*) probably already the ultimate point
of safe return in the quest of the historical Jesus.
*)a rare priestly-prophetic epithet, cf. Taan 23a.
This would, along the way, explain the priesthood of James the
brother of Jesus as an overseer (mbq) of a local community - without
the known genealogical leapfrogs.

Emne: [ANE-2] Re: life after death stuff
Alan Segal's "Life After Death" deals with all the issues that have been
discussed in this thread of another name. If someone has already
mentioned Segal I apologize for repeating it- but if his work has been
mentioned list folk really should give it a read.
