a couple of things
You may have noticed that I have been less verbose of late. An effort to
take a little mini vacation.
Anyway, I wanted to comment on two remarks we all received today.
First, my friend Tom Simms suggests that we need to redate the writings of
the NT to prior to the deaths of the leading apostles. With all due
Second, Stevan, in his typically brilliant style suggests that Luke was a
woman. Again, with all due respect, NOT!
C'mon- i'm a wacko cause i think that Thomas and Q are related, but someone
suggests that, in the first century a woman had the hutzpah to pen a
document circulated to a bunch of churches? What evidence is there, what
little shred, what tiny sherd, what miniscule fact would lead one to such a
conclusion? Luke is, to be sure, concerned for the welfare of women, and
far more egalitarian than the crude, sorry, and yes, disgusting disciples of
Paul who penned those trashy pastorals. But a woman? PLEEAAAASSSSSE!
