- Aug 20, 2005In your response this date to Ron Price's suggested equation of Acts 15
= Gal. 2 (i.e. Paul's visits to Jerusalem), I find your
statement most interesting in that you say " ... whereas it is far more
probably that Galation 2 = Acts 11: 27ff." I am most curious about your
use of the word "probable" - upon what basis or bases do you consider it
more "probable"? Perhaps you mean "preferable"? In any event, I do not
see your giving us any reason for your evident preference. In point of
fact, your preference entails many complications, to say the least ...
perhaps even contradictions, as John Knox explored/explained in his
splendid little book, "Chapters In A Life Of Paul." Instead of my
attempting to lay out any precis of his excellent presentation I would
suggest that your might find reading it useful, but in case you have I
would then appreciate your addressing his arguments rather than
Wedderburn as Dr. Knox's presentation is one of the classics on this

mention an important part of this list's protocols) for listers to
identify themselves other than by just name when posting their comments ...?
