      What Ted Weeden has to say is provocative but there is a certain
      tunnel-vision involved. He says that he is not aware of any evidence for the
      high regard in which James was held in the Jerusalem community excepting
      GThomas 12/13. What about Josephus? But citing GThomas raises another
      question. GThomas does not presuppose a theology of the cross but proclaims
      the presence of divine wisdom. In 1 Cor., Paul criticizes certain groups of
      people who claimed to possess special wisdom in the name of individual
      followers of Jesus. Whether or not Mark and Luke are followers of Paul, the
      writings bearing their names certainly have been influenced by what each
      understood to the message of Paul.

      Are the (Weedon) opponents in Mark, persons who claimed to possess secret
      special wisdom? Are we to understand the GMark as a ridicule of those who
      claim to have secret wisdom?
