[gthomas] Re: Passion of Jesus [and GOT?]
- I'm ending this discussion on thomas list with this post. Clearly most of
this is off topic, as the moderator already noted. If Tom is interested to
discuss these matters further, there's the loisy-l, where everything goes.

I see, Tom. So according to you a resurrected man is not divine?
Resurrection implies no divinity at all? Please keep in mind that Jesus
was resurrected AND ascended up into Heavens. So you think this is not

I recommend you read Ehrman who explains these things quite well.
Also you complain that I'm not offering long enough explainations about
the theories that Loisy formulated. Well, how is it my fault that you
still haven't read the most important biblical scholar of the XX century?
Here I am, providing you summaries of his theories, but instead of just
going and reading the book for yourself, you're making all these demands.
Perhaps you should show a bit more personal initiative? And the same with
Ehrman. Instead of giving me credit for alerting you to this exciting new

Tom, I'm sorry.
Please try to understand that I'm only trying to bring you up to speed
