Larry: my own concession to the possibility of a first century translation of
Mark into Latin was a pure hunch, with no evidence whatsoever to support it.
In light of your brilliant post, I would now rate it as probably an
irresponsible hunch. I enjoyed both John's disquisition and your response to
it, and I am inclined to think that you have the better of the argument at
the moment. Like you, I would certainly be interested if anyone else can come
with an argument (or rather evidence) for an earlier use of Latin in the
Christian community of Rome.
