First, thanks to George for all the references. Second, I do have a problem with some of the
methods of late-dating Luke-Acts. It doesn't seem unreasonable to assume that the gospel
was written first, as it seems to be referenced in the prologue of Acts, so the date of Acts
would seem to provide a terminus in that regard. The biggest problem I have with dating
Acts after the mid-60's is the fact that it never mentions Paul's martyrdom. I would think that
such a momentous event would be the ideal wrap-up to such a story, and would provide the
author with a nice occasion to sermonize a bit on the apostles' faithfulness, the status of the
Christian movement as the apostles were passing off the scene, and all that. We have
nothing even remotely along those lines; the book just ends abruptly with Paul living in
Rome and doing his thing. This suggests to me that it was written while Paul was still living.
But that's just me. I hope this isn't too off-topic from the main question about the long ending
of Mark, I just wanted to chime in on this one point.

Subject: [textualcriticism] Gethsemane
Could someone tell me what language Gethsemane is. I thought it was Latin, but I checked several references and there is some contradiction.
