Re: COLD CASE CHRISTIANITY

I went on this site before, and think it might [might] have useful information. However, when discussing the Luke 2:3 apparent contradiction in dates of Jesus' birth, it gave the same rehashed explanations from sites such as catholic.com (which the exact same text was used by at least two other site...

Re: Birth of Jesus and Archaeology

https://www.jstor.org/stable/642500?seq=1#page_scan_tab_contents An article published in a scholarly database accessible via my campus library. I think it does justice to the matter, and basically reaffirms the idea that there was no contradiction, and that we don't even know enough of the era to k...

Re: Birth of Jesus and Archaeology

This is a Christian blog that shuts down the idea that the "before" translation isn't good, but only as a small point, and doesn't seem to offer up any scholarly/archaeological sources on it, which again, are what I am really looking for: https://www.psephizo.com/biblical-studies/did-luke-...

Re: Birth of Jesus and Archaeology

I have another source here:
http://crossexamined.org/does-luke-have-the-date-of-the-nativity-wrong/
This one offers up a more thorough analysis, and though I don't have explicit reason to doubt it, I'm not sure about it's claims, and am tempted to look for more sources.

Birth of Jesus and Archaeology

Luke's gospel and Matthew's offer up an apparent contradiction on the dates of Jesus' birth. (from what we know, Quirinius was governor almost a decade after Herod died, thus creating a problem due to what is said by many about the archaeology. It wouldn't be a problem if Herod and Quirinius were ar...

Ah.. nevermind then.
As for the username, it comes from the miracle performed in 2 Kings 6:1-7.

Re: Perported Roots of Christianity

Took bbyrd009's advice; I should have done a google search before asking for answers. I found a few good sites, and as noted by PaulSacramento the differences are pretty large. Not only that, many of the modern basis of it's religion don't seem as ancient as the wikipedia article would imply (which ...

Perported Roots of Christianity

As a believer going into a subject dominated by people who adamantly assert there is no God, I always desire to know an answer to any question presented before me about why I believe there is a god. While anecdotal evidence is not hard to come by, it isn't great for logical discussions where the val...

Re: Please Introduce Yourself Here

Hey, I am not willing to disclose my actual name but am willing to give up my current position as a chemistry major in college. Just curious, since most of these posts seem rather old, is there anyone out there? I am looking for a doctrinal question that I feel requires an answer. Since this site ha...
