"Well, you are right that 75 AD is after 70 AD.  But I think that is an important distinction because I claim to demonstrate that almost the entirety of the Gospels are derived from the works of Josephus, not just the events from the war in…"

"Wrong for saying that most of this was written after 70 AD? The only difference between our words and view of this is how it is taken today by most as compared to what many think it was then. My view would point out what hypocrites the Christians…"

Matthew Josephson replied to Matthew Josephson's discussion Bringing about the Christian "end times"
"No, you are wrong.  All of the Gospels must have been written after 75 AD when Josephus published "The Wars of the Jews".  See for example how the "last supper" in the NT is entirely based on the event described by…"

"While many Evangelical fundamentalists would cry and weep while pointing out the truth of your post, Matthew, they would believe it as a fulfilled prophesy. The only correct answer, of course, is that the scriptures talking about it are written…"

"Yes, I agree.  They are already trying to make it a self fulfilling prophecy of the end of the world, just for one example, their denial of climate science, they don't care because the world is going to be destroyed any day now anyway.…"

Thomas Murray replied to Matthew Josephson's discussion Bringing about the Christian "end times"
"That is fear I have since I dunno when. When Christians feel their word are ignored and the predicted event does not occurs, they will make sure their self prophecy becomes a reality."

Matthew Josephson replied to Matthew Josephson's discussion Bringing about the Christian "end times"
"Of course there are no Gods, why are you even discussing something so silly?  The point is that I demonstrate the Gospels to be Greek tragedies and satires of the works of Josephus.  It was all a big joke by the Greeks.  Proving that…"

Michael Penn replied to Matthew Josephson's discussion Bringing about the Christian "end times"
"You may be correct but be reminded that there was no god to "send" anyone. Very often people get wound up in other beliefs while holding a preconceived belief. I keep it simple by knowing: 1. There are no gods. 2. Bible writings that seem…"

"> So, who "sits in the temple of god, showing himself as god." A preacher could have a field day There is only one man that sits in the temple, showing himself as god and exalts himself above all the other pagan gods…"

"It is number 2.  If I demonstrate, as I claim, that every passage of the Gospels and the book of Revelation is based on a passage from Josephus, then those books must have been written after the publication of the passages they are based on (75…"

"So, who "sits in the temple of god, showing himself as god." A preacher could have a field day with the above scriptures and preach many different sermons, not necessarily  all related. Like the Buybull itself, this is a many…"

Matthew Josephson replied to Matthew Josephson's discussion Bringing about the Christian "end times"
"Yes.  Exactly.  This is how Christianity ends, by revealing that Jesus is the sinful man.  That is why I demonstrate in 500 examples that each passage of the Gospels and the book of Revelation is a form of Greek tragedy and a satire…"

"Whoever added (2:3-4) to the bible didn't see what I see in it--the oend of xianity. Whoever added (2:6-12) was on an early form of LSD."
