RE: About the Testimonium Flavium
What purpose do you serve here, tomato?

Because if your purpose is to make Christians look like ignorant, dishonest, and whiny cunts, you're doing a great job. Thumbsup

To make it so that whoever it is I'm arguing with retreats to a "lack of belief". To chase every bad argument to the top of a fence.

There are no early copies. The earliest copy is in Milan, and the passage is in different handwriting, different ink.

STILL WAITING for you to prove your CLAIM about "most scholars" and the interpolation ?

Then you're failing even at that, badly.

How many different BS reasons have you given for why you're here now? I can count at least 4 you've given to me. Drinking Beverage

It's almost as if...you're dishonest! Gasp

[13] Louis Feldman (ISBN 90-04-08554-8 pages 55–57) states that the authenticity of the Josephus passage on James has been "almost universally acknowledged".

"Modern scholarship has largely acknowledged the authenticity of the reference in Book 20, Chapter 9, 1 of the Antiquities to "the brother of Jesus, who was called Christ, whose name was James" [13] and considers it as having the highest level of authenticity among the references of Josephus to Christianity.[14][1][2][15][16][17]
"

And the variety of sources cited in the wiki quote. .

You don't understand the difference between opinion and evidence or opinion and fact. Gasp

He's wrong.
It's not proof of your claim.

You sure that's the direction you're chasing? 'Cause like the rest of us don't see it that way. More like a dog barking at the moon.
