a verse like it...

Post by manfred »

DONE....
When Allah made little boys
He made them out string
He found he had a little bit too much
So he left a little thing.
When Allah made little girls
He made them out of lace
He found he didn’t have enough
So he left a little space.

Add to the Gospel of Mark 16. :lol:
Never will the Jews or the Christians be satisfied with thee unless thou follow their form of religion.
Say: "The Guidance of Allah,-that is the (only) Guidance."

Christians have known for centuries that Mark 16:9–20 might not have originally been part of Mark’s Gospel.

No, that is not true.

We have 2 manuscripts from about 400 that do not have that part (it got lost) and we also have some 1600 that do have that passage, including earlier ones. (actually two passages, the end of one story and the start of another.)
Irenaeus quotes the passage in around 180 AD, proving that is was NOT a later addition. Other writers too, Justin the Martyr and Tatian knew the verses earlier in the second century as well.

What is true that there are some recent NT lecturers suggest that the last bit of the gospel of Mark was added later. That is their view. I grant that the original ending of Mark MAY have been lost. As without the ending it is clearly incomplete, someone close to Mark may re-created it as best as he could. But that is speculation. We know that the passage was already knowns by a number of early Christian writers, so it cannot have been a late addition. The reason why we have 4 gospels is to create a BALANCED picture of the beliefs of the early church. They are like witness statement, and of course they do not agree on all details, in the same way as witnesses in court who describe the same event will always vary somewhat.

And why do you keep posting stuff like that? Because you cannot discuss anything rationally?
This is the joking around section, not the "write nonsense about Christian texts" part.

So come on SAM, put something funny....
