Damnit Freed. I wish you hadn't posted that picture. It's hard to be mean and condescending to a lady who looks like a nice person. :P

Sorry, didn't mean to throw the spotlight on you so soon. I misunderstood your comment.
But to throw coals on the fire, Mark first is important because Matthew, Luke and John are based on Mark according to current thinking.


I think you mis-spoke in including "John" in that. The "synoptic" Gospels are Mark Matthew and Luke. John is a horse of a different nature.


Nope. There is new scholarship that concludes that John also drew on Mark. He just didn't copy word for word like the other two.
Stop doubting and beleive Milo. Then everything will make sense.

I stand corrected. Will need to investigate that a bit further. Any links appreciated!
Sorry for my mistake,

LOL!! Gee, wish I'd posted it sooner!!
Ok, does that mean you wont be mean to me anymore....I hope, I hope, I hope?
Too much to ask for?
To avoid deception, Christianity instructs people to study the Bible and believe what God says. Religion requires belief in what man says God says. When people without discernment, submit to men who are naturally prone to error, they are easily deceived

Well, I'm sorry that you haven't noticed that I have, in fact, tried to be a kinder, gentler Frog lately. But, I will reach a little deeper if you wish.
No promises tho'!

By the way, did anyone ever tell you that you look a lot like Robin Meade?

No one ever did, but I see the resemblance.

freed- not that you probably don't know this already, but behind his gruff exterior, Froggie has a heart of gold.
