Ahhh KC, my friend, please don't underestimate yourself. All of us who wound up as Parents felt that way at some point before hand.
As for talking to a child who is YOUR child? Don't worry just talk to him/her as an adult, you'll be amazed at how quickly they learn.

aramaic roots doesn't mean it was written in aramaic. he may simply have had an aramaic source. all of the gospels have something interesting like this, matthew has some aramaic language choices, mark has some latinised vocab going on. some people think mark was written in rome because of this, others think it was written in galilee for other reasons.

when you study something like this in school, you're at the mercy of your own professor's interpretation. de omnibus dubitandum, innit.

Quote:
Also the topics in Matthew and how the author addresses theological points suggests it is written to link Jesus to the old testament and prove his credentials to Jewish people. It also suggests the writer is Jewish or has a pretty damn good understanding of Jewish tradition and history.
yeah, i got the impression from matthew that he was writing for jews, and is trying to prove (perhaps too strong a word, persuade is maybe more accurate) that jesus was the messiah. something i find very interesting is the stuff in mark that was left out of luke and matthew. there's a line somewhere where jesus says something like "it's not what goes into the mouth that defiles a man but what comes out of it", that's matthew's version, which is taken from mark but with the final clause missing; "with this jesus declared all foods clean".

taken on its own, matthew's version can be interpreted as "you should worry less about dietary laws, and more about speaking kindly and honestly". mark on the other hand is saying you don't need to keep kosher any more, and in that context, matthew is perhaps saying that you do.

of course, none of us are really doing anything other than repeating other peoples ideas, none of us speak greek, we haven't actually read the primary sources

it wasn't bad, compared to pretty much anything else on tv, it just wasn't anywhere near as good as the previous four seasons. the evolution of the characters stalled and fell out of the sky like a brick tied to an anvil tied to an elephant. all that shit with the whiney telepaths bored me.

ty for response, I'm a B5 fan too and loved Seasons 1-4.

Bascailly there was the Jason Ho thing where someone claimed to have $1m in winnings and to have "solved CAP PLO" and hadn't done anything of the sort, if fact would struggle to beat 200NL, and took a few stox members for a lot of money

But more recently it turns out that Stoxtrader had multiple accounts on multiple sites and is also alleged although not proven to have colluded and was forced to resign from stoxpoker. Based on this, Cardrunners (not exactly squeaky clean themselves) decided to kill Stoxpoker deaming it's reputation irretrevable and just take on the coaches they thought were worth it (probably < 5).

ty for replies though, interesting well so far.

Do you think rhombus is more fun to say than Trapezoid?

Is trapezium better than trapezoid ?

What does/could make playing poker for a living so undesirable? Monotony?

You once said something along the lines of usually about the time a player is good enough to play poker for a living, it is about the time he realizes he doesn't want to. ( parrot phrasing from my head so that could be very wrongly re-written )

20pts for every B5 quote you spot from me in the forums. there was a good one in the wolf thread, if you want to read 94 pages to find it ;)

fair enough. i'll read up on that. young guys with money do dumb things, and there are always allegations of collusion.

unreliability of income can be stressful. it also fucks with your social life.

sounds like a me thought.

truth is most professionals didn't ever intend to be professionals, they became them by accident because they were too lazy to get a job.

Mark is thought mainly to have been written in Rome because Papias says it was and that Mark was the secretary of Peter, The little Latin that’s in Mark is Latin that was common to the whole Roman empire. It’s doubtful that anyone from the 20th century on thought it Latin phrases meant that it was written in Rome. No one thinks that Mark was written in Galilee, the rival theory is that it was written in Antioch. Antioch is also the normal location for the writing of Matthew. It’s not really possible to tell whether the “Aramaic” in it is really Aramaic, Hebrew or Syriac (the later two being essentially dialects of Aramaic).

It’s extremely obvious that Matthew was written only for a Christian audience, any Jew whether Sadducee, Essene or Pharisee would have both LOL at it’s scriptural ignorance, misquotes, creating messianic prophecies and been offended by it’s rabid antisemitism. This is also a good example of what happens when people pull things out of their historical context and try to force them into their apologetic molds.

Paul is where all historical study of the gospels should start. He shows himself to be in opposition to the real Apostles and killcrazies both them and Judaism in general. All of the apostles were Torah keeping Jews, Paul was antinomian and this is one of the things that made the apostles hate him and him them. When we read the new testament, which has an antinomian Jesus running around Palestine, breaking the law while simultaneously being popular we know that we’re dealing with gospels written by and for the Greek followers of Paul. The Jesus of the gospels is really Paul. Luke is dumb enough to show this antinomian Jesus in his gospel; but then to show a Torah keeping Peter in his acts of the apostles who needs a “tablecloth” vision making all foods clean long after the death of Jesus.

It’s mainly that there were real Jewish followers of Jesus and the apostles that persuaded me that Jesus was a real person rather than a completely mythological one. It is the conflict between apostolic Jews and Paul’s Greek Christians that the first two centuries of Christian history were really about; though with the second also seeing the birth and conflict of Catholics with more traditional Gnostics. One can’t even understand Paul without looking for the apostolic Christians. To them Jesus was a man born in the normal way. He was the second Moses promised by the latter rather than God. He did not put away the mosaic covenant (which is according to Deuteronomy an “eternal covenant”). Jesus was the perfect son of God, who was the first human to keep perfectly the Torah and be both perfectly pious towards God and righteous to man, with his sacrifice on the cross done to end blood sacrifice rather than to end an eternal covenant. They were vegetarians who practiced it for greater purity rather than to be free from the law. They taught that both Jesus and John the baptist were vegetarians, something that James the just was too and Paul mocks this vegetarianism stating that it’s only for those “weak in faith”.
