In my opinion, the Gospels and the Acts of the Apostles do not have their origin in a mythical era and do not include

any myths. Mythological narratives about gods, devils, visions etc. are in fact contemporary literary devices that require interpretation using the tools provided by classical philology. When Jesus says to Peter in Matt. 16:23: “Get behind me Satan”, that is not a myth, it is polemics.

If someone in Rome wanted to criticise the emperor, for example, they never did so directly, because that could have had serious consequences. Instead one told an unsavoury myth about Zeus, father of the gods, and everyone knew that this referred to the emperor.

  4. Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your article seem to
    be running off the screen in Internet explorer.
    I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility
    but I figured I’d post to let you know. The design look great though!
    Hope you get the problem resolved soon. Kudos

  10. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was wondering what all is needed to get set up?
    I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very web smart so I’m not 100% positive.
    Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Many thanks
