    I just got notified of part 12……what happened to parts 9 – 11. How do I find an index page if this is not it?

      Updated now. I try to keep this updated as the posts come through. Sometimes real life gets in the way and it’s not always current.

        Thanks – I guess there are other ways to keep up to date. I just don’t know them.

    I don’t know if anyone can help. In an online discussion, after I recommended this page and paying attention to Doherty, all of Doherty’s ideas were dismissed with a single statement: Doherty;s whole thesis is founded that Paul’s Jesus resided in a fleshly sub-lunar realm, which he asserts was a common feature of Middle Platonic thought. This idea is met with a universal “What? Do you know anything about Middle Platonism? It doesn’t say that at all.”

    Has this been addressed and does anyone know of a link or book I can read to understand how to respond to it?
