    I got your point a long time ago. It's not as strong a point as you imagine it to be.

    My frustration was not about the ending of Mark 16 (and even in it's shorter form it still heavily implies a resurrection), but about his spurious claim that it was the pagan converts who introduced...

    As far as I can tell it seems to have gone by largely unnoticed by scholars in the field of textual criticism in general. They do not seem to have interacted very much, if at all, with Cresswell. I'm...
