"saint Peter"


Recommended Posts

So the pastard was saying this morning some junk about Peter going to Rome, being crucified upside down, and other various bits of myth that showed his transformation from "Average Pete" to "Super Pete". Facepalms. Anyways, I could have sworn at one point he claimed that REAL HISTORIANS had corroborates him being crucified and whatever other nonsense. I'm pretty sure I already know the answer to this, but, is there any outside corroborating info AT ALL about the life of this Peter tool? I'm under the impression the early church took this character from the early writings and wrote even more stories/myths about him to try to historicize te whole Jesus drama. Just curious if anyone at all outside the cult wrote anything reliable about "Rocky". Thx

Most of it comes from early church historical documents AFTER peter was crucified, they also state he flew across Rome... Yea literaly FLEW. Most of the works are found in extra curricular Apocrypha and we know how reliable that is.

No more or less reliable than the canonical shit.

I actually disagree on this one, the cannon was decided based on author verification, which is more reliable than the Apocrypha but at the same time if that's how they were basing their picks then there should be books in the bible that aren't. Which just goes to show it was MEN picking what books went into the bible, not GOD. Theologians and Apologist say that the council of Nicaea "discovered" what books were viable but if this were the case, based on their criteria, there are missing books. Of course you must also contend with the fact the documents change as well through history through manipulation but not everything in the bible is false, i mean to discredit the entire bible would mean you must discredit all historical documents but you don't haft to discredit the entire thing to realize it isnt infallible.

 

I also add the authors of the gospels aren't verified but i think the writings of Paul are.

To say that, Peter being crucified upside is a historical fact, is claiming alot more then what the preacher really wants to claim. Considering the sources for a second, are totally extra biblical and one comes from the second pope ever in Christian history, scepticism should abound particularly in protestant innerrantist circles.

So they got one bit right, out of a apocryphal text and one guys testimony. I would hardly call that a undisputed historical fact.

nothing about the canon was even discussed at Nicaea, as far as I'm aware.

Yeah that was one of the first things I remeber ever looking into too about christianity, and no dice on that claim.

You guys all have it wrong.

 

Saint Peter was actually a rabbit. Jesus appointed him as the first pope of the Christian church so he wouldn't say anything. People always get the message messed up but rabbits are pure.

 

That's also why we have an easter bunny.

If Peter was actually crucified upside-down, wouldn't that make him the Antichrist? GONZ9729CustomImage1539775.gif

Out of 13 NT books attributed to him, 7 are generally agreed upon by scholars to be written by Paul, while the majority of the remainder are considered to clearly be forgeries. In general, I think it is more difficult to nail down the authorship of NT books which were not attributed to Paul. There was probably less to go on in the second to third centuries when the cannon was largely firming up than there is today in terms of what was "authentic", since scholarly techniques in use today were lacking then, and the selection process was rife with competing agendas involving the battle for what won out as orthodox.

Pos, I roll my eyes and fidget and all that SO FUCKING HARD every week. I mean, I've gotten better at concealing it to a degree. But damn. If someone was staring at me the whole service, they'd figure out PDQ I'm not a beeleebah.

I've always wondered what would happen if Christ and the Antichrist meet up. Would it be like mixing matter with anti-matter?

 

That would be fun.

Well, how much do you want me to say on all the things people didn't write?

 

Starting as earlier as the first century CE, and quite possibly before, people started to not write about the glorious Saint Peter...

I guess it's sort of like asking about all of the written accounts of when Stalin visited the Florida Keys.

 

(He never did, did he?)

Doesn't matter. He went surfing there. No one wrote about it.
