Ohio Exopolitics(Mar 17, 2013): James Deardorff on 'Talmud Jmmanuel' - Part 3

Professor Jim Deardorff  has done 20 years  analysis of the Talmud of Jmmanuel (TJ),showing, largely through comparison with the Gospel of Matthew,that the TJ was the source for that gospel.The TJ informs us precisely which Matthean verses are genuine,which are partly genuine, and which are pure invention.In over 100 comparisons of parallel passages, the arguments pointing to Matthean dependence upon the TJ are seen to be difficult to reverse, and in all other instances the differences between the two are also consistent with TJ genuineness. Tests for TJ genuineness are indirect because its original Aramaic scrolls were destroyed due to their heresies, and only the German translation survived.From the TJ one sees that 19th-century scholars erred in assuming that Mark came before Matthew.
