I, too, am on Team Fiction.

But from a canon perspective — if Jesus is a twin, then God didn't give his only son to save humanity.

Just one of 'em.

Wait!  Huh?  Are you sure we aren't talking about Elvis...

Is there anything that says they were identical twins?

No. Don't you know John 3:16? That totally squashed that rumor.

I don't know what you're talking about. It's bad enough they made John the Baptist his cousin to make Jesus even more legit.

The Johannine Comma.

Never heard that one before. John is messed up more ways than one.

Hi Piney

Yes indeed, it seems like religious refinement as more people were learning to read and write so at some point they knew questions would arise so had to present and argue many issues in refining themselves into one of the leading cults globally.

And so we ended up with a religion designed by committee.

Something for everybody, at some cost in coherence and consistency.

The only surviving complete example, a Coptic translation, is late for sure. But that Greek original, of which we have scraps from the recycling bin? That could easily be "Gospel Era," late First-early Second Century, Luke-Acts-John vintage, imo.

Of course that whole first century, 30ish to 130ish, is a dark age.

Anyway, I'm still working on whether or not there really was a Jesus; it may be a while before I get around to whether he had a twin :P

Whatever, but Didymus Thomas is Greek and Aramaic for 'twin' :

I know that. I had to do the whole Nag Hammadi thingy. Gnostic writings were all a word salad and tripe to me.

With a bunch of power hungry pricks involved
