Dr. James Tabor on Paul

This new interview with Dr. James Tabor by Derek from MythVision is interesting on a number of counts. One point is Tabor argues the Philippian Christ Hymn is NOT arguing Jesus was a pre-existent angelic being, but rather a human. Second, he takes mythicists to task because Paul says Jesus was “born of a woman,” meaning he was human, like when the gospels say John the Baptist was born of a woman. For years Carrier has tried to argue “born of a woman” in Paul is metaphorical. An all around interesting video, check it out here:

For my thoughts on the Philippian hymn related to an analysis of one school of interpretation of form/morphe in Aristotle, see here:
