What parallels? Which experts? What sources? I'm not saying that it is logically impossible that the Gospel of Mark was written after The War of the Jews and utilized it as a source. It is unlikely as far as the consensus dates of both documents hold. I am saying that Atwill's claimed parallels are bogus, as is the dependent hypothesis that Josephus wrote Mark for the Flavians. Go ahead, tell me where the experts I cite agree with Atwill in either regard.
