Umm seriously... so why the thanking OF "Silas" at the end of the story?

1Peter 5:12 With the help of Silvanus whom I regard as a faithful brother, I have written to you briefly, encouraging you and testifying that this is the true grace of God. Stand fast in it.

Read it again, Silvanius is obviously crowing about writing about being the 'editor' of the letter..  if Silas is the 'editor' of the letter, then ain't it conceivable that he is the author of the Gospel called "Mark"?


That's nothing but wild conjecture.

Paul - I have given you my arguments..

YOU are trying to arguing against them..


"nothing but wild conjecture." doesn't cut it.

You have to prove why they are "wild conjecture".

Regardless of who wrote it - and the majority opinion is that it was, in fact, Peter, assisted by Silvanus; the letter was accepted at a very early stage of canon development by all the churches as genuine and inspired Scripture. There is nothing there which conflicts with either Gospel or Pauline theology, and much which is both inspirational and uniquely valuable in the letter.

( Note: I am not arguing here that Peter wrote both letters. There is some dispute over the authorship of 2 Peter, which is nevertheless a valuable part of Scripture. )

I'd tend toward agreeing with you, Paul; however, one look at the history of the formation of the NT canon would suggest that, by the mid second -early third centuries, there was some doubt on the matter.
I'm not relegating the letter on that issue, though - it, too, forms a valuable part of the NT Canon.
