My word, Kate, where do you come up with these obscure facts? Do you really have them at the tips of your tantilizing nails, ready to deploy with such devastating effect when an argument hangs in the balance? Or do you have access to some secret book of knowledge? Please don't hold out on us! One question, though: are you relying on Scripture when you say that Jesus and the disciples were Jewish, or on some other source? And if you are relying on Scripture, do you see any inconsistency in saying that others should not rely on it for information concerning the circumstances of Jesus' execution?
