. How Many Jews Followed Jesus

David Bivin, editor of JerusalemPerspective.com, discusses the Greek word for “tens of thousands” found in Acts 21:20 and explains why most English versions have decided to render the Greek word as “thousands,” without even a footnote noting that the Greek says “tens of thousands.” Christian exegetes and translators cannot imagine that there were tens of thousands of Jewish followers of Jesus in the city of Jerusalem in the mid-first century A.D.

At the Feet of Rabbi Jesus

While traveling, the first-century rabbi could not easily set up a shop due to the shortness of his stay in any given location.

A Bedouin shepherd boy, Muhammad edh-Dhib the Wolf, was tending his goats in the vicinity of an old ruin known as Khirbet Qumram in the wilderness south-west of Jericho, not far from the Dead Sea shore.

It seems that the episode which lay behind this false charge was an exchange between the chief priests and Jesus a few days earlier in the Temple precincts (Lk. 20:20-26; Mk. 12:13-17; Mt. 22:15-22).
