. 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.

A greater than Jonah is here

What is the relationship between the preaching of Jonah and putting a lamp on a lamp stand? The prophet Jonah in classical Jewish thought calls to mind repentance.

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

One of the charges brought by the high priest, Caiaphas, and his retinue, against Jesus was that he had encouraged the people not to pay taxes to Rome (Lk. 23:2).

Intro. To Synoptic Gospels

As in the Old Testament narratives, the synoptic Gospels used laconic expressions of time and place in story openings. For example one reads about Elijah, �And he arose and went to Zarephath� (1 Kings 17:10), and likewise about Jesus that �he arose�and went to a desert place� (Mark 1:35). The prodigal son �arose and went� to his father (Luke 15:20), and Mary �arose�and went�to a city of Judah� (Luke 1:39).
