Kent Davis BS: what about Glen Beck? (132* d) RE: BS: what about Glen Beck? 04 Jul 11


Greg F.,

You said, yesterday at 8:37 a.m., "In Jesus' time, there WERE no 'Italians'." You said, at 10:20 this morning, "the OED cites the first use of the word "Italian" in the 16th Century - just a bit later than the crucifixion".

I quoted a document that is unquestionably many centuries older than the 16th century, a document that uses the Greek equivalent of the the word "Italian" to describe a cohort in Caesarea.

Instead of saying "oops", you ask me what word is used in the Aramaic. Why? Acts was originally written in Greek, not Aramaic.

Nevertheless, if you prefer the term "Roman", you may substitute it. I only used the term in making the point that, contrary to the implication of DrugCrazed on July 2, Glenn Beck does not blame the Jews exclusively for the crucifixion of Jesus but rather believes that EVERYONE had a hand in it, Jew and Gentile, priest and soldier, street mob and aristocrat, king and even disciple.      

As the links in my previous posts show, Glenn Beck is a friend of Israel and a foe of those who deny the Holocaust and of those who deny Israel's right to exist. If you can't spare the minutes to look at the previous links, you might wish to spend a few seconds reading this http://www.jta.org/news/article/2011/06/28/3088339/beck-to-address-knesset-committee
