Rolling the bones...

I guess you gotta have faith.

-- If you took the entire population of Jerusalem at the time," says Dr. Taber, "and put it in a stadium, and asked everyone named Jesus to stand up, you'd have about 2,700 men.

Then you'd ask only those with a father named Joseph and a mother named Mary to remain standing. And then those with a brother named Yose and a brother named James.

Statistically, you end up with one person.

More likely, you would end up with .4 of a person. It is statistics, you know.

Interesting thought for an Arab - putting them all in the one stadium.
