That bit of nonsense?

Anyone who believes that will believe anything.

That explains a LOT.

"That bit of nonsense?

No one accepts the PoJ as inerrant, but is is not entirely in inaccurate and no one claims that it was not written in the second century when the practices, customs, and traditions of Judah and the Galilee would have been reflected in it. You are of course free to construct your understanding from what is not said in Scripture, but those of us who are sincere in understanding the meaning and intent of Scripture look the available historical and linguistic records for proper context.

Peace be with you
