  1. From Francis Watson’s paper “A curse of this kind is unusual in the Jesus tradition, at least as directed towards a person (cf. Mk.11.14). The passage might conceivably echo Papias’s unpleasant description of Judas Iscariot’s grossly swollen body”. Oh Oh. Heaven forbid! Speculation. Must disgard this scholarly analysis by Watson. :-)

    Sorry Joel. I am a jerk.

    I do like your comments on Romney though.
