  1. So there exist tendentious, agenda-driven stories of someone being born in a place he wasn’t?

    Surely the task of a mainstream Biblical scholar is to take false stories of Jesus being born in Bethlehem and try to work out roughly when Jesus was born, using false birth stories as material?

    And then compare people who doubt your wisdom in doing this to Birthers.

    Which simply shows a lack of irony meters in New Testament research departments.

    1. Cough cough…. point proven….

      You realize that your harping on one particular point shows your ignorance of the entire field, right?
