Response to We dont know that

The Jews had very strict religious laws, and they were very careful to observe those laws at all times. You couldn't just stone someone for no reason, or because you didn't like what they were saying. One specific law said that you could stone someone for the sin of blasphemy, which is what they intended to do in John 10:33 "We are not stoning you for any of these," replied the Jews, "but for blasphemy, because you, a mere man, claim to be God."

I don't get time off for bad weather, so I'm off crunch numbers, ugh. Talk to you later, Julian...
