I always thought Judas was badly treated by history and religion. He was a victim of circumstance. The whole crucifixion was going to go ahead whatever - it was preordained. Judas was a part of that Divine plan. He had no choice but to betray JC. No wonder he felt so bad afterwards.

It's like JC being born in a stable - it had to happen. God could have (presumably) arranged for his son to be born in relative luxury, but instead he arranged for Joseph and Mary to be turned away. Think what a different story it would have been if they'd knocked on the first inn and been told: "Hey, come on in! You can have the best room in the house and my wife is the local midwife!" :lol:

1. When was Christ crucified? We don't know! :roll:
Mark 15:25 "And it was the third hour and they crucified him."
John 19:14-15 "And it was the preparation of the Passover, and about the sixth hour; and he saith unto the Jews, Behold your king…Shall I crucify your king?"

2. Because to indicate to the Romans which one was Jesus ie; he looked the same as everyone else.

3. "Its a disgrace. Bloody hippys." Yep! Jesus didn't have long hair.

PS Pip you could join capt, Sjoerd and me and change you signature. How about "Irish and prod." :lol: :lol: :lol:

Have I started a wave of signatures?

Also, I know Sjeord is Dutch, I was making sure my knowledge was correct. It was!

Also,Pooh, we do know when he was crucified. It's a bit confusing, but basically John considered Passover to start in the original Hebrew traditional time, and Mark said that Passover started at dawn. Therefore, Pip was right.

No, I didn't, but I guessed you were interested in History when you got all of the answers right. Most Dutch people I know wouldn't get a few of the ones about English history.

:lol: :lol: :lol: Total bollux! :lol: :lol: :lol:

19:13 When Pilate heard these words, he brought Jesus outside... 14 Now it was the day of Preparation for the Passover; and it was about noon.

15:25 It was nine o'clock in the morning when they crucified him.

Sorry, I think I didn't say that right.
John uses the Old Jewish way of counting time, which starts at a different time to the Greek, which Mark used.

The Last Supper (according to Capt "Sensible")

JC: For lo, this 'ere bread is my body. I've cut it up into little bits, so pass it around, will you? :D
Matthew: Here we are JC, two bits left over.
JC: What you on about, Matty? There should only be one bit left. :shock:
Matthew: A miracle! Just like the loaves and the fishes! :shock:
JC: No it wasn't you plonker. Who isn't 'ere then? :twisted:
Matthew: It's Mark.
JC: Well for my sake where is he? Didn't he know I'd hired this restaurant for 7:00? :?
Matthew: I think what it is, oh master, is that he's got his watch set on Greek time, which is 3 hours behind.
JC: What the hell for? We live in bloody Israel. Is he bonkers, or what? :roll: Oh well, crack open the beer and let's have a game of poker til he comes. :roll:
Matthew: But master, it's not fair coz you always win. :(

don't take offence to pooh captain. He's having his fun.

I remember the recent chat on religion on the census form and our form just arrived.
Forgot we had one coming up too.
The missus is putting Gryfindor as her religion but i'm undecided for my one.
