Howard Pepper had posted his most recent entry in our dialogue (or, diablog) about John the Baptist. In my last post I had some things to say about the presentation of the Baptist by the Evangelists as compared with Josephus. We're just beginning to dive into that subject now and Howard' post goes further. I'll respond as soon as I'm able.
