One of my supporters has very kindly transcribed this video, the ninth of my series for the twelve days of Christmas. I don’t have time to transcribe my videos myself, so anyone willing to volunteer to transcribe one video every week or fortnight would be greatly appreciated! The transcript is very lightly edited at a few points for the purpose of comprehension.
Over the Christmas period, I am posting videos exploring biblical echoes and symmetries in the stories of the nativity in the gospels. In this ninth video I discuss connections between the wise men and the Queen of Sheba. I have more to say about these themes in my book, Echoes of Exodus.
How do you deal with the seemingly contrasted accounts of how Judas dies?
