KING OF JEWS CRUCIFIED BY MARC ARCHIPPUS
Jesus(33) labelled by,Pilate,the Roman prefect
as the 'King of the Jews' was crucified here
Crowds watched the execution,including the mother
of Jesus,some relatives and his Nazarene followers.
As the week is Passover ,his body had to be taken from
the cross before tomorrow' s Shabat holy day.
After the body was taken for burial,I obtained an
exclusive interview with Simon Peter(30),deputy leader
of the Nazarene sect.This fisherman from Capernaum
said he had been with Jesus for the past three years.
He disclosed these Nazarenes,from the northern province,
who he describe as 'disciples',would be staying put in
the city for a short time,to re-group and await further
revelations that would take their revolution to its next stage
in Judea and elsewhere.
Other groups in Judea have made similar exaggerated claims
to me in the past,all of which have come to nothing!
