1. "Jesus was crucified during the critical feast of Passover (mistakenly called the Feast of Unleavened Bread because they are so close in time to each other)."

Why would Jesus at first refuse the comfort of alcohol, and then later not refuse it? Three considerations: was it alcohol; was it comforting; did he refuse it? "Someone ran, filled a sponge with wine vinegar, put it on a staff, and offered it to Jesus to drink. 'Now leave him alone. Let's see if Elijah comes to take him down,' he said." (Mark ...
