comment When was Jesus's body 'broken'?
Great answer - I agree (after quickly checking my UBS), and it seems to confirm the "interpretive gloss" statement made in the IB.

comment How does John use the Feast of Dedication in John 10?
After a bit more digging, most people who say Ezekiel 34 was a lesson assigned on the Feast of Dedication (that is most people who reference their sources!) refer to Aileen Guilding's 1960 book "The Fourth Gospel and Jewish worship". Unfortunately, without a copy on hand (and no good libraries near by), I am unable to go any further and find out what she bases her claim on.

comment How does John use the Feast of Dedication in John 10?
A quick Google search showed up levhashem.org/documents/hanukkah.html (see the third to last paragraph). I wonder if we only know of the tradition because of John 10, or if this is recorded elsewhere?

comment Did the apostles travel with their wives?
As a footnote, while researching this question I came across an interesting statement in a commentary on the passage: "During the lifetime of Jesus the disciples had 'left all' to follow him (Mark 10:28), but apparently this practice had not continued during the time following the resurrection of Jesus."

Thanks Eli for noticing my incorrect reference - I have just corrected it :-)

comment Did Jesus not heal the crippled beggar at the gate Beautiful?
After reading of Jesus' frequency in visiting the temple "I was with you day after day in the temple" (Luke 22:53), and his actions in the temple "the blind and the lame came to him in the temple, and he healed them" (Matthew 21:15), it must have been exceptional circumstances that stopped this man from seeing or being healed by Jesus. I would assume that the man was not healed by Jesus for much the same reason the man blind from birth was healed by Jesus in John 9:3 "that the works of God might be displayed in him", this time by the apostles.
