Does that strike anyone else as odd? I thought I had recalled that
Luke/Acts said that the ripples emanated from Jerusalem. But even
more, saying that the message began in Galilee and spread throughout
Judea makes it sound like Galilee is in Judea. Also, John's baptism
is not connected with Jesus, but with an announcement. And I'm not
sure I understand the "spreading throughout Judea" thing. The Gospels
don't seem to spend much time on that-- or what am I forgetting?
