Hello Richard, and thank you very much for this information. I am
unfamiliar with this article, and was unaware of its existence. I
did manage to find a brief reference to the paper in Raymond Brown's
_Death of the Messiah_, Vol. 2, pg. 916, n. 12. Brown refers the
reader to a German book by R. Pesche called _Markus_, but I do not
read German. I would, of course, be very interested in any additional
information on the characters Simon, or his sons.
Thank you again,
Calgary, AB, Canada
