      Not sure what you mean by "this ... same reasoning", Paul. Josephus
      didn't blame the destruction of Jerusalem on the death of James,
      though I believe Origen said he did. (The idea among some Christians
      was that it was God's reprisal for the execution of Jesus, but that the
      time of reprisal had been put off as long as James was alive.)

      The problem with finishing this sentence in any way whatsoever is that
      there's really nothing that can be called "THE synoptic version".
