Re: [John_Lit] Spiritual language and anonymity: was "James' ossuary

Nicodemus. It seems that John could have left his name
out, without signifcant effect to the story."
I agree with you. My suggestion was not meant to be
exhaustive. An author can have various reasons for
using or not using names.
