I'll work on gathering some of the pertinent passages from de Boer's
and Jusino's work and post it as time permits. The gaps you perceive
are I think adequately filled in by de Boer. It will be awhile before
time permits. ... to be continued...

- In her reply to Michael S. Tibbs, Elaine Bessette made the following remark:
<<If this trip to the tomb were not meant to be an attempt to fulfill the
customary anointing carried out by the female 'next of kin' we then have a
new problem in the inconsistency of the previous mention of the substance
being saved for the burial.>>
This implies that it was customary in the Jewish society of that time to
have the female next of kin anoint the body of a man. Is there any evidence
to this kind of custom?
I have a problem with the second part of the statement. Where is it said in
GJohn that the Mary who anointed the feet of Jesus saved a large amount of
aromatic oil for the real burial of Jesus? Am I missing something here?
