      Sure, Jim. Theologoumenon is the historicization of a fictional account
      in order to relay a spiritual truth. In other words, a "white lie." (g)
      It is really not unlike aggadic midrash. Therefore the first option is
      whether or not this is a Johannine invention and interpolation for
      theological purposes.
