    I'm not sure where to put this. I'm hoping for an interesting discussion about the miracle-working Galilean "men of action" from Mishnaic and Talmudic sources (hope I got that right), for example Honi the Circle-Maker, and Shimon Bar Yochai, and the literary similarities to some of the Gospel stories about the miracles of Jesus.

    I hope @RabbiO, @Geoffrey, @Thomas, @badger and anyone else who is into this kind of text-level comparison will enjoy the topic and contribute.

    Here's the article which got me interested (I'll supply a link once I'm not on a cellphone).

    Here's the link
    Click on the 'Jerusalem Perspective' image box near the bottom to download the article free. It's not as long as it looks, as the final third or more is taken up by a list of citations
