Carl, you seem to be saying that it MIGHT not have been the case that 600
soilders were present when Jesus was arrested. Do you have any REASON to
think that in this passage? Was there something particular about the
'cohort' during this time that any author tells us about to think that 600
soilders were not present in John 18?
It would seem, however, that whatever the exact
> number, John's account assumes a sizable body of troops coming along with
> the Jewish authorities and Judas.
TTD: If I go by what your saying, 'sizable body' could mean almost
anything from 100, 300, or 600; in other words, we can't be sure. Is this
what you are saying?

Waiting for your response.

"Simon Peter said to them, 'Let Mary leave us, for women are not worthy of
life,' Jesus said, 'I myself shall make her male, so that she too may
become a living spirit resembling male. For every woman who will make
herself male will enter the kingdom of Heaven."
