Does the context suggest whether the goal and Jesus were regulation
size? If not, would it still be considered an efficacious dunking? Or, do we
just assume since our goals and dunkees are precisely regulated, their's must
have been also, in order that all things be done decently and in order?
Ooo, do you suppose it was a Slllaaam Dunk?
or would first century Jews have done a Shalooom Dunk?
I wonder what their concept of an 'Around the World' might have been?
A word is not a crystal, transparent and unchanging;
it is the skin of living thought and changes from day
to day as does the air around us. - Oliver Wendell Holmes
