Especially the Jewish people from Africa that have imigrated to Israel.

Sammy converted to Judaism late in life. There are lots of Blacks who are Jewish and who live in the United States. My cousins who are black are of Jewish descent and very proud of their heritage.

It may have been written as a refutation to another earlier Acts of Pilate, which was a pagan compostion which put Xtianity in a poor light.

You also quoted "Gamaliel" from a document called the Archko Library, a 19th century forgery.


I was just quoting what I ran across..if I knew anything about it I would have commented.
