Here's another report from the panel. I think there was some new info in there:

http://www.zap2it.com/blogs/dig_israel_ ... ca-2014-07"As this murder mystery starts to unfold, it uncovers this sort of deep, couple thousand year old mystery," Kring explains. "Within the first two minutes of the episode, you see the birth of the red heifer."
andThe red heifer (Hebrew: פרה אדומה; parah adumah), also known as a red cow, was a sacrifice in the Hebrew Bible, the ashes of which were used for the ritual purification of an ancient Israelite who had come into contact with a corpse.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red_heiferSome Fundamentalist Christians believe that the Second Coming of Jesus Christ cannot occur until the Third Temple is constructed in Jerusalem, which requires the appearance of a red heifer born in Israel.
That makes sense. Were they in Emma's apartment when this happened, or was it just some random place. It was very messy, and it looked like someone had turned it upside down (to find something?)Helen8 wrote:I think she gave him the stone to (a) keep it safe and (b) bring him in on the "conspiracy."
I think he didn't know that the breastplate stone was in Peter's pocket but that he knew exactly what it was when Peter put it on the table and grabbed it and ran.
That is one sad run-on sentence for an editor, but you get my meaning.
I haven't seen I, Claudius... http://www.perno.com/extras/micro/Claudius.htm It explains why they call the clones Joshua - although what else would they call the one they clone to make Jesus come back. If that 's what they are trying to do, though...? They look crazy enough.Helen8 wrote:I think they cloned several Joshes just in case something like "tainting his feet" happened. Rough life for this clone. Isolated his whole life; shot dead in an instant.
This is a stretch: In an episode of I, Claudius, 4 decades ago, Herod Agrippa thinks that he is the Messiah that was prophesized, since he was born the same year as the prophecy stated. Claudius, now emperor, and concerned that Herod, his lifelong friend and confidante, might turn against him, asks a historian(?) about the prophecy and if Herod is, in fact, the one. The historian says that it is not Herod, but someone that the Greeks referred to as Joshua Bar David. Coinkydink?
