How marvelous! An it-could-have-been background story of Joseph of Arimathea. I like your title, too, and the haughty tone, fitting for your main character.

I like your title! I can just imagine all the attention that had to be paid to their ceremonial rules. I had to smile at “the Arimathean” using the ceremonial washing jars because a peasant brushed up against him. You described this very well. I really appreciate that you show the confusion people felt over the things Jesus did (with Mary Magdalene, the tax collectors, then how the ornamental robes worn by those in authority meant nothing when they were around “this Galilean”). HE truly upset their world. I like your contrast between the “hissing question (and the allusion) ” of the Sanhedrin and the Teacher’s voice “trumpet aloud” (and the allusion). Very nice, thought-provoking, and so well-grounded in Scripture. I like this!
Good tale of a familiar Bible truth.
This take on the Bible story is wonderful. Especailly crazy about the last line. What a creative way to say he changed his mind!!!
