Religion at the Opera

So, I was at the opera last night, seeing Don Giovanni. And while I was there, Adam and I started talking about Jesus. I brought up Psalm 22, then got out my Bible and gave it to him to read, pointing out that it is remarkably similar to the crucifixion on Jesus. (Gee, I wonder why?)

Daniel, one of our friends, saw and said, "So, you're one of those Sola Scripture types."

Me: "Yep."

Daniel: "You know, only 400 years ago, we would be burning each other at the stake."

Me: "Ah, the good old days."

(For those who don't know Adam or Daniel, Adam is a secular Jew and Daniel is a practicing Catholic. That may explain the joke for some of you - and why I was bringing out Psalm 22.)
