Star Wars and the Bible

Friends,

Time for a little textual levity. And no...this is not some plug for Bible code or some other such nonsense. :-) When reading through a portion of text in the original, I happened upon a discovery. There is an individual named Joda (in English) in Jesus' geneology. In the Greek, this is spelled Ioda, but because J's are pronounced like Y's even though it is spelled with an "I", the name is...you guessed it -- Yoda. Now this might not be so interesting was it not for the fact that it is found in chapter 3, verse 26 of...you guessed it -- Luke's gospel. Blessings,

Don
