    A propos some recent discussion on the Bible and the NT, this little =
    ditty by Anglican theologian Eric Mascall:

                 HYMN FOR ST. BARTHOLOMEW'S DAY

                        "Was it he beneath the fig-tree?"

                      Beneath a fig-tree once there sat
                          A very guileless Jew.
                      He had the firm conviction that
                         He was Bartholomew.

                       But then the Higher Critics came,
                           With L and M and Q,
                       And if you ask him now his name
                            He hasn't got a clue.

                       So out upon these men of clay,
                           This unbelieving crew!
                       May others treat them just as they
                           Treated Bartholomew!
