This was about the touchy – feely factor of Jesus Christ. In reality, in The Bible there are multiple descriptions of favored disciples jockeying for position – literally: who gets to sit beside him at the dinner table. There are descriptions of favored disciples literally leaning into his chest. They touched each other. Although this is not that strange in itself, prior to having read about it in The Bible I had managed to not learn this despite 12 years of juvenile religious education followed by over a decade of church attendance. Funny how life is.
