(Robert Penn Warren, Wilderness....)

He thought : I am a Jew from Bavaria .

He was standing there , he thought , in Virginia , in the thickening dusk , in a costly greatcoat that had belonged_to another Jew .

That other Jew , a young_man too , had left that greatcoat behind , in a rich house , and marched away .

What had that man , that other young Jew , felt as he stood in the twilight and heard other men , far_away , singing together ?

(Irving Stone, The Agony and the Ecstasy....)

They took Jesus 's body , then , and wrapped it in winding-clothes with the spices ; that is how the Jews prepare a body for burial .
