    There were no Christians in 71 BCE.

      At no point have I stated such to the contrary.

        So what was the point of your comment:

        the cross (which originally would have been an image of the might of the Romans).

            I believe I made my point clear at the time of the comment. If you're aware of the crucifixions along the Appian Way, you would understand the context of an alleged revolt leader being crucified in Judea in the 1st Cent. AD. If you have nothing left but games, fin.

                As far as I am aware, no one would have used an image of the cross prior to Christianity, because it was deeply shameful; it was too shameful to even describe. Even Christianity doesn't use the cross because Jesus died on one, but because he defeated it by his resurrection.

                      What you believe you may have done is not borne out by what you wrote. I have still yet to discover where you perceived a connection with what you wrote here concerning different interpretations of symbols:

                      I have no idea why you consider the mass crucifixions of the rebels in that uprising was "originally an image of the might of the Romans". My emphasis.

                            EGGzackly --- it would be like somebody wearing a little casting of an electric chair - an emblem of death --- except that Jesus' triumph over death makes wearing the Cross a symbol of hope, victory, life everlasting...
