Well maybe, or was it the TV producers?
i've just seem Penelope Wilton c3rd June 1946 therefore 61, portraid as the mother of Jesus. Now most scriptures say jesus was 33 when he died on the cross, therefore his mother was 28 when she gave virgin birth. hardly the only just become a woman as we are told..<yikes>
I think a younger woman should have been found to portray Mary, or am I wrong. Please enlighten me.
