Digits confirm, mein Führer. In some ways -- while strict Biblical accuracy can theoretically be maintained -- it's pretty much impossible to faithfully recreate the actuality of the Messiah's Earthly ministry. No one here today was there, plain and simple. And even if they were, it's still just one perspective (truthful though it be), and therefore limited for such a broad set of events surrounding Jesus Christ.
Thankfully, the Holy Spirit can step in to cover for our honest efforts at understanding and bring the truth of the Gospel alive in every heart that actually wants to hear. Maybe these directors are simply trying to establish the Jewish cultural idioms etc Anon?
Regardless, we can all be thankful that the world is under a new covenant, and no longer subject to Jewish whims and abuses of God's intentional words, straining out a gnat and swallowing a camel and so forth.
