program on spear of Jesus (cf. 19.34). Some intersting tid bits were
- merchants sold relics so it would help the consumers get into heaven faster
- if an object touched the spear, they recieve some of it's special powers.
- At one time, pilgrims would go to Prague to see it, as it was only taken out once a year.
- Hitler owned the spear, along with other relics, so Indiana Jones was not that far off.
