Great stuff, especially the joyous juxtaposition of wisdom- gleaning from ancient master orators with John's Great Adventure with the "girls." Also, some sad and excellent insight on confidence and the quest for power. A lesson we could all learn: a whimpering whispering, short-breathed Jesus would've gone nowhere.
