I have to get to know the characters in i really like i said i. I'd studied the scripture. I and as much as told about the woman or the men around her. And as you as you delve into that and try to imagine what might have been you know. I don't change what happened. But i tried to look for what. Why like motivation or how it might have come about and that helps me. Sometimes i pull from people in experiences that are contemporary. That i have the belter dealt with myself to kind of put into. They might have felt that way here. You know sometimes you get an epiphany like that. Where oh i'm going through this trial. Maybe this is how sound so felt during their trial. I it's not the same trial but the feeling could be the same. Yes yes and from the point of view of the actual. I assume that you read hebrew. So how do you do it in terms of the really ancient stuff. You've been a few times to israel. Is that gavin. Juries once wentz.
