Oh yes, I've heard of that. It's exactly what I thought you meant by your cheeseburger reference (except the part about Tel Aviv - I don't know anything about that).

So now we have the interpretation running something like "Do not seethe (crucify) a kid (Christ) in its mother's (Mary's) milk (Word/Christ)." I don't think that actually makes any sense. Did I miss something?
As for Bethlehem, the Bible does not say that Christ withheld knowledge of his birthplace. It only says that there was a dispute amongst some Jews about it.
John 7:40 Many of the people therefore, when they heard this saying, said, Of a truth this is the Prophet. 41 Others said, This is the Christ. But some said, Shall Christ come out of Galilee? 42 Hath not the scripture said, That Christ cometh of the seed of David, and out of the town of Bethlehem, where David was? 43 So there was a division among the people because of him.It seems like you are entirely fascinated with finding highly speculative and unprovable things "hidden" in the Bible. You are and I are like opposites in this regard. I spent fifteen years searching for the things that can be solidly established on a foundation of many witnesses. I have always had a strong distaste for speculation about the Bible because folks have been making up crap for 2000 years and a lot of it is pretty stinky, and it confuses everyone and encourages them to do the same.
