It is thus with regard to the disease called Sacred; it appears to me to be nowise more more sacred than other diseases, but has a natural cause from which it originates like other affections. Men regard its nature and causes as divine from ignorance and wonder, because it is not at all like to other diseases. And this notion of its divinity is kept up by their inability to comprehend it, and the simplicity of the mode by which it is cured, for men are supposedly freed from it by purifications and incantations.


Get it?
This is far closer to a actual quote than anything allegedly said by the fictional jesus. And yet Jenson doesn't get it.
