Its not really the same..... people TORTURED him. With cancer patients, we are trying to cure them, not hurt/kill them.
SkinWalker - I think I misread your post... but are you saying the Gospel writers don't give us their names? If you are saying the Old Testament writers, I'm guessing it would be the Jewish Leaders.... and by putting their name down, they may be taking the attention away from God.
Of course, thats just what I think, as it doesn't say that anywhere.
