That's a new one on me, and I suspect on most all of the group.

Actually, Paul seems to indicate that much of his upbringing took place in his 
home town of Tarsus.  He was educated under Gamaliel at some point, but I 
doubt it was "since his bar mitzvah."  As for Joseph, I wasn't aware that 
Arimathea was a synonym for Tarsus.

And while I'm on the subject, aren't we a little off subject here?
