to comment on McCreery's material on Jesus Christ-martyr:

Surely  there is some severe kind of psychological suffering going on at 
the  time.
Well, perhaps the problem is in 'pathology'. We tend to assume it's a  bad 
thing. But when Saul (or Paul, later St. Paul) spoke of the 'passio' of  
Christ, he meant 'pathos'. Mutatis mutandis, he was pathological.
