It's all right, I've run across the Toledot Yeshu before. :-) Anyway, I don't find it offensive; I mean it was basically pushback against supersessionist mediaeval Christians AIUI, and just because they found it offensive enough to ban the best part of a millennium ago doesn't mean that I have to.

I think I just quacked for Hebrew dictionary and picked the first one that had a transliteration thingy that I could more or less use. Looking at it again, Reverso has a bunch of citations that seem like the modern sense of "solve", but "absolve" does sound like more like what I vaguely remember from what Roth said. I certainly don't know enough Hebrew to even know what I'm looking for in terms of dictionaries though.

Miscellaneous. Eclectic. Random. Perhaps markedly literate, or at least suffering from the compulsion to read any text that presents itself, including cereal boxes.
