Was Jesus English?

The England Cricket Squad have decided to release their version of Jerusalem in time for Christmas... But how ever good the song may be, it is debatable as to whether Jesus actually was English. Some scholars believe that there are even verses in the bible that suggest he wasn't.

And did those feet in ancient time
Walk upon England's mountains green
And was the holy lamb of God
On England's pleasant pastures seen

And did the countenance divine
Shine forth upon our clouded hills
And was Jerusalem builded there
Among those dark Satanic mills

Bring me my bow burning gold
Bring me my arrows of desire
Bring me my spears o'clouds unfold
Bring me my chariot of fire

I will not cease from mental fight
Nor shall my sword sleep in hand
'Til we have built Jerusalem
In England's green and pleasant land

Colin Yeates, A British adventurer (father of 7, landscape gardener and member of Grace Community Church, Chandlers Ford) has taken on a madcap challenge: to sail solo and totally unassisted round the Antarctic continent. His initial aim is to become the first person ever to achieve this feat; also, like many other adventurers, his thoughts are based on science. Along the course he will take, his intention is to gather as much information as possible about the Southern Ocean on behalf of the British Meteorological Office, the British Antarctic Survey, the UK Hydrographic Office, the Oceanography Society and the Department of Oceanography at the University of Southampton. This data will be used for studying global warming more closely.
Setting sail in a boat built specially by Rossiter Yachts Ltd (Christchurch, Dorset), the adventurer will take 1600 kg of equipment and stores with him.
Scheduled departure: from the Falkland Islands, around mid-December 2005
