I often chose best answers not because they are the best, but because I have to choose a best answer. Please, don't take offense to it.

comment In what sense did Judas betray Jesus?
@Caleb - Please, answer my last question here. It is a matter that has long been perplexing me as regard to the "right way" of asking questions here, and I still haven't gotten any clear explanation as to how to go about such cases as this one.

Apart from that, it's a very good answer. Thank you.

I don't quite understand why such uncertainty about what the torture is. Perhaps, I wasn't clear enough in my question, but I meant inflicting ANY KIND of physical pain, and not necessarily resulting in a death. Therefore, all kinds of physical-pain-inflicting punishments mentioned in your answer are to be considered "in" in the view of this question - regardless of how they were being viewed in their times. Hence, I like your WHO definition. So, as for the "torture", we take our modern definition, and as for "heresy", we take take the definition of those who called it "heresy", as you said.

comment Why neither David nor Solomon were stoned to death?
"He had seven hundred wives, princesses, and three hundred concubines" (1 Kings 11:3) - Did he really marry 300 concubines? What's the difference between wives and concubines? How marriage was understood at that time if besides marrying wives one was also suppose to marry his concubines?

Perhaps, no two witnesses in case of David, but what about the case of Solomon? I guess there were numerous witnesses who could prove that he had many concubines.
