    I had the same thoughts of the person who said that the Wandering Jew is a Christian legend. I had not even heard of it until high school and it certainly would have not been my first thought upon realizing I was immortal or something. A Jew would have to be really inundated with Christian culture and legends to first thing of that, and I don't think that would happen during the 15th Century unless he converted or something. Probably his first thought would be Cain or something else more Jewish (I am not very familiar with Kabalah but that would be the first place I'd look).
