O.J. Simpson compared himself in a television interview Thursday to Jesus and Moses and Job, and declared that he was merely speaking hypothetically when he told Esquire magazine that if he had killed his former wife, he would have done it "because I loved her very much." In an interview with the sports cable channel ESPN, Simpson said he made the comment hypothetically "as part of a scenario of things." It has since been taken out of context, he said.
