The Jesus Tomb – an easy debunk

March 12, 2007 — Leave a comment

Someone suggested I should comment on the latest claim to disprove Jesus and the faith.  I agree with Scot McKnight about the profiteering nature of claims against Jesus’ authority.  “….I’ve lived long enough to see the emergence, the trend, and now the aging of the genre of Easter ambulance-chasing publishers. Every Lent….a publisher announces a new discovery, making the claim that the Christian gospel has neither a good Friday nor some good news. The genre is old, the trick has been seen before, and the American public knows the game.”

For those wanting the detailed debunking, see this thorough article by theologian Ben Witherington, who has one of the quickest response times to current issues in the Christian world!
