The Talpiot Mysteries: Featuring the Biblioblog Detectives and the Case of the Ichthyomorphic Ossuary Unguentaria/Amphora

The biblioblogs have been abuzz with discussions about the Talpiot tombs. Here are some highlights:

Bob Cargill, Mark Goodacre, Steve Caruso, and Tom Verenna have all been drawing attention to digitally-altered images which have apparently since been substituted with others on the Jesus Discovery web site. This follows on from Mark’s post yesterday about discrepancies and anomalies among the digital images.

Juan V. Fernández de la Gala makes the case that it is not a fish but an amphora on the ossuary, on the ASOR blog.

Tom Verenna emphasized that this is not a case about fake artifacts, and tried to clarify how this discovery differs from other notorious ones.
