Loquats, Olive Oil, and Tombs

What the three things mentioned in the title of this post have in common is my friend Eldad Keynan, who stopped by the hotel where I am staying in Haifa and spoke to my students as well as me. He brought me some fruit from his garden (sheseq, which a quick internet search informed me is loquat) and some fresh olive oil. He also shared news about his ongoing quest to find evidence of early Jewish Christian tombs. Whatever your view of the Talpiot tombs, which some consider to be such evidence, there is nothing inappropriate about thinking that there could be archaeological evidence of very early Jewish Christianity, and seeking to find it.
