Latest Talpiot Tomb Round-Up (including a review of The Burial of Jesus)

Latest Talpiot Tomb Round-Up (including a review of The Burial of Jesus) March 6, 2012

Here’s a round-up of the latest blogging about the Talpiot tomb and related topics on other blogs.

Let me begin with Daniel Mănăstireanuţs blog review of my book The Burial of Jesus, which he said grabbed his interest for multiple reasons, including the current media attention to the Talpiot tombs.

Christopher Rollston points out the lack of evidence for any connection between the Talpiot tombs and Joseph of Arimathea. Jim West shared evidence that his family still lives in the apartment building on the site. 🙂

Steve Caruso makes the case that it isn’t a fish that is depicted on the ossuary.

Near Emmaus discusses Craig Evans’ new book on NT archaeology, which mentions the Talpiot tombs. EerdWord highlights four books on how archaeology should be done.

Simcha Jacobovici asked for mistakes in his Jesus tomb claims to be pointed out to him. Mark Goodacre did just that.

Jason Staples asks whether the Tabor-Jacobovici position is that first-century Christians who believed Jesus had risen from the dead ended up buried right near where Jesus himself remained buried, and if so how they make sense of that.

Tom Verenna posted a round-up of his own, as did Jim Davila.

Jesus tomb objects will be coming to Philadelphia.

In related news, a verdict about the James Ossuary is expected this month.

I suspect that the next Biblical Studies Carnival will have a lot of links related to the Talpiot tombs!
