In my class on the historical Jesus yesterday we discussed the burial of Jesus, including some discussion of the Talpiot tomb. Here’s what’s been appearing in the blogosphere since my last round-up on the topic:
Meanwhile, various sites such as Phys.org, LiveScience and MSNBC are hyping these conclusions. Bob Cargill describes the alleged evidence they are drawing on as a case of “circular citations.”Michael Heiser posted on the topic, and also on James Tabor’s post about resurrection.
UPDATE: Since I first posted this round-up, several more posts have appeared on blogs I read:
Joel Watts linked to a post at Life’s Little Mysteries suggesting that the alleged inscription of the name Jonah is just random squiggles. Joel also responded to a post by April de Conick, leaning in the direction of seeing Jonah on the ossuary and viewing it as symbolic of the resurrection.
