Here’s the latest on the Talpiot tombs and the ossuary which should presumably cease being referred to as the “Jonah ossuary”:
Bob Cargill has made another video about the image on the “Jonah ossuary”:
The ASOR blog draws attention to a publication discussing that same ossuary, and the image on it, way back in 1981. See too the post about the article on Michael Heiser’s blog.
Bob Cargill also offers further analysis not only of the image on the ossuary, but also the “digitally enhanced” version that featured in the documentary.
ABC News has a video clip featuring James Tabor and Mark Goodacre. See also Mark Goodacre’s own blog post about the news piece.
Jim West and James Tabor have not been getting along, as a result of something Jim wrote about James Charlesworth. Jim West has never offended anyone else before, and so this is truly shocking.
Several scholars also get mentioned in a piece in The Christian Post.
In related news, PZ Myers has pharyngulated an online poll about whether there was a historical Jesus. Duane Smith explains the problems with the poll’s wording as well as the historical issues.
