Light Blogging and the "Jesus Tomb"

I've been preparing for lecture/talk with Karen King and Elaine Pagels, of Gnostic gospels fame, so I haven't had the time to prepare new blog entries in our ongoing textual criticism series.

Hopefully, sometime soon.

On a different note, did anyone see the Discovery Channel's "Jesus Tomb" special? I forgot it was on, but I've been reading a lot about it.

Here is a blog entry that links to valuable sources that has been doing a great job keeping its links up to date.

Dr. James White has been doing a tremendous job on this over at his site.

These two links have plenty to keep you busy. Plus, you'll learn a lot.

I would have to say the best part about all of this is that people are learning that Jesus's name was "Yeshua."

"Yeshua" -> Greek -> English = "Jesus"

Different Hebrew forms -> English = "Joshua"

The names evolved differently. Namely, "Joshua" didn't come through the Greek. Feel free to ask a language professor for a clarification and better explanation.

No, the best thing about this lost tomb movie is that Christianity is a false religion. Yeshu did not resurrect, did not ascend, and did not die for the sins of mankind. and guess what, we're all not going to hell. Your Satanic doctrine of Christianity has been disproven. You know what that means? Eichman is burning in hell and his victims are in heaven not the other way around like you insane arrogant Christians beleive.
Your evil doctrines and religion has murdered more people than anything else and now it's over. Only the stupidest and most ignorant boob will ever buy your stupid evil religion which is nothing more than the religion of Mithras repackaged by Constanine. Yes, you fool. The entire religion of christianity was formed by a man who wasn't even a practitioner of it. Contantine was not stupid enough to actually beleive in Christianity. He just formed it's doctrine, it's scriptures and all three of it's gods. You are a fool and so are all who belive in Mithras, oops I mean Jesus. Also, guess what the DNA tests on Mary and Jesus' brothers will also disprove the virgin birth. So you will be left with a shell of a religion. Your faith is a lie. I love seeing how you Je Zeus worshippers who used to puff your chests out and says only those who accept Je Zeus will go to heaven, everyone who doesn't will burn in hell. I love seeing you with you chests caved in, desperately defending your crumbling faith. All of your preachers look like the bumbling fools that they truly are.

Who ever said that Eichman was in heaven or was a believer in Jesus?

Maybe I'll do stuff on the mystery religions sometime. But, for now, feel free to tell me what is compelling about the evidence from the tomb documentary. Since secular Israeli archaeologists aren't finding it compelling, nor am I, I'd be curious why it is so great. I assume you like anything that "disproves" the claims of Yeshua.

Hello, I came across your blogsite and thought it was very interesting. I hope you don't mind me stopping by. Thank You.

Also noticed how "anonymous" accused Christianity of being false that he/she couldn't use his/her name.
