James Cameron and the Discovery Channel have been successful. They have a lot of people talking about “could it be true?” that he has found the remains of Jesus and his family (including wife) in a tomb in Jerusalem. But it’s and old story that has surfaced many times before and shall continue to stir the imagination of those weak in solid thinking. Cameron says “I looked at the evidence initially, and as a layman I found it to be compelling …. I haven’t seen anything that contradicts the initial hypothesis.” I would suggest that Mr. Cameron does what I did and turn to a trustworthy scholar and man of God, Dr. Darrell Bock, (New Testament Research Professor at Dallas Theological Seminary) for some factual basis for discounting the hype. Click on his name and go back to his blog often.
Another excellent resource is Kerby Anderson of Probe Ministries.
I’m editing this post so I can add the link Dr. Chris Rosebrough‘s research which I found equally helpful.
