Wow. Did you watch the Jesus Tomb show on Discovery last night? I watched it until it felt too much like Alien Autopsy: (Fact or Fiction). The carelessness with which they treated the facts … no … not carelessness — deceitfulness — was just too frustrating for me to stick with it. I have it on my DVR, so I will watch it in bits and pieces, kind of like the way you eat really bad food — tiny bites, so you don’t throw up.
However, Ben Witherington has a great piece on it at his blog. Read his text and then read some comments. The text from Dr. Witherington will affirm the flaws in the production and a couple of the comments (if they don’t get deleted) will affirm the gullibility of humankind in believing this sort of tabloid documentary.
Thanks, Doc W. for your excellent coverage on this film!
