Re: Barbara Thiering on "The Jesus Family Tomb"

The marketplace for information on the origins of christianity is booming....perhaps entering a period of "irrational exhuberance"....

The Jesus Tomb presentation would seem to conflict with the herodian/julian connection discussions here as well as with Atwill. Both of which, while well short of proofs, make tremendous sense. Truth seems more easily sought beginning with belief and tempering/re-evaluating based on new "facts", rather than beginning with the "facts"....many "facts" seem to be altered by close observation and examinations.

I expect that we will see a lot more of this as the advertising dollars for this medium expand.
