If Jesus was in there [the newly discovered ossuary], and sat up when I took the lid off, Iâ€™d first try to judge how angry he looked. If he had that money-changers-in-the-temple look, Iâ€™d go with a joke, like â€œHa ha! Turn the other cheek!â€? Or maybe Iâ€™d try to explain to him that the extra suffering was extra good for humanity, and after all, thatâ€™s his job. Then Iâ€™d say, â€œHey, I donâ€™t like my job either, but you donâ€™t see me complaining all the time.â€?
I also had a chuckle at this over at Revelee:
They ask: “Statistically, what are the chances that all of these names would occur in one cluster?”
My response: “I’m no expert in statistics, but I’m sure the odds are pretty close to the chances of two film producers making a discovery that will change history decades after the primary scholars concluded their work on the tomb.”
Ted Olson over at Christianity Today has a satiric interview with James Cameron.
