Craig Evans on the ‘So-Called Jesus Discovery’

Evans opines

As expected, the so-called Jesus Discovery is making headlines around the world. The claims are amazing; the leaps in logic are breath-taking; and most archaeologists are utterly unconvinced.

And

ABC News assured viewers that the Patio Tomb “will be debated for the next 2,000 years.” I shall be quite surprised if anyone is talking about it in two years.

Actually, no one would be talking about it now if its purveyors weren’t constantly issuing ‘press releases’. But in fact in two years or less this will matter as much as anything else Jacobovici and Tabor have done together: none at all.  After all, didn’t they make a film a year or two ago?  I don’t even remember what it was supposed to be about.
