Joe Zias: Scintillating Observation on the ‘Lead Codices’

Joe writes on ANE-2 (and I quote with his permission)-

They are of such poor quality I’m surprised that anyone bought the story. On the other hand it’s always the biblical scholars who fall for this stuff as dirt archaeologists, museum curators, and dealers can usually spot these items as forgeries a mile away. Moreover, look at the names of those involved, at times it’s a dead giveaway.

I would only add the caveat, ‘some biblical scholars’.
