The Simcha Strikes Back

Mark Goodacre writes

Simcha Jacobovici, who has recently been appointed professor of religious studies at Huntington University, has answered critics of The Jesus Discovery in a couple of venues, on James Tabor’s blog and now in comments on the ASOR blog.   My favourite line in Prof. Jacobovici’s comments on the ASOR blog is the following:  At the end of the day, I think there is a principle in British common law that serves us well i.e., if it quacks like a fish, and flaps like a fish, and waddles like a fish – it’s a fish!

One observation- Huntington must be completely desperate for publicity.  Jacobovici being a Professor of religious studies is like Cargill being a professor of marketing.
