  1. He’s beginning to remind me of Sanatorium. Sanctimonious Santorum. Unsanitary. I just wish he’d follow Dick Sanny and pull out. And I wish both their daddies had pulled out sooner…


  2. The irony, of course, is the theological apologetics that may be going on at the other end of the spectrum:

    In 2007, Simcha claimed he had discovered the bones of a very dead Jesus buried next to his wife and his family. This year, Simcha claims to have found the earliest “evidence” of Christian celebration of a resurrected Jesus. This means that we must ignore biblical accounts like those of “Doubting Thomas,” who wanted to touch the body of the physically resurrected Jesus, and redefine “resurrection” as the “spiritual resurrection and exhalation.”

    Simcha and Dr. Tabor seem to be setting out to find apologetic evidence for a set of modern beliefs that understands Jesus as “spiritually” resurrected, but not “physically” resurrected.

    The question we must ask is: who would benefit most from the discovery of first century evidence of a Christian belief in a spiritually, but not physically resurrected Jesus?
