I’ve received 2 email alerts today touting the Jonah ossuary inscription as legitimate as proven by James Charlesworth’s independent examination.
Isn’t it odd that scholarship has devolved to the point where academics and people with a financial stake in a matter have turned to publicity firms to market their ‘product’ once the academic community as a whole has rejected and proven it wrong.
What we’re seeing is the abandonment of academic methodology and the embracing of the crude and cynical methods of the marketplace.
We live in odd times. Our scholars are coming to resemble P.T. Barnum and not Gerhard von Rad.
