The authors certainly aren't out to gain fame or notoriety that many other academic types would be; specifically, by discounting or denigrating the works of another, many closed minded or stoic 'experts' would do a big 'shout over' as regards new finds and theory that may lead to the former 'expert' to be see as someone who messed up, didn't be thorough enough, or really didn't know what they were talking about on some points of the map. To save face and credence, for many of these their only recourse would be to bully their way through the 'new' discoveries of old things, for none of them ever want to see any sort of revision that would place them below any new take on things of days past. The 'inconvenient truth' would only serve to render them as human as the rest of us defective souls.
While I may not entirely agree with all the comments and rhetoric, or even some of the religious basis or historical interpretations present, all in all, the book represent a well rounded discertation of the subject and it's 'loose strings'. As mentioned in the 'Jesus Tomb', new finds and discoveries may not be convenient to any academic who currently holds the keys to enlightenment. Rather than rock the boat, it'd be better for those to simply encase it in concrete and forget about the 'new problem'.
The principal disadvantage that any reader has, or modern archaeologist for that matter, is we don't live the same way, nor have the same customs, nor even the same language.Read more ›
Charles Quarles, the editor, gathered together an outstanding group of respected scholars in their fields to write the chapters of this book. Steven Ortiz, a biblical archaeologist, and Darrell Bock, a justly famous New Testament scholar, contribute helpful introductory and concluding chapters. Craig Evans, author of the book _Jesus and the Ossuaries_ just a few years ago, discusses the ossuaries and tomb in question. Richard Bauckham, a pioneer in the study of Jewish names in the biblical period (among his many other accomplishments as a New Testament scholar), contributes a chapter on the names found on the ossuaries. William Dembski, a professional mathematician who also happens to be the leading light of the intelligent design movement, discusses the statistical fallacies of the Jesus-tomb advocates. Finally, Gary Habermas and Michael Licona, two leading evangelical scholars on the subject of Jesus' resurrection, each offer a chapter on this crucial issue.
Each scholar examines the evidence based on his or her field of expertise. It proves that the docudrama is a total fraud.
