wrong about Jesus?

So THIS story showed up on Yahoo today. I love to read these stories just to see how far people go with them. Seriously, Mr. Bronner seems to assert that this tablet states that there was already the idea of a messiah raising after three days. Yeah, we know. It’s called the OT. Hegoes on to say that this artifact seems to point to Jesus’ death and resurrection as being fabricated to match the ideas already in place. Haven’t we already seen this argument in the form of accommodation? Jesus died, then he came back alive. A doctor said so (Luke) is a doctor’s job to know the difference between dead and alive.

Jesus was crucified, during this He was stabbed directly in His heart. Then He was placed in a tomb, wrapped in 100 +/- pounds of burial cloths and laid in a cold tomb. Starting three days later people saw Him alive.

Stupid stone tablet…now I have to leave the church!

One response to “wrong about Jesus?

  1. I would submit that this “ancient tablet” is probably another sensationalist scam, as is clearly indicated by the facts

    (1) that no specific information is available on its provenance and

    (2) that no details are provided on carbon dating of the ink.

    As such, this “news” brings to mind the faked Lost-Tomb-of-Jesus “documentary” designed to make a profit off of people’s fascination with the “real” Jesus, as well as the larger scandal of the biased and misleading way the Dead Sea scrolls are being presented in museum exhibits around the world, with an antisemitic expression appearing on a government-run North Carolina museum’s website. See, e.g.,
