A Survey of Various Blog Posts

Like many in the Christian world, my attention has been captured by the claim of the supposed discovery of the tomb of Jesus of Nazareth. The official web site for this show which will air Sunday Night on the Discovery Channel is found here.

Some of strongest criticisms I have found on the blogosphere are:

Problems Multiply for Jesus Tomb Theory by Ben Witherington
The Smoking Gun---Tenth Talpiot Ossuary Proved to be Blank by Ben Witherington
Did They Really Find Jesus' Bones? by Craig Blomberg
The Alleged 'Jesus family tomb' by Richard Bauckham
Also Darrell Bock has posted several posts on this subject found here. Dr. Bock will also be a part of the guest panel of scholars who will debate the merits of this film after the show on the Discovery Channel.

Denny Burk has amassed a catalogue of various sources of additional critiques of the 'Lost Tomb of Jesus.'

Thabiti Anyabwile has posted his thoughts from his recent trip to Southeast Asia where he debated Muslims and many opportunities to interact with both Muslims and Christians living in a Muslim dominated country.

Mark Overstreet has linked to an article written by John MacArthur who disagrees with the methodology of Mark Driscoll and believes he has soaked up too much of the culture in his attempt to be culturally relevant with the gospel.
