If you’ve just heard about this story, you can read my initial comments here. More sound analysis can be found at James White’s site and at the internetmonk. Joe Zias, a retired expert in paleopathology in Israel, has some good comments on the ANE-2 list today (here and here, may require free membership to view). And the Discovery Channel will have a discussion forum with experts including James Charlesworth, Amy-Jill Levine, and James D. Tabor. Tabor will have more on his blog in days to come, and he appears to be a big promoter of this new theory, especially as it will help his book sales. Tabor’s starting point is that Jesus certainly had a human father and he certainly never walked out of his tomb.
