The theme of the month at the ASOR Blog is “Fakes, Looting, and Artifacts Lacking Context” and the first few posts are up:
- Buyer Beware: Shopping for Artifacts in the Holy Land, by Morag M. Kersel
- The Secondary Context Workshop: A Report
At Christianity Today, Gordon Govier reviews the recent Easter archaeology stories of the Talpiot Tomb and the James Ossuary verdict.
Joe Yudin provides a history of the temple as preparation for Passover.
Ferrell Jenkins remembers the Passion Week of Jesus with posts on the Via Dolorosa and Reclining in the Upper Room.
Lois Tverberg offers a free download of “A Taste of Passover” through the end of the month.
If you didn’t sacrifice an animal at the temple yesterday, even though such is commanded for Passover, it is very difficult to understand the price that must be paid for your redemption. The Sacrifice video ($10) by SourceFlix will help.
