Update: What’s the story with Jesus? Whose tomb is it anyway?

Well: we’ve been told our reading of a blog is wrong and that no one claimed that Jesus wasn’t resurrected………if we misread, so be it, we’re looking for other opinions, to be “right” is to sometimes be blind anyway.

Here’s the original post. We’ll go approve the comment pointing out alleged errors. Anyone else with viewpoints?

Trolling through the tag surfers, we found an interesting article that somehow or other we might have missed if not for this blog…

A story tag reading: “James Cameron Takes on Jesus”.
The story goes, or might go, well, it does go, that Jesus was not resurrected and for over two decades, there has been knowledge that his tomb was elsewhere…we’re going to keep our eye on this blog and see what the press conference reveals today.

Perhaps we could have worded it better, when we said the story goes, we meant the recent news versions……….so apologies for any miscommunication born of poor word choice, ah, yet another argument for having a “word basket”.

  1. You have it wrong. Nowhere in the findings do any of the experts claim to have disproven Jesus’ resurrection – if you believe in a physical ASCENSION, then yes, there will be a problem. But if you believe it was spritiual, that doesn’t mean he couldn’t have physically resurrected and then his body returned to the earth.

    Anyway, get the facts befor you make assumptions, and be sure to check out the Jesus Family Tomb official website at http://www.jesusfamilytomb.com

  2. Thank you for your kind message.

    Funny, we weren’t stating that “experts claim” anything about Jesus. Regardless, it is always refreshing to see a multitude of views.

  3. I wrote the entry you are talking about. Here’s where I got my information:

    http://time-blog.com/middle_east/2007/02/jesus_tales_from_the_crypt.html

    From the Time blog:

    “Brace yourself. James Cameron, the man who brought you ‘The Titanic’ is back with another blockbuster. This time, the ship he’s sinking is Christianity.

    In a new documentary, Producer Cameron and his director, Simcha Jacobovici, make the starting claim that Jesus wasn’t resurrected –the cornerstone of Christian faith– and that his burial cave was discovered near Jerusalem. And, get this, Jesus sired a son with Mary Magdelene.”

  4. We often and too easily get caught up in the literal meaning of words, rather than “hearing” the broader intended message. Keep in mind what it took to reproduce a single page of the bible. Johannes Gutenberg made his first printing press – 1,400 years AFTER the birth of Jesus. Remember also that few people outside of the general area of where Jesus lived and taught spoke his language. Had his teachings never found a Greek voice (I think it was Peter), his message would have been buried along with his ancient language (Aramaic).

    So, someone found bones. Big deal.
    So, we all know it took at least 14 billion years for the universe to form – not 6 days. Big deal.
    So, we all know that the Shroud of Turin doesn’t date to the time of Christ. Big Deal.
    Even a casual student of ancient history knows that the very idea of a “resurrection” is not unique to Christianity. Big deal.
    It changes nothing.
    And besides, it’s about a movie!

  5. Thank you for the visual of going back in time and understanding what it took to place down words for supposed posterity. It puts a new context on the lack of context or the multitude of dimensions on the supposed context.

    Let’s be serious, how can we know what was said or unsaid? Do any of us even agree half the time as to how a conversation went one day ago?

    Look at this litigious world, he said, she said………………………

  6. FIRST IT WAS THE PASSION OF CHRIST, THAT DID’NT SEEM TO WORK; JESUS IS STILL IN OUR HEARTS AND WILL REMAIN IN OUR HEARTS THROUGHOUT ENTERNITY. NOW IT’S JESUS’S TOMB?WHAT’S NEXT? FOR JESUS’S SAKE WHAT IN THE WORLD IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE? THERE ARE TONS OF OTHER WAYS TO WIN FAME, DO YOURSELVES A HUGE FAVOR AND LEAVE THIS MATTER ALONE.JESUS IS OUR LORD & SAVIOR, AND THERE IS NOTHING IN THIS UNIVERSE THAT COULD POSSIBLY CHANGE THE TRUTH. DON’T LE T THE DEVIL TAKE CONTROL, JESUS IS STRONGER, AND HE WATCHES OVER YOU.KEEP THE SPECULATIONS AND ASSUMPTIONS TO YOURSELVES, PLEASE. GOD LOVES US ALL AND WATCHES OVER US. HE IS GOOD ALL THE TIME AND ALL THE TIME HE IS GOOD!

  7. With all due respect, ARE YOU SERIOUS?

    You lambast people using the brains, hearts, emotions, souls that God and/or Jesus gave us, for what, for thinking, for asking?

    IS THAT NOT WHAT JESUS ALLEGEDLY DID THAT HE WAS ALLEGEDLY CRUCIFIED FOR?

    And seriously, are you taking “sides”? If so, how does the blasphemy fit in?
