Jesus Discovery latest at ASOR blog

THE ASOR BLOG: Comments from Prof. Steven Fine on the “Jesus Discovery”. In short, the Jonah "icon" is a drawing of a tomb.

Professor Fine concludes:
I, for one, am wearied by the almost yearly “teaching moment” presented by these types of “discoveries.” I am hopeful, however, that—this time—a forceful and quick display of unanimous dissent by the leading members of the academic community will be taken seriously by the media and the public at large.
There are signs that that may happen this time.
