Oh Please

You’ve gotta be kidding me. I hesitate to even comment on this whole James Cameron/ tomb of Jesus thing, because it’s so dumb. First people confused The Da Vinci Code with reality, and now a filmmaker is stepping outside the fiction veil and trying to legitimize these ideas about Jesus being a mere man, a husband, a dad, etc.

If you’re interested in things like archeology, ancient writings, and evidence for the various claims surrounding Jesus, it really doesn’t take long to sift through the false evidence.

But you could spend a lifetime exploring the authentic evidence corroborating the scriptural claims about Jesus Christ, the virgin-born Son of God who died on a cross, was resurrected three days later, and ascended to Heaven to live forever and ever.

If you’re more interested in hype than evidence, I’m sure you’ll have ample opportunity in the coming weeks to indulge yourself.

But if you’re actually interested in reality and genuine scholarship, there’s a whole world of evidence to explore. Probably the most comprehensive and reliable one-stop source is The New Evidence That Demands A Verdict, by Josh McDowell. This covers everything. It’s very readable and absolutely fascinating.

Online, some other great resources include the websites of Christian apologists Ravi Zacharias and Josh McDowell. I’d encourage you to check them out if you’re interested in the actual truth.
