Thanks to David Meadows for the nudge in this direction. Following up on Mark Goodacre’s excellent post on Simcha’s predisposition to locate any link whatsoever to Jesus or Christianity, this video has earmarks which might prove to be more nails in the
coffin ossuary on this subject.
Now some screen grabs:
Now listen carefully to the 4-6 minute marks. Here is the important bit:
“Although we found ourselves in the wrong tomb, perhaps these finely crafted ossuaries so close to the Talpiot tomb are somehow connected to Jesus or his followers.”
Silliness. But it is evidence that there not only was predisposition to locate evidence linking it to Jesus and Christianity, but also evidence (via Goodacre and Meadows’ various posts on the footage from 2007) which suggests that there was a presupposition to find a fish.
I also wonder if some of these photos on the website were from 2007 and not from this recent investigation.
