Many archaeologists say this fourth century synagogue in Capernaum, a fishing village on the shore of the Sea of Galilee, stands on the site of a synagogue where Jesus worshipped and preached.

Many Christians were upset when Israeli antiquities experts recently declared a first century inscription bearing Jesusís name a fake, seemingly depriving them of the earliest archaeological proof of Jesusís existence.

That evidence shows, among other things, that Jesus was born, lived and died a Jew — a perspective at odds with beliefs that Jesus rejected Judaism to form a new religion or taught a pagan-influenced humanist philosophy, Shanks and other scholars said.

So who believes that anyway? Seriously?

I agree - I don't know anyone who believes that Jesus "rejected Judaism, formed a new religion", etc.

Jesus, being God, CREATED Judaism. He was the greatest Jew ever to live. He knew what the intent of the Law was, and how to live it. BTW - the Law was never designed to bring about righteousness before God. It was designed to expose sinfulness before God and highlight a need for forgiveness.

How can this be done? Pay for mankind's sin, that's how.

But who can pay for mankind's sin when every one of them is sinful? One who is born sinless, but human.

Who is that person? Jesus of Nazareth, and we celebrate His birth on December 25.

Merry Christmas.

"Jesus, whose primary language was Aramaic, would have improved on his Greek or been exposed to exotic clothing, ceramics, jewelry and food and heard new ideas expounded on street corners"... Rather obvious that Reed does not believe that Jesus was God incarnate.

Alert! Alert! Alert!

Anything written or co-written by Crossen has got to be whacked-out.

the wonderful thing is that he was also truly and fully human.
I Cor. 15:21 "For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive."

the discovery of mikvahs, or Jewish ritual baths, in virtually every house suggests that the population of more than 12,000 was Jewish, he said ...

They make the life-style of Sephorris sound very cultivated and privileged. It is melancholy to consider that so much was then swept away in the wars and revolutions of the declining Roman Empire.

Nothing reads as beautiful as God's Word.
