Fruit of the Tomb

Just watched the Discovery Channel's Jesus Tomb documentary ... what a cheese-ball production. For a more reasoned review, check out Mark Goodacre's post ... here.

* PS * Ben Witherington also has a detailed review of the show - here

'cheeseball production' - that made me smile this morning (funny!).

I didn't see the show - it's hard to believe they made 2 hours out of it, but I skimmed through Goodacre's review of it. I agree with his assessment that this will eventually die-down.

The title of this post made me laugh this morning.

We had a power outage last night - a cut cable? or fundamentalist conspiracy to prevent me from watching tv?

Thanks. Since I don't get the discovery channel, it was nice to get the reference to Goodacre's review. "Cheeseball production"... sounds like it.

Hi you guys -

Cheese-ball was the least offensive thing I could think of, considering the quality of the show :-)

Also interesting was the critique afterwards with Ted Koppel, an archaeologist, a biblical scholar, and a few religious spokespeople.

Mark did a gereat job of an over-view.

Hi Crystal,

Thanks for the heads-up and the link to Goodacre. Good to know.

I've been very busy lately, what happened to the post about Grandpa?? I loved that! You got rid of it before I had a chance to comment on it. I thought it was a beautiful testimonial.

"Cheese-ball production" is poetic in that it says a great deal in very few words.

Hey, I want to read about your personal life! And I'm sure I'm not the only one.
