Jesus Crucifixion Nails Roundup Page

I’m way early on this, but I figured I’d start a page I can update as various bloggers beat  the snot out of opine about Simcha Jacobovici’s latest publicity hunting archaeological discovery.

So far we have a mere two, but they’re good ones:

Robert Cargill

Rogue Classicism

UPDATE: 4-12-2011: A news story about the snigger discovery has a bit of a quote from archeology professor Gabriel Barkay about why nails would be in the tomb.

UPDATE: 4-13-2011: Todd Bolen of BiblePlaces Blog has a cluster of quotes from Gabriel Barkay again about nails and tombs.

UPDATE: 4-14-2011: So Simcha Jacobovici is upset scholars aren’t turning handsprings at his latest silliness discovery. Real scholars explain why in the comments Jim West’s blogpost. And then Mark Goodacre writes a short essay explaining why he now prefers to ridicule certain claims. I think Jim West’s cats have the right reactions (Simcha’s not the only shameless publicity whore).

UPDATE: 4-15-2011: Todd Bolen references this very informative article by Gordon Franz

UPDATE 4-19-2011: Joe Zias, an anthropologist intimately involved with the Jesus nails, gives his own account of their modern history and Simcha Jacobovici’s claims about them.

I’m sure there’s more than the subject deserves to come.
