The Jesus myth may not have been unique, but part of a recognized Jewish tradition

A three-foot-tall tablet with 87 lines of Hebrew that scholars believe dates from the decades just before the birth of Jesus is causing a quiet stir in biblical and archaeological circles, especially because it may speak of a messiah who will rise from the dead after three days.

If such a messianic description really is there, it will contribute to a developing re-evaluation of both popular and scholarly views of Jesus, since it suggests that the story of his death and resurrection was not unique but part of a recognized Jewish tradition at the time.

  1. The funny thing about Christianity is that I would probably think it was kind of gothy and metal if everyone else in the world acknowledged it as a fairy tale.

  2. What’s stupid about this story is that Christians (at least traditional denominations) teach that this was a part of Jewish Tradition. That the OT prophesies the coming of a messiah that will rise from the dead after 3 days. esp the book of Issiah.

    It is a non-story.
