Regarding the recent “early-books-of-Christianity-discovered-by-a-bedouin-scam” reported here and elsewhere over the past week or so, information provided by Jim Davila’s always sensible and reliable Paleojudaica.com should put the whole thing to bed once and for all.
Philip Davies should know better.
Margaret Baker should get her head out of the clouds.
The Director of the Jordanian Department of Antiquities, Ziad Al-Saad, should investigate an unprovenanced discovery on the antiquities market more thoroughly before he makes muscular official statements to the press about “treasures” and make claims for repatriation.
And David Elkington, whoever you are, should never try to pull a stunt like this again.
