Nazareth Inscription tablet not what thought?

Recommended Posts

Eldorado

"A marble tablet warning grave robbers away from tombs soon after the disappearance of Jesus’s body may not be what it seems. That’s the conclusion of a new chemical analysis of the marble, which finds that the object was quarried in Greece, not the Middle East. Instead, the famous “Nazareth inscription” was likely created to guard the grave of a Greek tyrant who died a few decades before Christ.

"A former curator at the Louvre, Wilhelm Froehner, acquired the tablet in Paris in 1878, probably from an antiquities dealer from Greece or the Middle East, and kept it in his private collection until his death. He left behind a cryptic note that it “came from Nazareth.” That led the French archaeologist Franz Cumont to propose in 1930 that it was connected to Jesus’s disappearance.

How words  can create a story and how beliefs can change that story.

It is amazing how today they do these tests

By measuring the ratios of carbon and oxygen isotopes, they captured the unique chemical fingerprint of the marble

There was a type of  Jewish "magician-priesthood" running around Palestine stealing bodies for ceremonial magic. So this crap was common.

There's no evidence that Jesus even existed. Everything we 'know' about him was written hundreds of years after his supposed death.
Sorry, Christians...But there's a really good chance your key figure is a myth or at best, an amalgam of many teachers/prophets living in the period.

Suetonius wrote about Jesus while Jesus was still alive; Tacitus wrote about him just a few decades after Jesus died. 

Find me more respected historians. 

I’m not saying Jesus was real. I’m not saying he wasn’t. I’m not even saying could-have-been-Jesuses like Mithras or Adonis weren’t thick on the ground in first-century Palestina.

I am saying you should be aware of what history actual says before you go citing it half-cocked.

This affirmation is not accurate. Historically Jesus existed and he did things ppl have spoke about, enough to make Roman's writing about years later. 

You don't expect Facebook and tweeter like publicity 2000 years ago right in times when no one was able to read and write. However even so, some ancient manuscripts survived and references are plainty online.

I've never understood the need some have to find actual evidence if Jesus. Isnt it enough to "Love thy Neighbor as thyself" without needing something to bolster your belief?

This modern trend started as a response to those contradicting his existence. Up to that point everyone just believed or not w/o necessity to confirm or infirm believes.

I'm not sure many historians would agree, i wouldn't attempt to try or want to prove the divinity of Jesus, but the fact that none Christian authors not only mention him but not always in a good light is a good indicator he existed, Josephus  a Jewish historian wrote about him in the 1st century.

It was radical for the time, maybe even for today.

Love for Enemies

43 “You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor[a] and hate your enemy.’ 44 But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, 45 that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. 46 If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that? 47 And if you greet only your own people, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that? 48 Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.
