Explained: The Lead Codices

At last we get a good summary of the con-job attempted on the world. Tom Verenna explains the sad story of the lead codices hoax.

He also makes passing reference to the latest pseudo-archeology craze: Simcha Jacobovici claims (falsely) to have found the actual nails used in the crucifixion of Jesus.

It is sad to me that archeology of biblical lands and periods is being trivialized by stunts like these. The real thing looks far less Indiana Jones-ish, moves along much more slowly, and is a helpful part of historical research.

Here is Tom Verenna’s article at The Bible and Interpretation.
