Earliest Images of Jesus’ Apostles Found

27/06/10 | Posted by MattPage | Permalink | (0) Comments

Archaeologists in Rome have uncovered the earliest known images of Jesus’ apostles Andrew and John. It’s the latest discovery in the Saint Tecla/Thekla catacomb deep below the streets of Vatican City where last year an image of the apostle Paul was also discovered. All three images have been dated to the second half of the 4th century AD.

Fishers of None

31/05/10 | Posted by MattPage | Permalink | (2) Comments

I read recently that the numbers of fish in the Sea of Galilee have become so low that the Israeli authorities have been forced to ban fishing there for the next two years. Some blame overfishing, whilst others point the finger at illegal fishermen. Still others blame changes in the environment which have disrupted the food chain. But it’s interesting that the fish that is worst-affected is the St. Peter’s fish, named after Jesus’ right-hand-man, Simon Peter. More ...

Jesus, Origins Movies and Robin Hood

16/05/10 | Posted by MattPage | Permalink | (2) Comments

Ridley Scott’s Robin Hood hit cinema screens this week, hitting the middle of the target at the box office as well as opening the Cannes film festival (where it’s portrayal of the French as scheming, bad-fighting cowards must have gone down really well). More ...

The Good Man Philip or the Scoundrel Pullman?

01/05/10 | Posted by MattPage | Permalink | (0) Comments

Back in February we published a list of significant books about Jesus ranging from the pope’s own “Jesus of Nazareth” to the highly controversial novel “Last Temptation of Christ”. Yet if we’d published the list a couple of months later, I suspect we may have added the latest novel from Philip Pullman, “The Good Man Jesus and the Scoundrel Christ”.

Pullman is well known for expressing his anti-religious views through his work. His “His Dark Materials” trilogy was frequently interpreted as an attack on both the Church and God himself. Interestingly, that series dealt with the Old Testament and the history of the Church but skipped over the gospels, but now Pullman has returned to fill that particular gap. More ...

How Would Jesus Vote?

13/04/10 | Posted by MattPage | Permalink | (0) Comments

So the election has been called for May 6th and the next few weeks will see the airwaves thick with clichéd slogans, billboards festooned with glossy posters and armies of canvassers interrupting peaceful evenings. But is there anything worth voting for, and how would a certain preacher from Galilee have acted if he found himself (somewhat bizarrely) in our shoes today? More ...

What do I do?

01/04/10 | Posted by Poppy | Permalink | (6) Comments

It is really tough when, as a parent, you see your child bullied at school. Two of mine have had real problems with this and, as a Christian, I really struggle. On one hand I am tasked with loving my neighbour and turning the other cheek. On the other Jesus was known for valuing children. It is difficult to know what to do when it is my child that is being thrown across a room or punched in the stomach. More ...

Don’t laugh, Jesus went by Donkey

29/03/10 | Posted by MattPage | Permalink | (0) Comments

Said a supposedly humorous car sticker from the 80s, and today is the day that people celebrate the memory of Jesus’ most famous road trip - his journey into Jerusalem on the back of a donkey. The symbolism of Jesus’ mode of transport is largely lost on us today. Almost no-one in the west travels on animals today, let alone going by donkey, and even in the middle east donkeys tend to be used to carry goods rather than passengers. More ...

Elton John: “Jesus was Gay”

18/03/10 | Posted by MattPage | Permalink | (9) Comments

Pop superstar Elton John has caused outrage by claiming Jesus was gay. In an interview for America’s Parade magazine John suggests that “Jesus was a compassionate, super-intelligent gay man who understood human problems”. More ...

Dying to die?

28/02/10 | Posted by Poppy | Permalink | (3) Comments

I blogged back in December about my father in law who is very ill. Thanks to a wonderful care home he is still with us, but all the debates about euthanasia in the news recently have raised really important questions for us. What do you do when someone says they have had enough and don't want to go on? More ...

TV Review: The Bible: A History - Jesus (With Gerry Adams)

22/02/10 | Posted by MattPage | Permalink | (9) Comments

Gerry Adams’ exploration of Jesus and his teaching was always going to prove controversial, but it was pleasing to see that Channel 4 didn’t just go for the headlines, but also managed to make a high-quality, thought-provoking, documentary as well. More ...
