Earliest Images of Jesus’ Apostles Found

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

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.

Jesus, Origins Movies and Robin Hood

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).

The Good Man Philip or the Scoundrel Pullman?

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.

How Would Jesus Vote?

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?

Don’t laugh, Jesus went by Donkey

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.

Elton John: “Jesus was Gay”

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”.

Irish Republican Jesus

Gerry Adams might not be someone you would expect to find talking about Jesus. Indeed the last Conservative government found him so despicable that they banned his voice from being broadcast. But next Sunday, Adams will be doing just that as part of Channel 4’s series, The Bible: A History.

Film Review: The Book of Eli

Ever wondered what would happen to the Bible in a post-apocalyptic age? Denzel Washington clearly has, not only starring in The Book of Eli, but putting up much of the funding as well.

The story is set thirty plus in the future, but we’re never told when or what, exactly happened. There was a war, a flash, and now all that remains is a tiny fraction of the population and a landscape strewn with human and mechanical wreckage. Travelling through what remains of the world is Eli (Washington) who, unbeknownst to anyone, is carrying the last remaining copy of the Bible.   

Here’s to you Mrs Robinson, Jesus loves you more than you will know.

The gospels only tell us of one occasion when Jesus encountered a woman caught in adultery (John 8). She is dragged before him in front of an unforgiving crowd, baying for blood. They all know the law: she should be stoned to death.
