Latest Biblical Archaeology Review

The latest edition of Biblical Archaeology Review just arrived. I know many of you are recoiling in horror at the thought of me subscribing :) I usually get so angry with it by the end that I want to burn it.

Anyway, this month Hershel decides he is the "hype police." In his column "First Person" he takes the National Geographic to task for the way they hyped the Gospel of Judas. He is right, of course. But, talk about the pot calling the kettle black! I think he is just jealous that it didn't come his way first. Can you imagine the hype? It would make what the NG did look tame.

In fairness, he does end his column by acknowledging that some will see this as the pot calling the kettle black, which it is.
