If there was an award for Most Timely Blog, it should be awarded to Todd Bolen for his post yesterday called Early Christian Lead Books Discovery: Some Problems.
With claims such as have been made for this discovery, ones’s in-box gets flooded with enquiries and it takes time to set out the facts. Time is in short short supply here at the moment, so I can do no better than refer you to his incisive post.
There may be something to this discovery, but first the artifacts must be confiscated by the officials and assigned to reputable scholars.
It may be April Fool’s Day, but let us take the advice of wise Solomon:
“He who answers a matter before he hears it, it is folly and shame to him” (Proverbs 18.13, NKJV).
