At American Thinker I saw an interesting piece that touches on archeology and the truth of biblical accounts of the Lord’s Passion.
Archeologists say they may have uncovered site where Jesus stood trial
Archeologists excavating an old jail in Jerusalem uncovered what appears to be the remains of Herod’s palace – the place many biblical scholars identify as the location of the trial of Jesus by Pontius Pilate. The extraordinary find is located next to the Tower of David museum and is sure to be a popular attraction when it opens to the public.
Let me be clear about something. While I have no doubt about the veracity of the biblical accounts, and not the slightest doubt about the truth of the historicity of what we read in Scripture, for me the “historical Jesus” is only of mild interest. The Jesus I am truly interested in is the Lord and Savior, Good Shepherd and Just Judge who rose, ascended and will come again “from the East” to judge the quick and the dead.
