    Yes, I just saw that on the bbc website: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/middle_east/6397373.stm

    The thing that made me laugh was the end of the article:

    'Local residents said they were pleased with the attention the tomb has drawn.

    "It will mean our house prices will go up because Christians will want to live here," one woman said.'

    Jesus used "interesting entertainment" and liked the "masses" if the Gospels are to be believed. Why should you be such an elitist snob?

    He so liked masses that He sometimes avoided them. He refused to be made a king by a crowd that wanted to coronate Him on the spot.

    He so liked masses that after three and a half years He only had 120 left in the upper room waiting for His promise of the coming of the Holy Spirit. What a sensation. After all those miracles and feedings, only 120 faithful followers left.

    And all the sensational entertainment He offered them - like this sensational crowd pleaser:

    "And there were great crowds going along with Him, and He turned and said to them, If anyone comes to Me and does not hate his own father and mother and wife and children and brothers and sisters, and moreover, even his own soul-life, he cannot be My disciple" (Luke 14:26)

    Great etertainment! Sold out tickets!

    I disagree with you here, it was the misogyny of St. Paul and the Roman church, especially under the Emperor Constantine, that diminished her role within the Christian canon. Certainly the accusation that she was a prostitute sounds like just the kind of thing that they'd say to try to write someone out of history. The fact that they were unsuccessful indicate to me that there was a very strong relationship between Jesus and Mary Magdalen. Maybe they were lovers, after all in your canon Jesus was a part of God incarnated as a man and to make that true he would have to experience the full range of human experience.

    For someone who claims to have made a life long study of the Bible, you don't seem to know anything about Jesus' ministry. There are 35 public miracles ("interesting entertainment"😉 given in the Gospels. And perhaps you missed Matthew 4:23-25 as regards the "masses":

    23 And Jesus went about in all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all manner of disease and all manner of sickness among the people.

    24 And the report of him went forth into all Syria: and they brought unto him all that were sick, holden with divers diseases and torments, possessed with demons, and epileptic, and palsied; and he healed them.

    25 And there followed him great multitudes from Galilee and Decapolis and Jerusalem and Judaea and from beyond the Jordan.

    Maybe you meant that you studied the binding of your Bible, not the words contained within. Or maybe you're relying on Witness Lee heretical doctrines again.

    Do you have any sources to back this up?
