A recent article from Relevant Magazine highlighted an issue that is prevalent among many students and young professionals (even the not so young professionals): burn out.
Davis College alumnus Art Boulet (’05) has co-edited a forthcoming volume with James Charlesworth entitled The Tomb of Jesus and His Family? Exploring Ancient Tombs Near Jerusalem’s Walls . The volume is currently scheduled for an October release.
Read the following excerpt from the Eerdman’s Publishing blog post.
Thanks in large part to the Discovery Channel’s planned broadcast tonight of “The Resurrection Tomb Mystery” — a documentary based on James Tabor and Simcha Jacobovici’s Jesus Discovery — there has been a flurry of recent online discussion by scholars and amateurs alike about the tombs Tabor and Jacobovici excavated in the Talpiot neighborhood in Jerusalem. Representative samples of this (sometimes vigorous) discourse can be found here, here, here, and here.
Several of these discussions — debating the merit and meaning of the findings popularly known as the “resurrection tomb,” the “Jesus family tomb,” the “James ossuary,” and the “Jonah ossuary” — make reference to the 2008 Princeton Symposium. This international congress brought scores of experts together in Jerusalem to examine Second Temple-period Jewish burial practices and views of the afterlife and to evaluate the so-called “Jesus family tomb” in context.
We’re pleased to announce that the conference papers from this landmark event will soon be published. The forthcoming volume — entitled The Tomb of Jesus and His Family? Exploring Ancient Tombs Near Jerusalem’s Walls and edited by James Charlesworth and Arthur Boulet — is currently scheduled for an October release.

When we are young it is easy to think ethnocentrically – meaning you might only see the world based on what’s around you. We might see Christianity as based right here in the United States. The truth, however, is that the message of God is spreading like wildfire all around the world. Take a look at this graphic to see the ways Christianity is moving among the people of the world.
