Look Ma - No Hands!

New CSI for an Old Crime

I read a fascinating book this weekend, Ian Wilson’s Murder At Golgotha. Subtitled “Revisiting the Most Famous Crime Scene in History,” it’s an interesting look at Jesus’ crucifixion and other events during Holy Week from a forensic and analytic perspective.

While not proving the Bible to be 100% factually correct (neither completely possible nor necessary at all, for believers), Wilson’s book reviews all the testimonies and compares them with other historical and archeological documents as well as scientific examination of artifacts to show how they corroborate each other and helps clear up some possible misunderstandings that have crept into our culturally passed-along understanding.
