Weekend Roundup, Part 1
Leo Depuydt still believes that the “Gospel of Jesus’ Wife” is “hilarious” and “patently fake.” His article in the Harvard Theological Review is online as is Karen King’s response. Some excerpts are given in The Washington Post. Christianity Today runs an interview with Nicholas Perrin of Wheaton College about what it all means.
A fascinating new exhibition will be opening next month at the British Museum on mummies and what we know about them from the latest technology. The changing graphic on the museum website provides a preview. This AP article has more details.
Luxor Times has photos of antiquities recently stolen from the Luxor Temple.
Barry Kemp has posted a report from the latest season of excavations of the Great Aten Temple in Amarna.
