Bauckham on the Talpiyot Tomb Inscription

April 6, 2012

I’m pleased to feature here a guest posting by my friend and colleague, Richard Bauckham, on current scholarly options for reading/interpreting the inscription on the Talpiyot Tomb “B”.  Bauckham was consulted by James Tabor and the team that discovered the tomb and prepared the Discovery Channel TV programme presenting their views, but, as he has indicated in previous comments, Bauckham takes his own view of how to regard the tomb and bone-box, and how to read the inscription on it.  His article surveys the several proposals, however, and is (as typical of him) a model in scholarly care and judiciousness.
