Easter Monday

Jakemaxwel in the comments of a recent post alluded to Shimon Gibson, Israeli archaeologist, whose new book, Final Days of Jesus: The Archaeological Evidence, is getting quite a bit of press over the Easter season. In this clip, CNN's Ben Wedeman takes us to Jerusalem as Gibson points out why the traditional route of the Via Dolorosa is misplaced.

James Tabor, Chair of the Religious Studies Department at the University of North Carolina and author of The Jesus Dynasty, gives a favorable review of Gibson's work at the TaborBlog.
