Another Response to Dale Martin’s Piece (Skinner)

Yesterday over at the Jesus Blog, the guys posted a response by S. Brian Pounds to Dale Martin’s recent article in JSNT suggesting that Jesus and his followers were armed and were participants in a failed armed revolt. I am waiting to read the response until I finish Martin’s article, but I also wanted to point out Simon Joseph’s response, which was posted on his blog yesterday afternoon. Looks like this article (and it’s coverage in a major public news source) will be fodder for some very interesting discussion in the weeks ahead. All of this is unfolding well ahead of the annual SBL meeting, where I expect this will┬ábe a topic of discussion, at the very least over coffee or drinks.
