Reformed faith salsa style

I thought of you when I read this quote from “Jesus, the Final Days: What Really Happened” by Craig A. Evans, N. T. Wright –

“in the first century and was executed under the authority of Pontius Pilate, the governor of Judea and Samaria. Though this may be common knowledge among scholars, the public may well not be aware of this. Objections, though, still persist. In fact, a recent book has recycled the odd notion that Jesus wasn’t really executed but actually faked his death, with the assistance of the Roman governor and a few others, and then fled to Egypt. Proof of this assertion, it is claimed, is found in two letters said to be written in Aramaic and alleged to have been found under a house in Jerusalem forty years ago. These writings are alleged to be carefully preserved by a collector whose name cannot be revealed and who lives in a city that cannot be disclosed. Of course, neither the author of this fantasy nor the owner of these letters can read Aramaic or possesses the requisite expertise to verify ancient writings. Regrettably, the utter silliness of this scenario escapes many in today’s reading public.”
