A personal journal about teaching the Bible and ancient Near Eastern history/theology/religion/archaeology to university students in New Orleans, and whatever else happens to be on my mind.

Josephus, Joseph, Jesus, and JESUS!!!
One of my students just wrote that Josephus was the historian who gave his tomb to Jesus, and another wrote that Josephus was the mystical fusion of Jesus with his father Joseph. Confusing the matter further, I think one of the guys laying my floors is named Jesus, or he says it often when the hammer misses its intended target.
