Jim still isn’t convinced Simcha and Tabor are correct

And should he be. As much as some like Tabor, many people he is following a conman, er, conperson in Simcha (I’m not using the dollar sign because Simcha said it was an attack against his Jewish ethnicity. I don’t want to be accused of that, because that’s not my goal. I just think Simcha is out to make money, regardless of truth).

Anyway, read something of Jim’s thoughts here.

  1. What’s to prove? That James Tabor is not a scholar, a gifted writer, the head of the Dept. of Religious Studies at a highly respected university?? That he’s not motivated by the love of money???

    No thank you. He’s all the things you apparently are not, a man of principle and good will. Nothing more need be said. Or written!

      • Listen, freedom to speak, is a constitutional right, but we are not talking about legalities here. And whether or not SJ and JT “are correct” about their discoveries is something else again. My beef is with the anonymous accusations of Just Sayin’ masquerading as “free speech.”

        So-called “commentators” should stick to the issues without resorting to that kind of personal assault. It’s called being respectful without name calling or mislabeling people as you have done with me. I’m hardly James’ acolyte, or anyone else’s.
