Bible History Daily Features TaborBlog Post: That Other “King of the Jews”
by James Tabor
Several weeks ago I announced that the ever popular Bible History Daily, published via e-mail and on on the Web, has begun a regular feature of republishing selected posts from my blog. I am both honored and also always a bit curious as to which of the 500 or so posts from the past few years they might choose to feature. Today it is a more recent post titled “That Other King of the Jews.” You can see the BHD post here, with links to the original blog post and other items of interest. In this post I deal with the knotty issue of whether either Jesus or his followers claimed he was of Davidic lineage and what that implied in the political-religious world of Herod the Great and his successors.
I highly recommend that my blog readers subscribe to Bible History Daily. It is free and one of the the best ways to keep up with any breaking news related to “Biblical Archaeology,” as well as special features on many topics related thereto. The free subscription also allows you to download a whole series of free e-Books, on a variety of topics. You can sign up here. If you have not spent a bit of time lately browsing the every growing resources of the Biblical Archaeology Society web site you will be impressively surprised at how much is there and what is available free of charge. The web site, under the direction of Noah Wiener, just keeps getting better and better.
