Wow, talk about a blast from the past. In my very first post on PaleoBabble, back on May 1, 2008, I blogged about the so-called Jesus Tomb and the mathematical work used to defend the tomb as belonging to Jesus’ family.  You can check out that link for the peer-reviewed analysis of the statistical work before checking out this update on the statistical work (warning: this is an offering to math nerds who read this blog; the rest of you normal people, like me, won’t get as much out of it).

Thanks to Mark Goodacre of Duke and his NT blog for the post that brought this to my attention.
