Support for JC as a real person

The evidence – if this is that – of the existence of one of his apostles supports and lends credence to the supposition that Jesus was a real person.

The Ted Haggard of his era.

Proof it is not, though.

RE: Support for JC as a real person
I realise that copy journalists are not necessarily founts of authoritative knowledge, however it's rather striking how the "apparent discovery" solidifies into the genuine article by the second paragraph. On such slippery language the apologist rumour mill turns...
At the age of five, Skagra decided emphatically that God did not exist.  This revelation tends to make most people in the universe who have it react in one of two ways - with relief or with despair.  Only Skagra responded to it by thinking, 'Wait a second.  That means there's a situation vacant.'

Article never says they found a body or an ossuary of any sort. Secondly the entrance does not look like its been disturbed. This is just more fundamental christian archeological BS.....forgery is huge part of christianity.

Agreed, which brings up the enormous elephant in the room: if there actually was any genuine evidence to be found in support of the historical existence of these characters, why would anyone need to forge some?

(I think my grammar is sound in that little lot.)

There are phony tombs all over the ANE.

This one, for "King David" apparently dates back to Roman times.
