Matt 24 watch, 147: Responding to a question on the Talpiot claimed tomb of Jesus and family

In a discussion of the nativity account over the Christmas break, the question of the Talpiot claimed tomb of Jesus and family, in Jerusalem -- not Galilee or Bethlehem -- was raised.

[U/D, Jan 4:] Expedition Bible responds:


Philip Cunningham (who had the original video embed) goes on to provide some relevant notes and a link to Craig's corrective paper on the mathematics in the recent sensationalist video on the tomb:
The Jesus Tomb Math - William A. Dembski and Robert J. Marks II
Bottom line: when the math is done correctly, probabilities that might be cited in evidence for the Talpiot tomb being the final resting place of the New Testament Jesus are not very impressive and would not even achieve a minimal level of significance as gauged by conventional statistical theory.
