Jesus Tomb Statistics One More Time April 7, 2008

Randy Ingermanson wrote me today with his latest statistical study on the Jesus Tomb.

Randy Ingermanson wrote me today with his latest statistical study on the Jesus Tomb. It has been made because all the statistical work has been redone recently, including work by the original statistician, Andrey Feuerverger, in the periodical The Annals of Applied Statistics (Volume 2, Number 1, Publication Date: March 2008; see this link). Jim Tabor, the historical consultant on the Tomb special, emailed me last night on the same issue. The recent issue in Annals has looked at this in detail. See Randy’s summary at:

He now argues that this tomb has a 2% chance of belonging to Jesus’ family and that the statisitics of Feuerverger are still not accepted by any of the other statisticians because he accepts as a given the assumptions of Jacobovici, which most people reject.

    I’m new to this website and I saw you had posted a summary of PD and I have a couple of questions about the movement. I’m a prospective Th.M student for Dallas and was curious about PD churches in the area (if they exist?) as well. If you would open that up it would be wonderful. Of course, if it is open and I have missed it please excuse my inexpierence.

    Most churches that are PD do not make a point of it. The way you can tell is to note how they work with the gospels and prophets and just do not talk about the future.
