Archaeologists Uncover Gate to Biblical City of Zer

Archaeologists have uncovered the entrance gate to the biblical city of Zer during excavations carried out in the Golan Heights over the past two weeks, the Golan Regional Council said Sunday. In recent days, and after a year of recess, a group of 20 archaeologists from all over the world, together with director of the Bethsaida Project, Dr. Rami Arav, and under the auspices of the Hebrew Union College, Jerusalem, conducted new excavations in two different areas of Bethsaida. The ancient fishing village is mentioned several times in the New Testament as a city where Jesus lived and where he miraculously fed a multitude of people with five loaves and two fish.

“The Real Yeshua” or a “Gentile Jesus”?

I have been involved in this discussion about the Jewish Jesus for almost 30 years now and am amazed at how “Fact-Proof” religious people are. In the mid-1980s when someone on a TV show mentioned “the Jewish Jesus,” it would generate thousands of letters and postcards from people wanting to correct the idiot that said it – “Jesus was a Christian not a Jew!” By 2000, thanks to the Discovery Channel, the History Channel, PBS, etc., the tide shifted and when someone mentioned the “Jewish Jesus” people would say, “Of course Jesus is Jewish.”
The problem is that people seemed to think that “Jewish” was an “ethnic thing”, not a “BS thing.” Oh yeah, BS means Belief System. They talked about a Jewish Jesus, but kept saying that he taught a bunch of “un-Jewish things”!
