How the past can influence the present

A 3-ft.-high tablet romantically dubbed "Gabriel's Revelation" could challenge the uniqueness of the idea of the Christian Resurrection.

Yet for now, at least, Gabriel's Revelation must take its place among a slew of recently discovered or rediscovered objects from around the time of Jesus that are claimed to either support or undermine Scripture but are themselves sufficiently, logically or archaeologically compromised to prevent their being definitive.

In the past when a slew of new discoveries are made and for which the discovery site and method is unknown this often points to forgery. When it is of key historical event the changes multiple - when they contradict one another - the change goes us trice.

This may be one. Influence on the present? Undercutting a key Christian concept.

Leave it journos to miss the point...

Whether Christ's resurrection was "unique" or not is beside the point.
I mean, it doesn't undercut anything, certainly not anything vital.
