Lost Tomb of Jesus

I found this blog on another site and it said EXACTLY what I want to say, so with permission (and Joe Biden watching... here it is.

James Cameron is a famous movie mogul. He claims to have found the tomb of Jesus. He also claims that Jesus was married to Mary Magdelene and had a child with her. Hmmm. This sounds familiar. Oh, right. The DaVinci Code. Cameron's a little late to this party.

A Hollywood director will today unveil three coffins he claims were those of Jesus, his mother Mary and his 'wife' Mary Magdalene. Cameron says he has proof that Jesus married Mary and that she bore him a son, Judah, who was buried alongside them.

The Lost Tomb of Jesus, made for the Discovery Channel, will be shown in the U.S. this week and later in Britain by Channel 4.

Today, Cameron is holding a press conference on what he describes as 'one of the greatest archaeological finds of all time'.

Crucially, he is not denying the resurrection - as there…

This is the season of the award shows. Golden Globes, Screen Actors Guild, and soon the Academy Awards. "I'd like to thank my manager and my wife and my other co-actors and..."

Last night when the Colts won, the owner Jim Irsay, and head coach Tony Dungy both thanked God on national television for God's help in the victory. To be fair, Dungy merely thanked God for the energy to play the game.

I don't see a problem is proclaiming one's faith on national TV. It's not like they are trying to convert people; they were just proclaiming their faith.

Earlier in the day Australian Aaron Baddeley won the golf championship in Phoenix Arizona, the FBR. He too thanked God and gave Him the credit for strengthening him to succeed in Scottsdale.

Of course, the bloggers are having a go at any religionist, but why not thank God. Why not thank God for strength and courage? Why not thank someone far outside yourself for all …

Full moons were the way the Jewish people counted days of the month. In only two months from now (from Shevat to Nisan) we will celebrate Passover. If you live near Sydney, or want to join us during that time, we will conduct our annual Passover banquet on the Wednesday of Passover, 4th of April in Randwick at the Town Hall. Reservations are required. Ring 9388. 0559 in Sydney to book in.

Nature teaches us many things, not only dates. Look how bright the moon looks, although it has no natural light of its own. All that we are seeing is a reflection of the sun onto the surface of the moon.

Similarly the Tasman Sea is reflecting the beauty of the full moon, but it has no light of its own.

God calls us to reflect His nature and to reflect His glory. What a miracle and what beauty that is. When you see the beauty of a person, the glory of their Creator is what you are seeing. And He is worthy of all praise, amen?
