From Jesus to Christ
This is an Easter article from March 20/28 2005 Newsweek. I personally think Meacham makes some good points and has a good grasp of many of the issues. Yes, if the body of Jesus could have been found, that WOULD have discredited Christianity. And believe it or not, there was more pressure to discredit Jesus in his day than there is today. So, James Cameron, if the remains of Jesus were available for finding, they would have been found. But they weren't. And Jesus was not discredited. And the claims of the disciples and Paul of resurrection appearances are valildated by the subsequent changes in behavior and life.
Some folks don't like the article. Here is one critique.
