Can box of bones jolt faith in Jesus? |

Can box of bones jolt faith in Jesus? | "Could a Christian still believe in the resurrection even if they had found the bones of Jesus?

'Paul would, and so would I,' says John Dominic Crossan, author of 'God & Empire' (HarperSanFrancisco, $22.95). 'If you said to Paul, 'We found the bones of Jesus. Does that destroy the resurrection?' I think he would say, 'Get a life. ... It's not about his bones, it's about his wounds.' '

Arguing the opposite point, the Rev. Victor Pentz, senior pastor of Peachtree Presbyterian Church in Buckhead, says that finding Jesus' bones would shatter Christianity."
