Additional ‘Lost Tomb of Jesus’ Online Resources Featuring Seminary Professor Jeffrey Kloha Available

Concordia Seminary, St. Louis, is pleased to announce the availability of additional online theological resources featuring Seminary Prof. Jeffrey Kloha’s response to the television documentary “The Lost Tomb of Jesus.” The documentary aired March 4 on The Discovery Channel and suggested that archaeologists had discovered the entombed bones of Jesus, Mary Magdalene, and a child who could have been the son of Jesus and Mary Magdalene.

The most recent resource, a video/audio file interview with Kloha titled “In the News,” is available on itunes.csl-edu-staging.mrhxrwi0-liquidwebsites.com. Kloha’s original response, “‘The Lost Tomb of Jesus’: A Perfect Storm?”, written prior to the airing of the documentary, is available at www.concordiatheology.org.

Additionally, an archived audio file of the March 5 interview with Kloha on the KFUO radio program “Issues, Etc.” is available at www.kfuo.org.

“Providing rapid and substantive theological responses to issues such as ‘The Lost Tomb of Jesus’ which challenge main tenets of the Christian faith is a valuable way that the Seminary faculty serves church and world,” commented Rev. Glen Thomas, the Seminary’s special assistant to the president. “The popularity of these resources is an indication of how much they are appreciated.”
