First, I have to say, if you aren’t reading The Sacred Page, you’re doing yourself a big disservice. Barber, Bergsma, and Pitre are all incredibly intelligent Biblical scholars with a knack for wading through nonsense and getting down to good scholarship. I see these guys as a sign that all hope is not lost in Biblical studies.
Here’s Pitre’s post on the significance of the hour of Jesus’ death. It is an awesome post.
