Easter, along with Christmas, are the two times of the year when major media inflict upon us stories of dubious religious value in a wild attempt to resonate with a religious audience. But occasionally those stories do have credible content, such as the current CNN series Finding Jesus, which is supported by a book of the same name, written by David Gibson and Michael McKinley.

This CNN series examines six holy objects to see what they can tell us about the story of Jesus, such as the Shroud of Turin, the James Ossuary, the Gospel of Judas, pieces of the true cross, and some ancient bones connected to John the Baptist. Some are more credible than others, but all are carefully examined and offer a window into the gospel story of Jesus’ ministry.
