Caiaphas Was a Real Guy and All

High priest of Jerusalem is featured, er, prominently in the Gospels

The ossuary.(WP/AP)

A recently authenticated 2,000-year-old ossuary—who took Latin and can tell us what goes in ossuaries?—likely proves the historical existence of Caiaphas, scientists say. In the New Testament, Caiaphas is the Jewish high priest of Jerusalem who plays a crucial role in the killing of Jesus. It apparently is the ossuary of Caiaphas’s granddaughter. Scientists conducting extensive laboratory tests are convinced it is not a forgery. The scientists also, however, found nothing dispositive of the fact that Mel Gibson is still a schmuck.

I disagree that Mel Gibson “is a schmuck.” A schmuck has a holy and useful purpose. It is used to give pleasure and to create life. Mel Gibson is a jerk, an anti-Semite, and a fool. But a schmuck he is not.
