A leading biblical scholar says the oldest sources for the Jesus movement in the Holy Land portray Jesus as a teacher of divine wisdom--not as a foreboding figure with titles of divinity himself. "Jesus the apocalyptic prophet has given way to Jesus the sage," said James M. Robinson of Claremont Graduate School, who claims that scholarship on the historical Jesus is in the throes of a major shift. Divine titles such as "Christ/Messiah," "Son of God" and "Son of Man" abound in the New Testament and are integral to Christianity's understanding of its savior.

Scholars have determined that a book bound in wood and leather and buried under a child's head more than 1,600 years ago is the earliest complete book of Psalms and is one of the oldest books of any kind. "We have for the first time a complete book of Psalms dating from the second half of the 4th century AD, making it the oldest complete book of Psalms ever found," museum director Gawdat Gabra said this week.

Robinson of the Claremont Graduate School, is being published by Hershel Shanks of the Biblical Archeology Society in Washington.

CALL it "The Da Vinci Lode": an almost-anything-goes industry of spinoffs and tie-ins emerging in the shade cast by the mega-bestseller and movie. A researcher says he can prove the story of Adam and Eve actually describes human evolution. A historian says the Holy Grail is buried in an estate near Stafford, England. A documentarian has linked the Catholic Church's sex abuse scandals to satanic images cunningly concealed in the religion's artwork.
