“Even the most skeptical scholars acknowledge that Joseph [of Arimathea] was probably the genuine, historical individual who buried Jesus, since it is unlikely that early Christian believers would invent an individual, give him a name and nearby town of origin, and place that fictional character on the historical council of the Sanhedrin, whose members were well known.”
—-William Lane Craig, “The Son Rises”, p. 53
Even the most skeptical scholars accept the probable historicity of Joseph of Arimathea and his burial of Jesus? What is William Lane Craig smoking??? There are a number of scholars who question the historicity of Joseph of Arimathea. These are the kinds of outrageous exaggerations versus bald-face lies that cause many informed skeptics to have little respect for WLC.
