This is an extremely interesting find and could end up being very controversial for those who have been lead to believe that Jesus never married.

Reading the article - the archaeologists got permission to drill here though The find is 200ft away from an earlier discovery known as the Jesus Family Tomb, which caused a huge amount of controversy after it was uncovered in the 1980s.

TextArchaeologists exploring a 1st century Christian burial chamber have discovered an ancient inscription on a coffin lid which they believe could prove the site is the final resting place of Jesus. Using a remote-controlled camera connected to a robotic arm to probe below a tower block in Jerusalem, the archaeologists were staggered to discover a set of 1st century 'bone boxes'. The lid on one of these limestone boxes, also known as ossuaries, carries an inscription in Greek which could be translated as 'Divine Jehovah, raise up, raise up'.

TextThe tomb in question is dated prior to 70 CE, when ossuary use in Jerusalem ceased due to the Roman destruction of the city. Read more: www.dailymail.co.uk...


Looks like a very exciting find - 2012 - do we finally have the return of the Messiah - is this what was meant?

When a great lightning strikes from east to west for all man to see you will know the Messiah is here.

Interesting find nonetheless.

Well, of course, there is no resting place of Jesus since he rose to the Heaven's with his physical body, so try as people might, but they will never find the bones of Jesus.

And, Jesus will come back to earth the same way He left --from the Heavens. He arose to the Heavens when He left, and will descend from the Heaven's when his 2nd Coming arrives --and both times with His physical body.

That being said, I think if this "find" is telling those who listen with Spiritual Ears anything, is that, trying to find He physically bears no Fruit, while looking Spiritually is The Way. It also may be a wake up call for those who haven't found Christ as yet, to start looking since these are the End Of Days.

I agree - and I think many would also agree with you. His spirit went up to heaven but we need to wait and see what comes of this.

Wouldn't that be nice if it we're true?

It's amazing what people believe.

I'm disgusted by this species.

Not following?
Your disgusted that the bones of jesus may have been found, or disgusted that people think he physically flew into the sky like the ending of some hokey magic show finale?

This.


I don't doubt Jesus was real and probably did some pretty cool stuff, healing, whatever - but I don't care for religion at all. Period. It's obsolete and detrimental to the expansion of this society in every way.

So what on earth are you doing on this thread? Or is it purely the archaeology you are interested in? I notice your other post on Collective Consciousness demonstrates your open minded approach yet ........?

Hey, I'm not here to troll your thread, I am anti-religion by all means, however you all have the right to believe in anything you like

However I am flagging this for future reference, I'm interested in te archaeology etc, but
It would be interesting if it did turn out to be a bloke named Jesus.

If Jesus had a tomb there would have been Christians making pilgrimages there for almost 2,000 years now. You can see Muhammad's grave, you can see Buddha's grave, no one knows for sure even where Christ was buried.

Kinda hard to grow a cult-like following at a tomb your body only rests in for 3 days.

What is it with the Daily Mail constantly regurgitating months old, if not, in some cases, years old archaeological news? Either that, or this is the second or third such tomb that has been attributed to Jesus and his family!

For future reference, for those who are unaware of this fact:

I generally agree with you on principle, however, I was about to bring up your beliefs on universal consciousness and such to show that you also are demonstrating unfounded and by some measures, "insane" thinking.
So, you dismiss..quite harshly mind you, people religion as all but functionally retarded. Then you turn around and start discussing your own beliefs elsewhere which some could say are equally as filled with nonsense.

Hypocrisy mate. Don't mean to offend, and don't mean to discourage your beliefs..rather, someone like yourself should at least empathise with the religious types to have their own beliefs without any evidence. Not saying you should heart all fundys..just not become so annoyed at them when its a glass house/rock situation.

I am happy that the MSM is at long last reporting on this. However, the discovery was made in 1979-80. I made a post on it:
Biggest Conspiracy of them All, Jesus is Dead and Buried (posted on 8/31/10)
Of course, this will be dismissed by mainstream Christianity as nonsense, and lies, and the Holy Roman Church has probably already paid out a few million to keep it quiet. It's hard enough to convince a Christian that the man is not a God, much less that he was a flesh and blood man, who bled, and died, and was buried in a tomb, not "beamed up" to Heaven on a cloud, or even a spaceship.

Permission was granted as quoted:




TextThe pair obtained permission from the Israeli government in 2010 to use the robotic arm to drill holes allowing them to explore the surrounding area. This led to the discovery of a separate chamber which they named the 'Patio Tomb', as it sits almost directly below the patio of the building. Read more: www.dailymail.co.uk... DHxe

Ofcourse the scientific community and skeptics worldwide just cannot believe he is who he claimed to be and resurrected and ascended.

Why is it these people discount the last 30 generations of christians who believe in him? They do not understand that he still communicates with us. They will forever try to prove he is dead until his return and then they will get a rude awakening.

He successfully prophecied the destruction of the Temple and jerusalem 40 years before it happened, do they really think that he just had a lucky guess? To get that many details he prophecied right?

This will never be on the "news," as Religions run a great deal of the media outlets, and will spend any amount to keep this all nice and under wraps. How many other discoveries have been "classified" and hidden away from people forever?
