Tomb of Jesus Found?

The location of the tomb of Jesus in Israel just might be known. I first considered this an exaggeration when I heard of it, but I have found out that there is at least something to take into serious consideration.

The Church of the Holy Sepulchre is possibly the true and literal place where Jesus was buried, and was viewed as this area from at least the beginning of the 4th century AD. Jesus was buried outside of the old city of Jerusalem. The tomb located in the Church of the Holy Sepulchre is located outside of the old city of Jerusalem. This tomb was also closed with a large rock (technically, this was typical of ancient tombs of 1st century Israel). Inside this tomb, there is stone benches for visitors to be seated on. According to the gospels, when the women entered inside the tomb, they saw “a young man seated in a white garment” (Mark 16:5). Hmm… I’d recommend reading more by clicking here.

The tomb is also empty. Just sayin’.

  1. A chance? Based on what evidence ?
    What a crock.
    Same sort of nonsense as the claims about bone boxes, and the house in Nazareth.
    All fake news to get believers’ heart rate up and their hands delving deep into their pockets when the collection plate comes around.

    Haven’t you lot been suckered enough by the likes of Ron Wyatt and Ken Ham?

    • “Just in case anyone doesn’t want to read the article …
      …. was in effect ‘borrowed’ by the author of the Gospel of Matthew, and a local earthquake between 26 and 36 AD that was sufficiently energetic to deform the sediments at Ein Gedi but not energetic enough to produce a still extant and extra-biblical historical record. If the last possibility is true, this would mean that the report of an earthquake in the Gospel of Matthew is a type of allegory. “”

      And, if someone *does* want to read the article… They’ll realize Arkenaten is a professional troll. The author, at the end of the paper, notes three different possibilities to explain this, and he takes neither. 1) The earthquake in Matthew was based on the one he found, 2) It was made up based on that earthquake, or 3) the earthquake in Matthew has nothing to do with the earthquake he found.

      “And did all the saints climb out of their graves and go walkabout in Jerusalem as well?”

      Of course.

  2. Thanks for the post. I’m always a bit suspicious regarding these claims for New Testament sites. Many, like this one, were “discovered” by Constantine’s mother’s expedition 300 years after the events took place. These sites are vital to works-religionists who place great value on the material world. I’m interested in archaeology also but I don’t put a lot of stock in these claims. Helen also recovered many relics attributed to Jesus and other New Testament figures that now sit on display in churches throughout Europe, that are obviously bogus.
