How true is it that the Tomb of Jesus was found?
I really don’t know if I’ll believe it or not. I saw it over the news a while ago and I was a bit skeptical about that.
I searched it over the net and found a link about the said news from Yahoo.
NEW YORK – To resolve the question of whether the remains of Jesus and Mary Magdalene may have rested in two limestone boxes discovered in a Jerusalem suburb, the filmmakers of a new documentary took novel approaches — including turning to statisticians.
Some religious scholars and archaeologists, however, have not been convinced by the numbers. Filmmakers showed the two boxes on Monday while promoting their documentary, “The Lost Tomb of Jesus,” produced by Oscar-winning director James Cameron and airing on the Discovery Channel on March 4.
It argues that 10 first-century bone boxes, called ossuaries, discovered in 1980 may have contained the bones of Jesus and his family.
One of the boxes even bears the title, “Judah son of Jesus,” hinting that Jesus had a son. The claim that Jesus even had an ossuary contradicts the Christian belief that he was resurrected and ascended to heaven.
