Archaeologists 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'.

Another carries a drawing of a fish with a stick figure in its mouth which is believed to refer to the story of Jonah and the Whale - one of the very first Christian stories.

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.

Archaeologists then claimed it contained ossuaries inscribed with names associated with Jesus's family.

Didn't he fly away? I wonder how far he got when he realised he couldn't breathe.

Hmmmm, that's pretty interesting.  'Divine Jehovah, raise up, raise up' sounds like if that's him buried there, where the legend came from that he was God and rose from the dead, that's what they were hoping for by the sounds of that inscription, but if they had time to make that box that way and write that, it doesn't seem to go along with the biblical story at all, maybe the hope became the "truth" at some point and the legend became history.

I must admit that I'm having difficulty seeing the picture as a fish with a stick figure.  I can see that the portion on the right could be the tail of a fish, although the vertical striping seems a bit odd for detail.  To me, it looks more like a vase or similar object on its side.

One's reality is another's nightmare.

An interesting article, but it merely confirms what we already knew and scholars always had a hard time accepting, Christians were around as early as we always said we were.

Or it could be something far simpler, God, raise him up, raise him up. Which is what we all do when we ask God to take into his arms, those we love who have passed away.

Well said Jor-el. :tu:  That would be what I would have thought.

It could be, I'm just going by their translation though, sounds like it's telling Jehovah to raise up, not Jehovah to raise something up, but that's just by what they translated, but then why wouldn't they call him Jesus?  You might have a good point.

Jesus will come down when we least expect it. Open the coffin and prepare for doomsday :devil:

So do I have time for a last smoke and a pancake or what?

Jesus ascended.  So how could there be a final resting place?

"And they will say he is in the secret chambers, but do not go. Where the carcus is, there the vultures will gather. For as lighting from the east can be seen even unto the west, so shall the coming of the son of man be"

Some things are true, even if you dont believe them.
