Archaeologists believe they may have located the final resting place of Jesus himself in Jerusalem.

The team had been using a robotic arm to probe underneath a tower block in the city and discovered a 1st century Christian burial chamber. On one of the coffin lids is inscribed the words "Divine Jehovah, raise up, raise up." The find is only a short distance away from the previously discovered "Jesus Family Tomb" which generated great controversy in the 1980s when ossuaries found within seemed to be inscribed with the names of Jesus's family.

"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."

I hate to break this to you, but there would still be the name Jesus without the eccentric man who came and said he was the "Messiah" Jesus. Apparently you are not familiar with Jeshua, or Jesus Ben Sira. Y/Jeshuah is Hebrew/Aramic. Oh and there is also in the bible the character Jesus Justus. Do you mean to say all these names came after Jesus the son of Mary? Because I hate to be the bearer of bad news. SINcerely,

Yes at the end of the age, there was not belief in a resurrection before that time. Jesus rising from the dead is something new, was not part of Jewish belief. Everyone was surprised when the event happened. Thomas would not believe unless he touched Jesus's hands and side, and he did, and believed. peace mark

That is incorrect. There are clear references in the Old Testament to a bodily resurrection: Job 19:25-27 Job is traditionally the oldest book of the bible, yet it is evident even there. Isaiah 26:19 Daniel 12:2 We also have an interesting archaeological find called the or alternatively, , that references resurrection as well. What they didn't believe was that a man who claimed to be the Messiah would use the resurrection to confirm his Messianic claim.

I would believe it, all the names of Jesus`s family were there except for simon and his box could be found yet. Jesus sisters names were never mention in the bible and they would most likey be buried with their husbands

And this is the kind of thread I miss the presence of our member SeanPh who passed a year or so ago; this was his favorite topic and he aways had so much great insight. Miss him and his comments.

The Savior was the first person on this earth to be resurrected. The New Testament contains several accounts testifying that He rose from the tomb (see Matthew 28:1-8; Mark 16:1-14; Luke 24:1-48; John 20:1-29; 1 Corinthians 15:1-8; 2 Peter 1:16-17). When the resurrected Lord appeared to His Apostles, He helped them understand that He had a body of flesh and bones. He said, “Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have” (Luke 24:39).
