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.
