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 don't believe, because I don't see any reason to. There's as much evidence to suggest the existence of the biblical portrayal of Jesus as there is to suggest the existence of fire breathing dragons. What I know is that it is physically impossible for one to simply heal others by using the sense of touch... It is physically impossible to simply rise from the dead, and go to live in the clouds. *SNIP* Never underestimate the power of a good hug. SINcerely,

Ah....I gotta respond to this. There wouldn't be a "Hey Zeus" if it weren't for Jesus. You've got your history wrong. Yes, there are MANY Latinos with that name. Do you honestly think they thought up that name separate from the historical figure? Just because it's pronounced different from English doesn't mean that isn't where they got the name from. Unless you want to explain where they got the names for Jose (Joseph) Miguel (Michael) Tomas (Thomas) ....... I can add a few more if you wish. I hate to break this to you, but there would still be the name Jesus without the eccentric man who came... [More]

Sorry Judasim 101 actually teaches us that they did. Belief in the eventual resurrection of the dead is a fundamental belief of traditional Judaism. It was a belief that distinguished the Pharisees (intellectual ancestors of Rabbinical Judaism) from the Sadducees. The Sadducees rejected the concept, because it is not explicitly mentioned in the Torah. The Pharisees found the concept implied in certain verses. Belief in resurrection of the dead is one of Rambam's 13 Principles of Faith. The second blessing of the Shemoneh Esrei prayer, which is recited three times daily, contains several refere... [More]

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 25 I know that my Redeemer lives, and that in the end he will stand upon the earth. 26 And after my skin has been destroyed, yet in my flesh I will see God; 27 I myself will see him ...

Another link: http://www.dailymail...ting-place.html 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

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).
