Tomb

The Jesus Family Tomb

For some of you, this might come as a bit of a shock but the actual physical tomb of the Jesus of History was found in 1980. If that’s news to you, I can tell you why! Nearly everyone involved in Biblical archaeology has a ‘dog in the fight’ and none of them give a damn about the Jesus of History.

Divinity Colleges and Christian Universities award their faithful students prestigious sounding degrees and PhDs. To ordinary people, these pseudo-academics appear to be real scholars. But, like sleeper agents, when something is found that challenges the official ‘Christ’ narrative, they spring into action and make sure that it just ‘disappears’.

The Talpiot Tomb

Jesus Family TombThe Jesus Family Tomb, otherwise known as the ‘Talpiot Tomb’ is a great example of how stupidity, incompetence and pure larceny passes as ‘science’ in the 21st century.

The Jesus Family Tomb is unusual in that it has a sign of Jonah cut into the rock above the door. One of the ossuaries (bone boxes), found within the tomb, has a different version of the sign of Jonah engraved on the side of the box. Another tomb, less then 200 feet away, was discovered in 1981. One of the ossuaries in that tomb also has the sign of Jonah engraved on the side of the box.

The Lost Tomb of Jesus

It wasn’t until almost thirty years later that Dr James D. Tabor and Simcha Jacobovici were able to produce a film detailing the discovery of the ‘Jesus Family Tomb’. Despite their best efforts the agents of pseudo-academia managed to discredit and obscure the discovery. The result is that very few people have seen the film or know anything about the Jesus Family Tomb.

In order to find the truth, let’s look at some of the facts:

Dr James D. Tabor served as Chair (2004-2014) of the Department of Religious Studies at the University of North Carolina. He is currently Professor of ancient Judaism and early Christianity. Simcha Jacobovici is adjunct professor in the department of religion at Huntington University.

During construction of a housing estate, near Jerusalem, a 1st century tomb was accidentally unearthed. Ten ossuaries were discovered – one of which was stolen. Initial studies were so badly done that the local children were later found playing football with the skulls from inside the tomb.

Despite the concerted effort of many of the pseudo-academics involved and several high profile court cases, after forty years we can now say that the tomb is genuine.

Names

We know from historical texts that people in Judah often used Greek and Roman names as well as Hebrew or Aramaic names. Therefore, we can say that there would have been approximately 1500 possible names available in the first century. This would mean that the chances of finding a tomb with all seven names of a family together at, or around, the same time would be millions to one.

 

Ossuaries

The fact is that the tomb, the ossuaries and the inscriptions have been proven to be genuine. Therefore, the only possible conclusion is that the ‘Jesus Family Tomb’ is indeed genuine.

Seven ossuaries were found with name inscriptions detailing what we already know to be members of the Jesus family:

> Ossuary #80/503 Yeshua bar Yosef – Aramaic for (Jesus son of Joseph)

> Ossuary #80/505 Maria – written in Aramaic script, but a Latin form of the Hebrew name ‘Miriam’ (Mary)

> Ossuary #80/504 Yose – a diminutive of ‘Joseph’ mentioned as the name of one of Jesus’ brothers in the New Testament (Mark 6:3) ‘Joe

> Ossuary #80/501 Yehuda bar Yeshua – Aramaic for ‘Judah son of Jesus’ (Bar Jesus {son of Jesus} – in Acts 13:6)

> Ossuary #80/500- Mariamene e Mara – this reads ‘Mariamene known as Mara’ or ‘The Lady Mariamne’ A corruption of the name ‘Mary Magdalene’?

> Ossuary – Matya – Hebrew for ‘Matthew

> Ossuary – Yakov ben Yosef akhui diYeshua ‘James son of Josef, brother of Jesus’ – was stolen. Proved in court to belong to the original ten

It is true that taken on their own, most of those names are reasonably common but not in connection and not found together. My name is reasonably common in Spain but to find a tomb with all with the names of three generations of my current family would be impossible.
