Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Jesus Discovery shows how a recent major archeological discovery in Jerusalem is revolutionizing our understanding of Jesus and the earliest years of Christianity.

In 2010, James Tabor, Simcha Jacobovici, and a team of archaeologists, geologists, and forensic anthropologists, explored a previously unexcavated tomb in Jerusalem from the time of Jesus. They found the earliest evidence for a belief in the resurrection of Jesus, based on what appears to be the oldest Christian iconography ever discovered, affirming a belief in the resurrection of Jesus that pre-dates the Gospels.

The stunning discovery also reopens the historical discussion of a nearby tomb previously identified by the authors as the family tomb of Jesus. That tomb contained ossuaries that may be those of Jesus, Mary Magdalene, and members of the family of Jesus. Was Jesus married, and is his family buried in this tomb?

The Jesus Discovery is the firsthand account of one of the most important archaeological discoveries ever made and what it means.

Synopsis:

They made a remarkable discoveryand#8212;two ossuaries, or bone boxes, one carved with the earliest known image of Jonah; the other displaying a reference to resurrection. Since the newly discovered ossuaries can be reliably dated to before 70 AD, it is possible that whoever was buried in this tomb knew Jesus and heard him preach. In addition, the newly examined tomb is in close proximity to the so-called Jesus Family Tombandlt;Iandgt;, andlt;/Iandgt;and its discovery increases the likelihood that the and#8220;Jesus Family Tomband#8221; is, indeed, the real tomb of Jesus of Nazareth.
