A Biblical scholar and a documentary filmmaker claim to have found the tomb where Jesus was buried.
James Tabor, a Biblical scholar and Simcha Jacobovici, a documentary filmmaker, explored an ancient Jerusalem tomb by using a camera attached to a robotic arm and, according to the London’s Daily Mail, found several limestone boxes or ossuaries, which date from the first century.
One of the boxes has a four-line Greek inscription that could be translated into “Divine Jehovah, raise up, raise up.”
The newly published book, “The Jesus Discovery: The New Archaeological Find That Reveals the Birth of Christianity” by Tabor and Jacobovici chronicles the discovery of the tomb. This spring the Discovery Channel will air a documentary on the authors’ findings.
