An Israeli geologist has claimed he has ‘confirmed’ the existence and authenticity of a tomb belonging to Jesus and his son in Jerusalem.
Speaking to New York Times, Dr Arye Shumron unearthed that after extensive chemical tests, he said he has linked the James Ossuary – a 1st- century chalk box that some believe hold the bones of Jesus’ brother – to the long disputed ‘Jesus Family tomb’ in the city’s East Talpiot neighbourhood.
Dr Shumron suggests that Jesus was married, fathered a child and that a physical resurrection did not take place.
“I think I’ve got really powerful, virtually unequivocal evidence that the James ossuary spent most of its lifetime, or death time, in the Talpiot Tomb.” He said.
According to geoarcheologist Dr Shimron, “the ‘son of God’ was buried with nine other people, including ‘Judah, son of Jesus’ and his wife, named Mary.”
