The Lost Tomb Of Jesus

The most famous death in history is the death of Jesus of Nazareth. 2,000 years ago in first century Jerusalem he was crucified by the Romans, the Gospels tell us he was buried in a tomb and two days later Marry Magdalene one of his closest disciples found the tomb empty.

But according the Gospel of Mathew there was another story circulating after Jesus’s death and though gospel calls it a lie it was rumoured that Jesus’s disciples secretly took their masters body, presumably to give him a permanent burial. If this is true, according to first century burial practices in Jerusalem Jesus’s body would have been taken to a rock human family tomb.

Given that he was crucified for insurrection the reburial would have been done in secret by his closest disciples. His body would have been shrouded and left to decompose, one year later his disciples would have returned joined by his family for the final burial ceremony where he would have been placed inside a family tomb forever.

The Lost Tomb of Jesus makes a case that the 2,000-year-old “Tomb of the Ten Ossuaries” is in fact this tomb.
