Product description

In late 2009 and in 2010, Simcha Jacobovici and James Tabor, with Prof. Rami Arav of the University of Nebraska, explored a sealed tomb in Talpiot, Jerusalem. They discovered several bone boxes, typical of the burial custom of the time, sometime prior to 70 A.D. (C.E.). Two of the boxes contained markings - in one case an inscription, in the other a graphic symbol - that indicate a belief in Jesus' resurrection. The Jesus Discovery explains how this exciting archaeological discovery revolutionizes our understanding of Jesus and early Christianity.
