New Archaeological find reveals the birth of Christianity – Jerusalem

Together with Professor James Tabor of the university of North Carolina and Professor Rami Arav of the University of Nebraska, Jacobovici and his team commissioned a state-of-the-art robotic probe to explore deep beneath a Jerusalem apartment building, discovering never before seen 1st century artifacts. Among the discoveries are the earliest testimony of faith in the resurrection of Jesus, pre-dating any New Testament Gospels, the earliest Christian symbols ever discovered, the oldest 1st century Christian symbol found in Jerusalem, the earliest representation in Jewish art of a biblical story and the earliest record of a teaching, or saying, of Jesus passed on orally, perhaps by someone who heard him say it.

Simcha Jacobovici explains the ornamentation on painstakingly reproduced replicas of the still buried ossuaries and the significance of drawings of the biblical story of Jonah and the whale in regard to faith in the resurrection of Jesus. Jerusalem, Israel. 4-Apr-2012.

“The Resurrection Tomb” will be aired during Easter Week, across the United States and Canada on April 12th (Easter is celebrated on Sunday, April 8, 2012).

Matthew 16:4 – “An evil and adulterous generation seeks after a sign; and a sign will not be given it, except the sign of Jonah. And he left them and went away.

Matthew 12:40 – “…For just as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the sea monster, so will the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of earth.”

Luke 11:30 – “For just as Jonah became a sign to the Ninevities, so will the Son of Man be to this generation.”

Prof. James D. Tabor explains the ornamentation on painstakingly reproduced replicas of the still buried ossuaries and the significance of Greek writings in regard to faith in the resurrection of Jesus. Jerusalem, Israel. 4-Apr-2012.
