9780007245673: The Jesus Family Tomb: The discovery that will change history forever

Were the remains of Jesus's body found over 25 years ago and the truth hidden? Now, ‘The Jesus Family Tomb’ tells the shattering story of what may very well be the greatest archaeological find of all time.

‘The Jesus Family Tomb’ is the most exciting real-life archaeological detective story ever told. In 1980 a crypt was accidentally discovered in Jerusalem. Inside were ossuaries (bone boxes) with inscriptions bearing the names of Jesus of Nazareth, the Virgin Mary, Mary Magdalene, and Judah, the son of Jesus. The artefacts were recorded and catalogued and then locked away for over a quarter of a century.

But the tomb itself wasn't destroyed – it is under the foundations of a modern apartment. In 2005, documentary filmmaker Simcha Jacobovici gained permission to break the floor and re-enter the tomb. Together with top forensic archaeologist Charles Pellegrino and the team involved in the original discovery, he started an earth-shattering investigation that will shock the Judeo-Christian world.

Destined to grab international headlines and raise fundamental questions about the origins of Christianity, we participate in one of the most controversial investigations of an archaeological finding in history.
