The Discovery Channel has announced its TV special in March on “The Lost Tomb of Jesus.” The bottom line is they think the tomb of Jesus, his family and Mary Magdalene has been found. A recent article by Edward Fudge states: “These six names were all popular at the time these folks lived and died.” He also says that of 900 period tombs uncovered around Jerusalem, 71 have included someone named “Jesus” and at least one housed a “Jesus son of Joseph.” He further states that one of every five females in first-century Palestine was named “Mary”.
There is much to prove that Jesus our Lord’s body was not left in a grave.
When Sunday, April 8 rolls around I will not be hiding any eggs or buying any new spring clothes but I will remember the resurrection of our Lord that day and every day!
