Tomb of Jesus dated for first time, built far earlier than originally believed
quote:

The scientific dating tests on the shrine, which began in October 2016, were the first of their kind carried out on what the faithful believe to be the resting place of the Christian Messiah. The tomb itself had not been opened in centuries and had previously been thought to have first been built during the time of the Crusaders, and so no older than 1,000 years.


quote:

The church was completely destroyed in A.D. 1009 and rebuilt, which had led to conventional academic thinking that it was unlikely the church could be identified as the same site consecrated by a Roman delegation in the third century.

But results of the modern-day scientific tests have put the date of the building of the cave far closer to the Roman consecration of the site in A.D. 325. A Roman temple was built at the site two centuries earlier, but according to historical record, this was later razed with excavations beneath showing the cave of the burial of Christ, now known as the Edicule.

The reopening of the crypt for the first time in centuries had already led to startling discoveries. Scientists were amazed to discover, beneath marble cladding that covered a1555 burial bed, a far older broken marble slab engraved with a cross.

That's pretty damn cool.

That would put it right around the time of Constantine, which fits well with what we know about the era.

Seems like the date keeps getting closer and closer to the time of Jesus.

Jesus, OG troll.

Gotta hand it to him. Y'all won't believe a scientist standing right in front of you, but you'll believe a book from thousands of years ago, that he didn't even write, with no proof of authenticity and no contemporaneous historical confirmations, whatsoever.

When he rose from the dead, did he leave his bones behind? That must have scared the shite out of everybody (aka Sam Kinison).

re: Tomb of Jesus dated for first time, built far earlier than originally believed
why would we believe a scientist today about something that happened 2000 years ago when we have a history book that was written back then? Dummy

Yeah, I was thinking Jesus's tomb should be as empty as Al Capone's vault.

And you'll just as easily believe some string of theories and studies by people you don't know and won't ever know, with no proof, the likes of which are disproven all the time.

Same fricking thing only you're too arrogant and blind to see it.

This thread is about scientists dating a historical site, you dolt.
