There has been new burial boxes that have the name Jesus written on it that was discovered. The Israeli archaeologists are saying it is not Jesus Christ's but it can be linked to Christianity and the Holy Land.
Thorough these artifacts, historians are now able to understand how Jesus may have lived and died. Even before Easter, the Israel's antiquities authority has opened up its spacious storeroom to reporters on Sunday. It was full of dugged up jars and other materials that was used during the time of Jesus. However, there is no direct link of any of the artifacts to Jesus Christ himself, reported ABC . "Today we can reconstruct very accurately many, many aspects of the daily life of the time of Christ," said Gideon Avni, head of the archaeological division of the Israel Antiquities Authority.
There was also an exceptional collection of Byzantine-era coins in the warehouse. It was there since 1,400 years ago, inside a stone wall of an old building. The place where it was found is now called Einbikumakube, as scientists believed stated Washington Post. As Israel is one of the most excavated places on the planet, many things found are somehow related to Christianity and the Holy Land.
There are about 300 digs that take place each year. There are about 50 foreign expeditions from as far as the United States and Japan, the Antiquities Authority said. Each year, there are about 40,000 artifacts that are dug up. One-third of it is evidence of Christianity and Holy Land. As a result, historians can now estimate how long Jesus travelled from places to places, between villages and cities.
After 20 years of digging and learning more about the time of Jesus life and death, historians now can accurately rebuild how the country looked before, Avni said. The artifacts are also some strong clues that Christianism, Judaism and Islam co-existed during Jesus life and death.
