Christian Gravesite at Mount of Olives January 17, 2007

A Christian gravesite found in Mount of Olives Jewish Cemetery.  Christian researchers were invited to Mount Olive Cemetery, just outside the walls of Jerusalem.  This sacred site made infamous by the biblical story of Jesus last spot on earth, before leaving on a cloud for heaven. 

Summoned by archaeological scholars from Egypt, Rome, Greece and Tunisia, the Christian Scholars are excavating a site which may hold clues to some of the burials of those left behind after Jesus departure.  Although the bible doesn’t specifically state the disciple’s place of interment, Mount of Olives is a reasonable place to expect them to be buried.  The mainly Jewish graveyard is where the Jews wait until the Messiah comes to take them home. 

The finding of a Christian Cross type headstone is what all the fuss is about.  This is so unusual, and had gone unnoticed for so many years; until a visitor noticed a stone hidden by an olive tree at the site.  When they carefully moved the olive tree, they found a white cross with the Greek inscription, To The God Jesus Christos. This same inscription was found in a ruin adjacent to Megiddo prison in Israel, where a mosaic floor also had written in ancient Greek, “To the God, Jesus Christo.”  Some say it may be the burial grounds of the rabbi Jesus himself, but the Christian scholars were quick to point out, that it couldn’t be, as Jesus left on a cloud, as witnessed by Peter, and possibly other disciples, and this was collaborated by two strangers who were present at the time of Jesus passage from earth.  YX is the Ancient Greek Inscription for Jesus Christ. 

The Christian scholars are interested in the find, but both agree that the finding of the possible prepuce of Jesus is a much greater find.  Jesus, being Jewish, and of devout parents would have had his ritual circumcision on the 8th day after his birth.  The prepuce would have been expected to be kept by his Mother Mary, as only she knew for sure he was the son of God.  They surmise she may have buried Jesus prepuce in a ritual box, and in a location where Mary felt it would be safe.  This only remnant of Jesus left on earth, is a subject of great interest to scholars.  What will the DNA reveal and what does this mean for Christian’s worldwide?
