Yesterday, we talked about how we can know the location of Jesus' tomb, but what about contemporary claims which state that Jesus' bones have been discovered?
Jesus of Nazareth was, and is, a polarizing figure, mainly due to his claims to deity and his supposed resurrection. Any “new” claims made about Jesus are bound to garner a mass amount of popular attention. Recently, a geologist made a claim that he “confirmed’ the existence and authenticity of a tomb belonging to Jesus and his son in Jerusalem.” If his claims are correct, then Jesus did not physically resurrect, and the empty tomb narrative was a farce. However, given the collective evidence, mainly; the women finding the tomb, the early Christians’ belief in a physical resurrection, the guards lying about the disciples stealing the body, and the location of the tomb, one has a heavy burden of proof in showing that he has discovered the tomb of Jesus with his bones in it; a burden far too heavy to bear. Furthermore, we would expect to hear competing accounts of Jesus' burial due to the fact the main claim was that he was buried in a location many knew about.
We can have confidence that the claims we hear today about people discovering Jesus' bones are false.
