« back to classes page
In 1980, a bulldozer accidentally uncovered a first-century tomb in Jerusalem.  Of the ten ossuaries (stone coffins) found inside, six bore inscriptions: Jesus son of Joseph, Maria, Mariamene (the name by which Mary Magdalene was known), Joseph, Matthew, and Judah son of Jesus.  Dismissed by archaeologists as coincidence, the ossuaries were warehoused and forgotten.  Twenty-five years later, additional study was done on the remains inside the ossuaries, which included DNA analysis among other scientific investigations.  We will discuss the genetic results and their ramifications by watching a documentary about this incredible archaeological find
