There have been several archaeological research conducted to obtain the finds that confirm the NewTestament. There is plenty of evidence of Jesus in archaeological history. Actual sites and artefacts testify the presence of Jesus Christ in the past, revealing his life, teaching, death, and resurrection. There is evidence that his birthplace is Bethlehem. Similarly, several other evidence archaeological finds support the scriptures and tell us about the real Jesus.
Tomb of Jesus
The Church of the Holy Sepulchre is considered a historical site by many scholars which cover the locations of crucifixion and burial of Jesus Christ. The tomb is said to have once held the body of Jesus. It is located in Jerusalem, and the tomb covers a shrine that covers the tomb where Jesus was put to rest. When the tomb was first opened in 2017, the researchers used a light-based technique to show that the quartz on the limestone tomb was last exposed to light in AD 345. It backs up the notion that the tomb was built around the era of Constantine’s regime.
Coins with rare looks
The archaeologists have found coins that were hidden for over 1,400 years in a long-buried village in Jerusalem. They also found tons of other artefacts to add to the proof of the existence of Jesus and his followers. The Israeli archaeologists discover the village which is believed to be known before as Einbikimakube. They found a rare cache of coins from the Byzantine era. The coins are believed to be from 604-609 because of the images of the emperor engraved on the coins. With the number of artefacts archaeologists have found, they believe that they can reconstruct Jesus’ life from the Church of the Nativity.
Shroud of Turin
The Italian researchers and experts have come up with new answers to how Jesus looked. A research was conducted on the Shroud of Turin, upon which they discovered a 14-foot linen cloth which they believe was used to wrap Jesus’s body before putting him in the tomb. The shroud is also said to have imprinted the image of Jesus’ face. According to research on the shroud, Jesus is thought to be taller than an average man from the 1st century. Giulio Fanti, professor of mechanical and thermal measurements in University of Padua, Italy, says that Jesus was a long-limbed, robust, beautiful man. He was nearly 5 ft 11in tall while the average height during that period was 5 ft 5 in.
The Pool of Siloam
One of the popular stories of Jesus healing a man, who was born blind, near the Pool of Siloam has an accurate resemblance to the real Pool of Siloam with accurate biblical accounts. In the 3rd century, a church was built above a pool attached to Hezekiah’s water tunnel to commemorate the healing of the blind man. It was reported in John’s Gospel. This pool was thought to be the pool of Siloam until the new discovery of steps to a first-century ritual pool near the mouth of Hezekiah’s tunnel. The archaeologists confirm that this is the real Pool of Siloam.
