A remote mountain tomb and relics from 1st century Jerusalem have been discovered in southwest France.
Among them are a simple pottery drinking cup and a small ointment vase that were said to have been used at the wedding of Jesus and Mary Magdalene over 2000 years ago.
According to the priest who hid them away a century ago, they are sacred relics -- the true Holy Grail -- which symbolized this secret wedding.
They have been analyzed by both the British Museum and Dr Gabriel Barkay of Bar Ilan University, Jerusalem, who said:
"It is possible that artifacts excavated by the Templars on Temple Mount would find a way to Europe. The finds in this chest are really intriguing and it is really something that inflames the imagination."
The tomb contains a mummified corpse lying under a shroud with the red cross of the Knights Templar. Initial DNA testing has revealed it to have a Middle Eastern origin.
These finds were made as the result of the discovery of a cache of papers, hidden by a French priest at the end of the 19th century. They revealed that he had discovered a tomb that had compelled him to break with his Church and Faith. He said:
"The resurrection of Jesus was a trick, it was Mary Magdalene who took his body from his tomb. Later, the body of Jesus was discovered by the Templars and then hidden three times. Not in Jerusalem. The Tomb is here. Parts of the body are safe."
These finds, and the remarkable story that led to them, can be seen in a new documentary film, BLOODLINE which premieres on May 9th at the Village East Cinema in New York City, and then on May 16th at the Laemmle Sunset Five Cinema in Los Angeles before a nationwide release.
Director, Bruce Burgess, will be showing the relics at the News Conference alongside his producing partner Rene Barnett and a distinguished panel of archaeologists, forensic experts and members of the Church.
Have they dated the corpse yet?
Looks like the same sort of lies that have been peddled for years. It wouldn’t surprised if some of the relics are actually from Jerusalem but I see no reason to believe the other outlandish claims.
“Have they dated the corpse yet?”
Does taking it out for lunch count?
I am sure that if you want to know the answer, you have to see the movie.
This is nothing, just some artifacts with no evidence to connect them to any specific individual and the empty words of a 19th century charlatan.
If the resurrection were faked, then the relics would neither be sacred nor worth hiding.
More Merovingian heresies. Mason, the Vatican and the CIA are conspiring to keep the secret that Jesus ... well, you know the stories.
They claim to have the mummy of the mummy of Jesus' children.
Oh, that's right, he never existed.
Is that a joke? The charlatan existed and his corpse is lying in a well known tomb in Medina IIRC, whatever is left of it.
Another year of listening to conspiracy theorists gone wild.
Just shameless promotion for a blasaphamous movie made by a bunch of Christian haters. Should be IGNORED.
Next week, the ancient remains of pizza boxes from the bachelor's party. Archaeologists spent months looking for the beer keg before they realized that Our Lord probably just told all his buddies to fill their glasses with water and then He waved his hand over them - Heinekens!
Quelle crock du doo-doo!
Ping to read later
Oh, boy! Another Simcha Jacobovici moment!
Here we go again ....
What, they couldn’t get this story out in time for Easter?? They’re slacking this year!

If there is no resurrection of the dead, then not even Christ has been raised. And if Christ has not been raised, our preaching is useless and so is your faith. More than that, we are then found to be false witnesses about God, for we have testified about God that he raised Christ from the dead. But he did not raise him if in fact the dead are not raised. For if the dead are not raised, then Christ has not been raised either. And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins. Then those also who have fallen asleep in Christ are lost. If only for this life we have hope in Christ, we are to be pitied more than all men.
But Christ has indeed been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. For since death came through a man, the resurrection of the dead comes also through a man. For as in Adam all die, so in Christ all will be made alive. ~ 1 Corinthians 15:13-22
