REUTERS NEWS – DATELINE JERUSALEM (01-04-2019) – BONES OF JESUS HAVE BEEN FOUND
“In a hastily convened press conference today, the Israeli Antiquity Authority has confirmed the discovery of what is believed to be the 2,000-year-old skeleton remains of Jesus of Nazareth. Found in an ossuary in a tomb near the Church of the Holy Sepulcher – and dated to the time of the first century – the bones are of a crucified man approximately 30 years of age. This finding is expected to call into question the faith of millions of Christians worldwide.”
STOP – This is not a real news story… but, what if it was? What would such a story mean to us who follow Jesus? Would the Christian faith survive? Would your faith survive? And, if it did survive, why? (I’ll tell you a secret... if the story were true, mine would not.)
As we continue in our series “The Death of Death,” a study of 1 Corinthians 15, we’ll take a look at a real-life news story which claims Jesus’ remains have been found, and see what the Bible has to say about it.
