10 Don McClainW. 65th St church of Christ - March 4, Stephen Pfann, president of Jerusalem's University of the Holy Land and an expert in Semitic languages, told National Geographic News... "I don't think it says Yehoshua [Jesus]. It says Hanun or something,"

11 Don McClainW. 65th St church of Christ - March 4, Professor Martin (Szusz) Department of Land of Israel Studies and Archaeology Bar-Ilan University In 1996, when the British Broadcasting Corp. aired a short documentary on the same subject, archaeologists challenged the claims. Amos Kloner, the first archaeologist to examine the site, said the idea fails to hold up by archaeological standards but makes for profitable television.... "They just want to get money for it."

12 Don McClainW. 65th St church of Christ - March 4, Professor Martin (Szusz) Department of Land of Israel Studies and Archaeology Bar-Ilan University “It makes a great story for a TV film," he told The Jerusalem Post. "But it's impossible. It's nonsense.” “The names on the caskets are the most common names found among Jews at the time.”

13 Don McClainW. 65th St church of Christ - March 4, “The names on the ossuaries are very common percent of names of women are Mary; Joseph and Jesus (Joshua) are among the top four male names. The presence of these names in a tomb would not have been rare. The name Jesus has been found in dozens of tombs over the years. Further, we have no evidence that this is a family tomb; it could have been a communal tomb, or a neighborhood tomb.”

14 Don McClainW. 65th St church of Christ - March 4, William Dever, an expert on near eastern archaeology and anthropology, who has worked with Israeli archeologists for five decades, said specialists have known about the ossuaries for years.... “The fact that it's been ignored tells you something, It would be amusing if it didn't mislead so many people.” Professor Emeritus University of Arizona.

15 Don McClainW. 65th St church of Christ - March 4, Jesus Family Tomb Believed Found Jennifer Viegas, Discovery News “The human remains were analyzed by Carney Matheson, a scientist at the Paleo-DNA Laboratory at Lakehead University in Ontario, Canada. Mitochondrial DNA examination determined the individual in the Jesus ossuary and the person in the ossuary linked to Mary Magdalene were not related...

16 Don McClainW. 65th St church of Christ - March 4, Jesus Family Tomb Believed Found Jennifer Viegas, Discovery News... Jacobovici and his team suggest it is possible Jesus and Mary Magdalene were a couple. "Judah," whom they indicate may have been their son, could have been the "lad" described in the Gospel of John as sleeping in Jesus' lap at the Last Supper.”

17 Don McClainW. 65th St church of Christ - March 4, F “... How can they say this is Jesus’ DNA?... there is no way to know if this DNA matches the DNA of Jesus of Nazareth until they’ve got some DNA from the latter to match it with the DNA of the former. F How likely is it that the early Christians built and sustained a tomb of Jesus if they — at the same time — were declaring his resurrection and ascension, and were undergoing persecution for following him?... Unlikely to the extreme. Professor in Religious Studies at North Park University

18 Don McClainW. 65th St church of Christ - March 4, The DaVinci Code, (plagiarizing the book “The Holy Grail), argues that Jesus married Mary Magdalene, had one or more children, (specifically a daughter), and emigrated to what is now southern France. The “Lost Tomb of Jesus” claims that Jesus and Mary Magdalene were married, had a son and was buried with other members of the family in Jerusalem.

24 Don McClainW. 65th St church of Christ - March 4, “Are these men, who helped transform the moral structure of society, consummate liars or deluded madmen? These alternatives are harder to believe than the fact of the resurrection, and there is no shred of evidence to support them.” - Paul Little

25 Don McClainW. 65th St church of Christ - March 4, “The disciples had nothing to gain by lying and starting a new religion. They faced hardship, ridicule, hostility, and martyr’s deaths. In light of this, they could never have sustained such unwavering motivation if they knew what they were preaching was a lie. The disciples were not fools and Paul was a cool- headed intellectual of the first rank. There would have been several opportunities over three to four decades of ministry to reconsider and renounce the lie.” - J.P. Moreland

26 Don McClainW. 65th St church of Christ - March 4,  The only thing that would have caused men who had “fled” to preach Jesus would have been the ultimate confirmation.  They did not steal his body. They could not if they would and would not if they could. Liars do not live like those men lived and liars do not die like those men died.

27 Don McClainW. 65th St church of Christ - March 4,  There Is A Demonic Agenda By Many Scoffers To Undermine The Scriptures  They Are United Only In Their Agenda!  The Apostles, Disciples, Historians, Archeologists, and Enemies All Testify –  Jesus Is Not In ANY TOMB – HE IS ALIVE!!!!
