The secular humanist left loves every opportunity available to explain away Judeo-Christian values, heritage, and culture.
Because, clearly, if God doesn’t exist, it’s a life of licentious laissez faire for everyone.
But, to borrow a phrase from Al Gore, truth oftentimes is inconvenient.
So it happens once again that science, via archeology, forensics, and history, has confirmed details surrounding the traditional site of Jesus’ grave, aka the Holy Sepulchre.
Recent tests run on the limestone and mortar inside the grave date back to early Roman times, consistent with the era in which Jesus was crucified.
Though, don’t stay up late hoping for a headline story from CNN.
Here’s more from PJ Media…
The recent renovations at the Church of the Holy Sepulcher have revealed that the traditional burial site of Jesus Christ does in fact date back to Roman times:
Over the centuries, Jerusalem’s Church of the Holy Sepulchre has suffered violent attacks, fires, and earthquakes. It was totally destroyed in 1009 and subsequently rebuilt, leading modern scholars to question whether it could possibly be the site identified as the burial place of Christ by a delegation sent from Rome some 17 centuries ago.
Now the results of scientific tests provided to National Geographic appear to confirm that the remains of a limestone cave enshrined within the church are remnants of the tomb located by the ancient Romans. Mortar sampled from between the original limestone surface of the tomb and a marble slab that covers it has been dated to around A.D. 345. According to historical accounts, the tomb was discovered by the Romans and enshrined around 326.
To Christians, this hardly comes as a surprise. The world’s oldest institution traces its unbroken lineage to Jesus of Nazareth, and the gates of Hell have so far not prevailed against it.
