Tomb Exploration Reveals First Archaeological Evidence of Christianity from the Time of Jesus - Predates Gospels - Apparently
Researchers have found something curious - a tomb dated prior to 70 CE, when ossuary use in Jerusalem ceased due to the Roman destruction of the city, with markings that if Christian as the scholars involved believe, represent the earliest archaeological record of Christians ever found. According to a SciDaily report, the engravings were most likely made by some of Jesus' earliest followers, within decades of his death. Together, an inscription and a Jonah image testify to early Christian faith in resurrection. The tomb record thus predates the writing of the gospels.
