archeologistclaimed Tuesday to have identified what could be the remains of some of Christ’s disciples in a firstcentury burial chamber beneath a block of apartments in Jerusalem.
A team led by Simcha Jacobovic, a Canadian documentary director, used a robot to photograph a number of limestone burial caskets, which may provide an unprecedented glimpse into Christianity’s earliest days.
But the potential significance of the discovery is almost certain to be overshadowed by controversy, with Jacobovic using it to bolster his widely disputed claims to have identified the bones of Jesus and his family nearby.
