The Titanic Fact and The Tomb of Jesus

The Titanic Fact and The Tomb of Jesus…

A few years ago, the director of “The Titanic” called a press conference announcing a discovery that was supposed to shake the world and disprove the Gospel.

What was it? The discovery of the “real tomb” of Jesus, full of the bones of Jesus and his family. The media swarmed around it.

It turned out that it was all based on the fact that there seemed to be an inscription reading, “Yeshua bar Yosef,” or “Jesus son of Joseph.” Israeli archaeologists scoffed at the “revelation.”

The fact is “Yeshua” and “Yosef” were among the most common names in first-century Judea. It would be as ludicrous as going through the records of everyone born in an American city named “Joe” with a son named “John” – and concluding that they all had to be the same person.

The claims were dismissed and this “titanic theory,” promoted by the director of “The Titanic,” hit its iceberg and promptly sank. It was just the latest of two thousand years of attacks against the resurrection.

The attack failed. The resurrection stands. And nothing will overcome it or the one who walks in it.

“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” John16:33

Be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might – Take on the day and all its challenges with confidence in your Messiah who overcame the world.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
