New Testament proved true? Jesus’ burial slab discovered? The Biblical findings of 2016

Based on the new claims, it is believed that historian finally managed to prove that the New Testament is accurate and real.

There is no doubt in most scholars minds that the Bible is not entirely, well… gospel.

But a lot of what is contained in the Holy Book is true, or at least inspired by significant events or places.

Some great strides have been made this year in piecing together the accuracy of the Bible, and Express.co.uk examines the most significant Biblical archaeological findings of 2016.

Jesus’ burial slab

Perhaps the most important finding in the history of Christianity was made in just the last few months when archaeologists excavating the alleged Tomb of Christ found the burial slab which Jesus was laid to rest on.

Restoration workers who were plying their trade on the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem stumbled upon the rock surface which Jesus was apparently rested upon.

The slab has not been seen since 1555 when it was enclosed in the Church of the Holy Sepulchre which contains the Tomb of Christ.

Christians claim following his crucifixion, Jesus was laid on the slab, or “burial bed” and enclosed in a tomb before being resurrected and ascending to Heaven several days later.

Centuries later, followers of Christ took the slab to what is now the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, where it has remained hidden for almost 500 years.

National Geographic’s resident archaeologist, Fredrik Hiebert, said: “The marble covering of the tomb has been pulled back, and we were surprised by the amount of fill material beneath it.

“It will be a long scientific analysis, but we will finally be able to see the original rock surface on which, according to tradition, the body of Christ was laid.”
