Israeli geologist Dr Arye Shimron claims the Talpiot tomb, where Jesus and the rest of his unknown family are said to have been buried, has been successfully linked to a chalk box from the time.
The family tomb emerged in 1980 and there has been heated debate as to where it originates from.
Yet Dr Shimron believes he has now proved that the tomb was the burial site for the “messiah” – as well as his wife and son.
The geoarchaeologist claims Jesus, considered by many as the “son of God”, was buried with nine other people.
And in the tomb, bones have been found with the inscription “Jesus, son of Joseph”.
Yet more astonishingly another inscription lists his wife, named Mary, and even more controversially another names his son, “Judah”.
Dr Shimron concluded his results by testing chemical samples from the chalk box, the James Ossuary, which was around during the Second Temple period – when Jesus was said to be alive.
The owner of the ossuary, Oded Golan, was accused of forging an inscription after its discovery more than 30 years ago. But the claims were dismissed in 2012.
