Sorry I didn't reply to this post earlier, i saw it on some history channel i think, and there was some sort of written scripture on the tomb and it translated into "Jesus, the father of Mary" (btw to the person who said Yeshua; that's just how you say Jesus in Chaldean, or Jewish) and they thought the translation was wrong and they just couldn't figure it out...but thats the closest translation they could come to. Oh yeah and it was 3 years ago I remember my history teacher talking about it in the 7th grade after I saw it on TV. Hopefully this answers your question.
I realize Yeshua translates to Jesus, but I believe it is important to mention his real name since "Jesus" wouldn't have been carved into anything at the time and he would have never been called that during his life. Not enough people know that. Thank you that does answer my question I love the history channel.
yeah it was like a few weeks after they discovered king tut's tomb or somethin like that
