    1. The Jesus Discovery is a follow up to The Jesus Family Tomb Jacobovici and Pellegrino The current book is by James Tabor and Simcha Jacobovici different authors, but still receiving a similar treatment, since Tabor was involved in the investigations in the earlier book The Jesus Discovery is the tale of investigations of a tomb very near the original Talpiot tomb, which they call the Patio tomb The original Talpiot tomb is now termed the Garden tomb, but this second tomb is deemed the Patio tomb [...]

    2. There ve been claims of actual physical evidence of the existence of members of Jesus family since three ossuary tombs to the south of Jerusalem were exposed by construction workers in 1980 This, the third and most recent of the books I ve read on the subject, goes so far as to link the three, their contents and a looted ossuary which may have contained the remains of Jesus older brother, James, all together, suggesting that now we have the ossuaries, and some of the actual bones, of not only Je [...]

    3. I have followed the works of Tabor and Jacobovici for some years now and receive regular communications from their websites and have read previous publications from them as well as Shimon Gibson My interest in the historical Jesus goes back many decades as does my abhorrence of many orthodox religions Therefore my review of The Jesus Discovery may not be altogether unbiased Although I am a little late in getting around to reading this book, it was first published in 2012, I have followed the dev [...]

    4. Good history is never the enemy of informed faith Seems true enough to me but for many Christians the physical resurrection of Jesus is an essential principle of their religion The Jesus Discovery would be a difficult read for these followers as it suggests that if such a resurrection did take place, it would have been of the spiritual, astral form of Jesus, a visionary experience for his disciples.I was raised as a Catholic, but never felt at home amidst all the dogma, even as a small child I l [...]

    5. With my beginning stages of Young onset dementia, I am doing good to remember the fact that I read a book, let alone be able to articulate my past thoughts about it I will try to find the book refresh my thoughts, then remember to come back here and document them.

    6. The book discusses two tombs, the Patio Tomb and the Garden Tomb which, the author believes, contain the skeletal remains of Jesus, Mary and other members of his family Jude son of Jesus is skeletal find.The book discusses how bones were put into an ossuary, a stone box The book goes into detail how how bodies were put into tombs, how they underwent natural decay and how the bones were then gathered up and put into the stone structures, sometimes with the name of the person on the outside The pe [...]

    7. I approached this book backwards, starting with the scholarly debate that followed the book and Tabor s and Jacobovici s claims The various articles, blog posts, and rich commentary from the various scholars who have investigated the claims are interesting and generally unsupportive of T s J s claims So I began reading this book believing that T J were stretching the evidence about as far as it could go, such that their main points might fall into the category of, Well, I suppose that s possible [...]

    8. The authors discover the meaning of several ossuaries found in several grave sites in the Jerusalem area The artistic inscriptions are filled with Christian imagery, making them the earliest known Christian burials between 50 and 70 AD.In a risky proposition, they argue the found the bones of Jesus, his family, and possibly a child of his While they rightly argue this does not really affect the whole concept of the resurrection, it does go against established Christian doctrine While the author [...]

    9. I first ran into this theory watching the movie by the same name I seemed to get out of the book or perhaps I just paid closer attention.No specific answers but lots of interesting ideas Since data always trumps theory I ll be interested to see what additional data turns up in the future.

    10. This is THE Must Read Authoritative Text on the Jesus Family Tomb The Jesus Discovery is one must read for anyone researching the historical Jesus Tabor and Jacobovici provide an exhaustively researched, impeccably documented accounting of the tombs at Talpiot While their interpretation of the evidence is honest and insightful, they also maintain a sensitivity and high regard for Christian doctrine and belief The tenacity and courage of Tabor and Jacobovici, along with their peers, to persevere [...]

    11. Very interesting archeology at work here The authors claim that a tomb discovered in 1980 but inadequately studied and a nearby tomb which was discovered but never studied are tombs of the members of Jesus family and early important Christians An unusual confluence of names and nicknames which matches Biblical and extra biblical sources fuels the claim that this tomb was that of Jesus immediate family including Jesus, his brother, son , mother and Mary Magdeline A case is made for the well known [...]

    12. I have followed the progress of biblical archeologyI found this book fascinating Approaching it an open mind and coming to my own understanding of the facts is how I relate to these new discoveries Just like I study and discuss in fellowship and bible study to apply the bible to my life Everyone is permitted to form their own opinions God gave us freewill As I continue to learn I continue to understand every discovery and interpretation that God has made available to me.

    13. A wider and later version of the case presented in The Jesus Family Tomb that the Talpiot tomb discovered in 1980 is, in fact, the tomb of Jesus of Nazareth A quick read, with some glossing over of things that were explained in detail in The Jesus Family Tomb e.g patina analysis, name cluster statistics to make room for new archaeological evidence from the Patio tomb I enjoyed the writing and the story And I am convinced that they have made a strong case for the Tomb being that of Jesus, and hi [...]

    14. I listened to this book on CD It kept my attention It seemed to describe very well the procedures used in investigating two tombs near Jerusalem I did not at all agree with the conclusion based on DNA analysis of bone chips from two ossuaries, a man and a woman buried in the Jesus family tomb were not related to each other, proving that Jesus married Mary Magdalene and did not rise from the dead.

    15. I enjoyed this book The topic of this book is a big interest of mind Something outside of mainstream history I was a little disappointed in how material in this book was also covered in the book The Jesus Family Tomb The book did look at the theology of the start of Christianity.If you want to read both, enjoy, but you may wan to read only the one of them.I would recommend the book

    16. I feel like this book made very large leaps and assumptions in trying to support the authors hypothesis I am not opposed to the idea of Jesus being married and fathering a child, as this would have been typical of Jewish men during his lifetime, and certainly not sinful in any way However, I don t feel like this book provides enough evidence to support this claim, or the claim that they located the bones of Jesus himself If nothing else it is an interesting read.

    17. This was a rather interesting book about finding thou grave of Jesus and his family Lots of work went into the gathering of information but that same information was repeated over and over again It was a good read just keep skiping the repeated parts and you will find some interesting information on the subject of the resurrection of Christ.

    18. The third bookI read from Tabor that has solidified my conviction that our Jesus story has been shaped by tradition and theology than fact It is an truly worthwhile book to test your faith in light of the facts It ll change the way you read the biblical account or listen to sermons in your church.

    19. Interesting read believable I m always skeptical about this kind of stuff though It s like finding a face on Mars Besides, what s proven today is swept aside for the actual truth tomorrow I would be pretty cool to find out that the tomb your condo was built over was Jesus

    20. This book will give you something to think about It certainly did that for me I don t want to spoil anything, so I ll just say that this book did something I like it looked at the historical side of Jesus and compared it to his portrayal in the Bible.

    21. Although I just finished reading this, I want to go back and take my time reading it again Definitely gives you something to think about I enjoy Dr Tabor s work and Simcha Jacobovici is The Naked Archeaologist how can you lose

    22. Although they re dealing with a subject many people of faith would immediately reject, the authors did a fantastic job of showing how their discoveries and interpretations could confirm the most staunch believers It s an interesting read, a great book, and I would read it again.
