Archaeologists Summon Christian Researchers to Discovery in Mount Olive Cemetery That May be Site of Disciple's Burial

"When they carefully moved the olive tree, they found a white cross with the Greek inscription, 'To The God Jesus Christos.'"

Christian researchers, summoned by archaeological scholars from Egypt, Rome, Greece and Tunisia, are excavating a site in the Mount Olive Cemetery outside the walls of Jerusalem which may hold clues to some of the burials of Jesus' disciples.

According to a report in the Judaistic Review, the mainly Jewish graveyard is where the Jews wait until the Messiah comes to take them home. The summons was reportedly made when a "Christian Cross type headstone" was discovered by a visitor who noticed a stone hidden by an olive tree in the cemetery.

Notes reporter Mitch Ugana, for African News Dimension, "When they carefully moved the olive tree, they found a white cross with the Greek inscription, To The God Jesus Christos. This same inscription, he said, was found in a ruin adjacent to Megiddo prison in Israel, where a mosaic floor also had written in ancient Greek, "To the God, Jesus Christo."

Strangely enough, the article also referred to the far-fetched possibility that the discovery is the site of the "Holy Prepuce," an allusion to the historical belief that Mary, according to supposed Jewish custom, buried the prepuce (the "remnants" taken after a circumcision) of Jesus.
