Tomb Time

Another year, another candidate for "Jesus's final resting place." While interesting in a "so that's how they buried Jews back then" sort of way, it won't be his tomb. Whatever else I may think about Christianity, I am completely convinced nobody ever found Jesus's body. The religion would've turned out very differently if his first followers had a genuine, filled, tomb to gather around.

True. The odds of finding His tomb, even if marked Yeshua bin Yusef, and even if you don't believe in the Resurrection, hover just slightly above zero. Finding a grave marked Yeshua bin Yusef (Jesus son of Joseph) would be about as uncommon in Judaea 2,000 years ago as finding a tombstone marked John son of Bill today.
