I just saw this book (Jesus Family Tomb book) on amazon and a page about it on the internet.  I was wondering what anyone else thought of it?  Is this the tomb of Jesus of Nazareth, Mary, Mary Magdelene, Matthew, Judas, the son of Jesus?

According to most scholars, there is no reason to believe that it is. It's hasn't stopped a Discovery Channel special and a book.  For a quick summary of some of the problems with the claim: http://dev.bible.org/bock/node/106

I would say it is highly unlikely.  There is of course the dispute that Jesus rose bodily into heaven.  If so, not his boby there.  The dispute as to who Mary M. was and what role she played.  But if the story she was his wife, etc , then she would have been burried in S. France.  As to his mother?  and the dispute that he had brothers (James the good and others).  So as I said, highly unlikely.

Hi, SatAset,

Sorry to be responding to this in such an untimely manner, but I missed this until now....

Well, this is just one Greek Orthodox man's opinion, but I strongly doubt that it is. 

First, in a rare example of consensus, all four canonical gospels agree that Jesus Christ was buried in the tomb owned by Joseph of Arimathea. 

Second, in another example of consensus of all four canonical gospels, Jesus Christ rose from that tomb, sometime before dawn on the Sunday following his death.

Finally, if one wishes to search for a tomb belonging to Jesus Christ's family, why not look where they allegedly lived, i.e. in a Galilean villiage or town called Nazareth?  Jesus was only visiting Jerusalem; neither he nor his family resided there.

Regards,
Jim

Thank you!

Jim!  Hi!  ::waves::

I was thinking of you as I went to a Greek Orthodox Church for the first time for a field work project for one of my religious studies classes. 

It was very neat.
