LOS ANGELES, April 29 /PRNewswire/ -- A remote mountain tomb and relics
from 1st century Jerusalem have been discovered in southwest France.
Among them are a simple pottery drinking cup and a small ointment vase
that were said to have been used at the wedding of Jesus and Mary Magdalene
over 2000 years ago.
According to the priest who hid them away a century ago, they are
sacred relics -- the true Holy Grail -- which symbolized this secret
They have been analyzed by both the British Museum and Dr Gabriel
Barkay of Bar Ilan University, Jerusalem, who said:
"It is possible that artifacts excavated by the Templars on Temple
Mount would find a way to Europe. The finds in this chest are really
intriguing and it is really something that inflames the imagination."
The tomb contains a mummified corpse lying under a shroud with the red
cross of the Knights Templar. Initial DNA testing has revealed it to have a
Middle Eastern origin.
These finds were made as the result of the discovery of a cache of
papers, hidden by a French priest at the end of the 19th century. They
revealed that he had discovered a tomb that had compelled him to break with
his Church and Faith. He said:
"The resurrection of Jesus was a trick, it was Mary Magdalene who took
his body from his tomb. Later, the body of Jesus was discovered by the
Templars and then hidden three times. Not in Jerusalem. The Tomb is here.
Parts of the body are safe."
These finds, and the remarkable story that led to them, can be seen in
a new documentary film, BLOODLINE which premieres on May 9th at the Village
East Cinema in New York City, and then on May 16th at the Laemmle Sunset
Five Cinema in Los Angeles before a nationwide release.
Director, Bruce Burgess, will be showing the relics at the News
Conference alongside his producing partner Rene Barnett and a distinguished
panel of archaeologists, forensic experts and members of the Church.
