Crucifixion of Jesus Was Condemned, Not Approved, by Jews, Excavation Shows

The crucifixion of Jesus was condemned, not approved, by the Jews who were his contemporaries, a startling discovery by Hebrew University archacologists reveals.

A few days ago a group from the university uncovered a set of caves which date from the period of the Second Temple. In them they found inscriptions and emblems from the time of Jesus, which, beyond a doubt, expressed the Jews’ extreme dissatisfaction with the sentence passed upon Christ by the Romans.

The discovery has caused a sensation among Christian archaeologists here. Representatives of the Palestine Government’s antiquities department are rushing to the scene to study the sarcophagus and its inscriptions and symbols.
