Trial begins for archaeologist accused of forging earliest portrayal of Jesus' crucifixion
By Tom Metcalfe, 7 Feb 2020

A criminal trial has begun of an archaeologist accused of forging a trove of Roman artifacts that allegedly show a third-century depiction of Jesus' crucifixion, Egyptian hieroglyphics and the early use of the Basque language.

Archaeologist Eliseo Gil and two former colleagues appeared this week in a criminal court in Vitoria-Gasteiz, the capital of Spain's Basque Country, The Telegraph reported. They are accused of creating forgeries of ancient graffiti on hundreds of pieces of pottery, glass and brick that they claim were found in the Roman ruins at IruŮa-Veleia, about 6 miles (10 kilometers) west of Vitoria-Gasteiz.

Gil claimed the graffiti on the artifacts showed very early links between the Roman settlement in Spain and the Basque language; he also claimed that a drawing of three crosses scratched on a piece of ancient pottery was the earliest known portrayal of the crucifixion of Jesus Christ.


Not the first time, I'd guess.

1. Fakers, so desperate to prove that Jesus was real and also, they sure want the money that ...

if 'real', such an artifact would command ... it's such a shame since archaeology is a very demanding field, with little pay, and those with little or no conscience such as these 3, sully the hard work of legitimate archaeologists.

4. Most Christians don't know the only canonical gospel evidence for the trinity is a forgery

Without the trinity the whole ĎJesus is godí thing falls apart. But faith has an answer for that. Whenever you donít like what the bible has to say or doesnít say, you just make shit up and pretend thatís what it really means.

Meanwhile some major Christian denominations just leave the forgery in their bibles without any footnote that itís fake. That way they donít even have to pretend.
