    Pretty awesome study and findings.

    Jesus died on Friday, April 3, 33AD, according to an investigation which matches his death to an earthquake.

    The investigation, from the International Geology Review, looked at earthquake activity around the Dead Sea, which is around 13 miles from Jerusalem.

    The Gospel of Matthew, Chapter 27, says that as Jesus lay dying on the cross, an earthquake shook the area, scattering graves and making the sky go dark.

    Now researchers have looked at textual accounts, geological records and astronomical data to find the most likely date for Jesus's death.

    Geologist Jefferson Williams of Supersonic Geophysical, and colleagues from the German Research Center for Geosciences, studied soil samples from the beach of Ein Gedi Spa, next to the Dead Sea.

    Researching the deeper layers of the soil, two earthquakes were detected by looking at the layers of built-up sediment, called varves, which built up each year.

    A widespread earthquake is known to have happened in 31BC, and another one was detected which must have occured between 26AD and 36AD.

    Williams told Discovery that the latter earthquake occurred during 'the years when Pontius Pilate was procurator of Judea and when the earthquake of the Gospel of Matthew is historically constrained.'

    His mission was completed, it was time to write the final verse and chapter with the ultimate exclamation mark, his life for your and my sins.

    It really is amazing. The Earthquakes and Volcanic eruptions going on in America at the same time were pretty spectacular as well. The Book of Mormon documents them.

    That son of god, saviour of the world story began in ancient Egypt about 3500 years before the Jewish version. Fools and the brainwashed believe in ancient god worship.

    Gods opinion of you..


    Psa 53:1 To the Chief Musician on Mahalath. A contemplation. A Psalm of David. The fool has said in his heart, There is no God. They acted corruptly, and have worked out abominable wickedness; there is not one doing good.
