Welcome to the Tomb
of Jesus Christ Website (enter below after reading this message).
Due to demand from our visitors, the information at this extensive website is
also available as a paperback book , under the title, Saving
the Savior: Did Christ Survive the Crucifixion? The
book offers proof that Jesus Christ is dead and buried in Srinagar, Kashmir,
India, and will not be returning to earth.
(See our Book Store).
It is very important to realize, at the outset, that this is a subject that is NOT limited to the "New Age" movement. This site is devoted to serious consideration of the theory [and it is a theory, though evidence appears to be mounting in its favor] that Jesus Christ physically survived the crucifixion as an "ordinary" human being, then traveled eastwards to join Jewish tribes that had been scattered to the northern tier of Afghanistan and also Kashmir, Northern India.
Was it possible to survive a crucifixion? Read the following account from the ancient historian, Flavius Josephus:
|"I was sent by Titus Caesar with Ceralius and a thousand riders to a certain town by the name of Thecoa, to find out whether a camp could be set up at this place. On my return I saw many prisoners who had been crucified, and recognized three of them as my former companions. I was inwardly very sad about this and went with tears in my eyes to Titus and told him about them. He at once gave the order that they should be taken down and given the best treatment so they could get better. However two of them died while being attended to by the doctor; the third recovered." (The Life of Flavius Josephus (Vita), Section 75)|
After surviving the crucifixion, Jesus Christ arrived in Kashmir, where he took up residence for the remainder of his life. There he ministered to Israelite tribes of the area, continuing to preach. He eventually married a woman named Maryan, who bore him children, and, so the theory states, he died at the age of 120 years. His tomb [see picture of his tomb on our home page] is located in the Mohala Kan Yar district of the capital city of Srinagar, Jammu & Kashmir, Northern India, and is called the Roza Bal ("The Site of the Honored Tomb"). The photograph on the homepage is provided courtesy Holger Kersten.
Throughout his travels, it is claimed, he assumed the name, Yuz Asaf (Yus Asaph), a name which, some believe, meant, "Jesus the Gatherer," and he is said to be buried in the Roza Bal under that name.
Please understand the following: This site, and the information it contains, is NOT the property of any particular belief or ism or organization, nor is the idea of a post-crucifixion life of Jesus the invention of any ONE individual. From St. Irenaeus (125 A.D. to 202 A.D.) all the way to Dr. Fida Hassnain, a living scholar, there have been many people who have contributed information concerning the idea that Jesus was seen in "Asia" or India long after the crucifixion.
Work your way through the various site links and off-site links, and we are totally confident that you will not only learn quite a bit, but you will very much enjoy your visit! We strongly suggest that you start with the first link on the "Major Players" page, the Jesus Christ link, then work your way from left to right through the remainder of the links. But you may choose any order. You will enter the Major Players page after you finish reading this welcome message.
From time to time, we will make cosmetic improvements to this site, but you will note that the links that give detailed narrations on sub-topics of this theory use the normal white background with black text. The intent is to ggive the facts, without any distractions.
Though we do like whistles and bells, we wish to avoid the appearance of using those aids as tricks to entice the reader in any direction. So, while we hope to improve our site with such cosmetics, any such improvements will be modest--tasteful, but modest. We want you to learn, not be hypnotized! You may enter below now, or you may wish to click here and browse around first. [check out the nice map just to the left of the picture of the tomb, as well as a film of the tomb!!]. Enjoy!
