A journalist and documentary film maker, Simcha Jacobovici, believes he has found the nails that were used to crucify Jesus Christ 2000 years ago and his documentary film gives what he calls solid evidence for his claims.

This Orthodox Jewish film maker also claims that Caiaphas, the high priest at the time of the crucifixion of Jesus, later converted to Christianity and when he was buried had the nails used to crucify Jesus buried with him.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

The claims by a journalist in Jerusalem that he has the nails used to crucify Jesus Christ lacks real evidence for their authenticity, but the subject of Jesus being crucified is key to understanding the end of times scenario that can be found in Bible prophecy.

Jerusalem journalist and documentary film maker, Simcha Jacobovici, has made several claims about the burial site of Jesus Christ and the nails used to crucify Him, claims that have been disputed by world renowned archaeologists. Even in light of this opposition to his claims, Jacobovici moves forward with promoting his so-called archaeological finds and has garnered the attention of those who do want to believe these claims are true even if the evidence is not sufficient to authenticate the claims. However, Jacobovici, an Orthodox Jew, has brought to the table for all to consider the reality of the death of Jesus Christ by crucifixion as recorded in the Bible.

I personally do not believe the recent discovery of the nails used to crucify Jesus Christ are the real thing, at the same time, all four gospels in the New Testament record every detail of this historic events. These same gospel accounts reveal that Jesus Christ did raise from the dead and that He is alive today and has promised to come back to the earth one day. Revelation 1:18 is the personal claim by Jesus Christ of His resurrection. Verse 19 and throughout the rest of the book of Revelation unfolds the prophecies of the end times, many of which are about to be fulfilled.

The death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ gives us assurance that Jesus Christ can tell us the future. Bible prophecy will indeed be fulfilled.
