The metal nails with that Jesus Christ could have been crucified were found in Jerusalem. It was officially announced by a researcher Arie Shimnor. He commented on the event by the fact that in the burial cave of the period of the first century that serves as the resting place of the high priest of Judea Caiaphas, ancient objects, which are based on metal, were found. A special analysis showed that these items are nails, and they have traces of chemical and organic components.
Such traces could be present if the nails were in living human flesh. Sophisticated biochemical analysis revealed that the discovered ancient nail could be located in the heel bone of a person.
The scientists linked the conclusion to the fact that it was this metal witness of the past that became the nail with which Jesus Christ was crucified. The material left on the tip of the nail has also been compared to the material found in tombs. It fully corresponded to the human remains present in the tomb.
An additional research also revealed the presence of wood particles on the nail. And the scientists call this fact another confirmation of the hypothesis that the find may in fact be directly related to the crucifixion of Christ.
For the first time, the archaeologists began to make strange fragments associated with the possible history of Jesus during the excavations begun in 1990 at the burial site of Caiaphas. According to the New Testament, it was he who organized the conspiracy to kill Jesus Christ.
When the nails were discovered, some scientists immediately suggested that they could not have anything to do with the crucifixion of Christ for a number of reasons. And, most likely, the discovered nails are directly related to the tomb of Caiaphas.
However, a unique study, completed last week, found confirmation of a previously assumed fact: the nails were used to crucify a person. Microscopic fragments of bone were found among the rust and deposits that formed on the nails over time.
