Archaeologists: We found piece of Jesus’ cross

posted by Donna Calvin

Calvin’s Commentary: Whether this is or is not a piece of the Cross that Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ was crucified upon remains to be seen. I have no idea and neither does anyone else at this point if it is actually a part of that Cross upon which Jesus Christ suffered, bled and gave up His Spirit for the salvation of every human beings’ sins – conditionally, that is. To benefit from what Jesus Christ did for us, one must first repent by confessing their sins to God, changing their sinful ways, and asking that Jesus Christ’s Blood to cover their sins so they can be acceptable to God the Father in Heaven.  That penitent must accept that Jesus Christ is the One-True Messiah and Jesus Christ is the Only Way to God the Father in Heaven.

Additionally, one very important thing I want to make clear is the First and Second Commandments of the One-True Triune God – we are not to venerate anything other than God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Ghost.

  1. [Exodus 20:3] Thou shalt have no other gods before me.

  2. [Exodus 20:4] Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: [5] Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; [6] And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.

For more complete information on how to accept Jesus Christ as the propitiation for your sins and be cleansed by the blood of Jesus Christ, and to be saved from the flames of hell for all eternity, go to:

The Sinop discovery is hardly the first alleged piece of the cross on which Jesus was crucified, and many churches claim to have discovered a piece of the “true cross.” According to legend, St. Helena found the cross in Jerusalem and distributed the pieces to churches in Jerusalem, Rome and Constantinople (now Istanbul).

Archaeologists digging in the ruins of church near the Black Sea found a piece what they say might have been part of Jesus’s famous cross.The relic was discovered at the seventh-century Balatlar Church, in Sinop, Turkey, inside a stone chest.

“We have found a holy thing in a chest,” said lead archaeologist Professor Gülgün Köroğlu.”It is a piece of a cross.”

“This stone chest is very important to us,” said Köroğlu, who is an art historian and archeologist at Turkey’s Mimar Sinan University of Fine Arts. “It has a history and is the most important artifact we have unearthed so far.”

The project has unearthed more than 1,000 skeletons and the chest in question has been taken to a lab for study.

The Sinop discovery is hardly the first alleged piece of the cross on which Jesus was crucified, and many churches claim to have discovered a piece of the “true cross.” According to legend, St. Helena found the cross in Jerusalem and distributed the pieces to churches in Jerusalem, Rome and Constantinople (now Istanbul).
