Archaeologists have uncovered evidence that indicates the trial of Jesus occurred near the Tower of David in Jerusalem’s Old City.
The newly-released information began to be uncovered 15 years ago with the plans to expand the Tower of David Museum in the Old City. As archaeologists began digging they uncovered what appeared to be the site of the famous biblical trial. After years of further excavations and delays, the site is finally open to the public for viewing.
Historians knew that the site had previously been used as a prison during the time of the Ottoman Turks and the British rule, but it wasn’t until recently that they uncovered the site’s supposed original purpose.
According to New Testament scholars, the location of the trial of Jesus is where Jesus was just before he died. In the Gospels, Jesus was brought before Pontius Pilate in a military general’s tent (known as a praetorium in Latin).
This discovery presents a new problem for Christianity as a whole; for centuries Christians have thought that the Antonia Fortress was the site of Jesus’s trial and death. The Fortress is the first stop on the nine Stations of the Cross on the Via Dolorosa, the road that Jesus traveled as he carried the cross from his trial to his crucifixion. The last Station of the Cross is the Church of the Holy Sepulchre.
If Jesus was actually tried at the archaeological site near the Tower of David rather than the Antonia Fortress, pilgrims have been walking the wrong path and the Via Dolorosa will need to be corrected.
The site of Jesus’ trial and crucifixion have long been under scrutiny, and no historian has ever been able to make a definitive statement as to the exact location of these holy sites. While the church has yet to comment on this most recent discovery, it is likely that this wont be the last time a new discovery is made regarding the whereabouts of Jesus Christ.

The Catholic narrative to the history of Jerusalem is a pack of lies. From A to Z.
First and foremost. When Roman Catholic pilgrims walk around in the Old City, they can not walk in the footsteps of Jesus. The Ancient city was destroyed by the pagan Roman Emperor in 70 A.D. Later several despotic kings and rulers burnt and destroyed whatever was left of the original city of King David.
The Pope is the successor of the Pagan emperor, who called him self “Pontifex Maximus”. Druing the crusades, the Papal onslaught on Jerusalem from 1099 to 1291 A.D, the Papacy falsified all historical records of ownership to this land. And presented him self as the divine owner of ‘The holy land of Palestine”.
The Pope also build a lot of new Churches and buildings, and created a new history of where and what “Christ” had done in these buildings. Some of these building were never removed by the Muslims, who had no objection to the Papal falsification of hisory, as long as all traces of the true Messiah were removed from the records.
When the Jews began to returned home to the promised land in the late 19-century, the Ottoman Empire ruled over a wasteland called “Southern Syria”. Few if any Arabs paid attention to this area, who was neglected and left for decay.
During the home coming of the Jews, the ancient ruins were rebuilt. The present streets in the Old City lays 8-10 meters above the ruins of the original city.
After the fall of the Papal Kingdom of Jerusalem in 1291 A.D, The Pope’s shifted their eternal capital back to Rome, the epic center of paganism. When Israel was re-birthed in 1948, the Pope refused to recognize the state of Israel. He continued to called this area “Palestine” a name given to this land by the pagan Roman Emperor.
Only after Israel survived the Arabian onslaught in 1967 and 1973, the Vatican changed its views. Now the Pope decided to work through the terrorist organization PLO, who in 1964 was given the “Holy order” to continue the struggle to liberate “Palestine” from the occupation of the Jews. Only in 1993 the Vatican established diplomatic relations with the state of Israel. Today the PLO has been honored with a seat in the United Nations, a bid to legalize their claim to “Palestine”.
To recognize the Pope in the Vatican as a true representative for Christianity, is to white wash antisemitism in the name of “Christ”. My message to my dear fellow Israelis, is that the Pope do not represent the Messiah. He has always been a representative by a deadly copy-cat, the ultimate deceiver of not only Jews, but the whole mankind. Yeshua is the Messiah. We can expect no one else.
