Archaeologists find crucifixion-style nail from the time of Christ

A 4-inch crucifixion-style nail dating from the time of Christ has been discovered in an ornate box at a fort that may have been a stronghold of knights who occupied Jerusalem during the Crusades, The Daily Mirror reports.

[...]

The newspaper quotes Christopher Macklin of the Knights Templar of Britannia as calling last summer's find "momentous."

He said evidence the nail had been handled a lot "indicates it was of great interest to many people" and that he believes the original Knights Templar thought it was a genuine artifact from Christ's crucifixion.

I have always been interested in Christian history, particularly if it has anything to do with verifing the truth of the Bible. I will be interesting to see how this find pans out.

I really enjoyed looking over your blog. God bless, Lloyid
