Jesus' Gold

Bedouin Boy Finds Jesus' Gold

by Winsip Custer CPW News Service

Bethlehem. Josef Ibrahim felt like the other Bedouin boy who stumbled upon the Dead Sea Scrolls.  "We all knew that the Frankinsense and Myrr was long gone, but the gold wasn't likely to deteroriate over time," said young Ibrahim, a native of Bethlehem.

"It's perfectly logical that the one hundred and twenty seven pounds of 24 carat gold bars was found in tact."  Each of the 8 oz. bars about the size of a Hershey chocolate bar bore the name of an unknown Zoroastrian monarch with no identifiable markings of the nation over which he ruled.  "It remains a great mystery," said Menachem Peter Christiansen, of the University of Haifa.  "Were it not for the papyrus note wedged between the top layer of bars we wouldn't know who it belonged to.  The note read simply 'Happy Birthday Jesus' in Arabic, but the word 'Birthday' was mispelled by one letter...which is understandable since the presenter came from an area with a different language than Arabic and he may have had trouble translating," said Christiansen.

Moses Jacobin, of the Greater Bethelem Bank and Trust said that it is likely that the 254 heavy gold bars were not able to be taken by Joseph, Mary and Jesus into exile in Egypt during the Herodian slaughter of the innocents...the killing of Jewish first born sons and was hidden for safe keeping.  "With a present value of about $2,641,600 U.S. dollars, had they invested in the bank and had it been in continuous service it is likely that the gold's current value could sink the entire U.S. debt if it had been invested in treasury bills with even a modest interest rate of return."
