For years, skeptical scholars claimed that the gospel accounts of Jesus’ burial could not be trusted. Why? For one, claimed the skeptics, Roman authorities would never allow a victim of crucifixion to receive the honorific burial described by Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. Instead, crucifixion victims were literally thrown to the dogs, their bodies tossed into mass graves where wild animals scavenged.
But in 1968, building contractors uncovered an ancient burial site that lent credence to the gospel accounts. There they found the body of a young man who had received a proper burial—even though he had been crucified.
This is just one example of how archaeological discoveries corroborate and often confirm the biblical record.
