"Although the [Talpiot] tomb dates to the 1st century, from the beginning of the investigation [for the film entitled “The Lost Tomb of Jesus” and for a book (co-written with Charles Pellegrino) “The Jesus Family Tomb“, [which] argued that the tomb of Jesus and many of his family members had been found in the East Talpiot suburb of Jerusalem] it was clear that there was an ancient break in, probably around a thousand years ago [during the Crusades].
People have long speculated that the Templars had discovered something in Jerusalem that was anathema to the Church, and that they were able to blackmail the pope with their secret knowledge. Could it be, we speculated, that the Templars’ secret was the Talpiot tomb itself? Could it be that the Templars knew that the Church of the Holy Sepulcher was not the real tomb of Jesus? Could it be that when they found the Talpiot tomb, the Templars knew that they had found the bones of Jesus?"
Scott F. Wolter revealed a late 12th/early 13th century Crusader coin, minted in Jerusalem, that clearly has the façade of the tomb on it. The coin will also be featured in Wolter’s upcoming updated edition of his book, “The Hooked X: Akhenaten to the Founding Fathers”. On the coin, the tomb’s antechamber, which had been destroyed when bulldozers accidentally came upon it during construction, is clearly evident. The antechamber is framed by two pillar like structures with circles on top. In the 1980 photo of the tomb, I think one can still discern a circle on the right. In any event, the mouth of the tomb is treated on the coin as a face, presumably the face of Jesus. Most importantly, the little unique “chimney” over the chevron is perfectly visible on the coin. Here we have a perfect match between a Crusader coin and the Talpiot tomb. It’s either a smoking gun connecting the Talpiot tomb to a Crusader order, thereby reinforcing its connection to Jesus, or another in a long string of coincidences".
