In 1925 Wilhelm Froehner died, leaving behind a collection of more than 3400 ancient artifacts, the most famous of which was the "Nazareth Inscription." Froehner's inventory notes for this Inscription merely state: "This marble was sent from Nazareth in 1878." A new article traces the provenance of this artifact to provide an answer as to how it came into Froehner's possession. The "Nazareth Inscription" is a marble tablet with a Greek inscription, an edict of an unnamed Caesar, declaring the stealing of bodies from tombs to be a capital offense. Given the mid-first century AD date of the artifact, many scholars believe it is a response to the resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth and the rumour that had been deliberately started that the disciples had stolen his body (Matt. 28:13).
