Ron Wyatt claims to have found the blood of Jesus Christ. The blood of Jesus Christ has been tested and allegedly the blood of Jesus Christ turns out not to be human.
The man who claims to have found the blood of Jesus Christ
Ron Wyatt was an anesthetist from the United States, who claimed to have made a number of discoveries relating to the Bible, including Noah’s Ark, Sodom and Gomorrah, Mount Sinai and even finding the Ark of the Covenant. And he claimed to have found the blood of Jesus Christ.
On January 6, 1982, Wyatt said he found what he believed was a crucifixion site at Golgotha, which is also known as Calvary. He then said that on one of the crosses there were human bones and blood that had dripped down into the sand.
Wyatt then took a sample of blood from this rock but never revealed what lab tests showed.
But according to a report by Wyatt’s son, Ron Wyatt Jr, following analysis by a lab technician, it was revealed that Jesus’ blood contained no human DNA.
Test Result of the Blood of Jesus Christ
The man who discovered the blood of Jesus Christ, Ron Wyatt, took the blood sample to a laboratory in Israel. He asked one of his friends who works in antiquities where he should have it tested, and they recommended a good lab that had reliable results.
He took the blood and told them to examine it. After reconstituting the sample, they put it in normal saline—a salt solution—and kept it at body temperature for 72 hours, with gentle swirling (or mixing).
They were able to confirm that it is human blood, and then Wyatt asked them to take some white blood cells from the sample and put them in a growth medium for 48 hours.
In a laboratory in Israel, Ron Wyatt examined the blood of Jesus Christ. He asked one of his coworkers in antiquities if they knew where he could find a good laboratory that does reliable work, and they said “such and such such and such.”
He then took the blood to one of these laboratories, saying “please examine this blood and tell me what you can tell me about it.” The lab staff said: “Well look we’re gonna reconstitute it we’re gonna put it in normal saline and keep it at body temperature for 72 hours with gentle swirling all right.”
Ron Wyatt then said, “I want to be there when you check it out.” And so he was. When they checked the blood out, they said: “It’s human blood we can tell that…” They did whatever tests they need to do, and then Ron Wyatt said: “Take some of the white blood cells and put them in a growth medium and keep them at body temperature for 48 hours.”
Human blood has 46 chromosomes in it: 22 autosomes from the mother’s side and 22 autosomes from the father’s side. The child inherits an X chromosome from their mother and either an X or a Y chromosome from their father.
According to Wyatt, the blood they found had 23 chromosomes from the mother’s side and one Y chromosome from a source, not a human male. This means that all of the child’s physical characteristics were determined by the autosomes on his mother’s side, but his maleness was determined by this one Y chromosome that came from something other than a human male.
They also found that this blood is alive and asked whose blood it is—the answer being: it’s the blood of your Messiah.
Section: Religious figures dismissed the findings
Bible teacher Jason Zelda dismissed claims made by Ron Wyatt, saying that the physician who conducted the blood-type tests contaminated the samples.
Jason Zelda stated that the test for the blood of Jesus was not done in an Israeli lab. It was done by Ron Wyatt’s best friend and the heir to the Wyatt fortune Richard Reeves.
He went on to say that Richard Reeves is the same Richard Reeves who gave him seventh-day Adventist literature when he went down to the Wyatt museum.
He finished by saying that he believes that it is clear that Mr. Reeves has a vested interest in pushing this story of claiming to find the blood of Jesus 23 chromosomes and all that guys this was not done by an independent lab by professionals this was done by people with their bare hands no protection whatsoever.
No protection to try to stop the contamination of the product and done in the basement of Ron Wyatt how much more bias could this test be.
“The test was not done in an Israeli lab. It was done by Ron Wyatt’s best friend and the heir to the Wyatt fortune Richard Reeves. Richard Reeves is the same Richard Reeves who gave me the seventh-day Adventist literature when I went down to the Wyatt museum. Would you say that he has a vested interest in pushing this story? Of claiming to find the blood of Jesus? 23 chromosomes and all that guys? This was not done by an independent lab by professionals, this was done by people with their bare hands no protection whatsoever no protection to try to stop the contamination of the product, and done in the basement of Ron Wyatt how much more bias could this test be? Rather than having Wyatt doing himself,”said Jason Zelda, bible teacher.
Jason Zelda claims to know that the blood sample in question is not that of Jesus Christ. He argues that it’s simple to catch them in their own lies, and points to a declaration made by Richard Reeves, the designer of the machine used to test the sample. Reeves has stated that he is convinced that the blood was taken from Christ.
In his video on the topic, Jason Zelda said: “I know that this is not the real blood of Jesus. It’s real simple, all you have to do is catch them in their own lies. So we just heard Richard Reeves say that he’s convinced that it’s the blood of Jesus, well of course, he is—he designed his machine to say that, but then he turns around later and says,” referring to a statement made in the video below.
The blood of Jesus Christ was claimed to be discovered in the Ark of the Covenant by Ron Wyatt. The blood he found was never tested by experts.
“In 1989 those excavations were closed and since that time there’s been a great deal of speculation and controversy surrounding his findings controversy which has caused a great deal of anguish with the garden tomb association.
For Ron was not able to validate his claims. He passed away in 1999 leaving no conclusive evidence,” said Richard Reeves, the man who tested the blood sample of Jesus Christ.
