Critical reading of the New Testament Four Gospels discovered several citations and descriptions differing from the common views presented by Christian theologians. Yeshua’s healing abilities convinced him that he might have divine qualities as if of the long-awaited Messiah, described in Isaiah 53. It required the humiliated and suffering person should be officially false accused, sentenced to death and buried with the rich. Yeshua asked his alleged rival the High Priest Caiaphas to arrange the trial and the death sentence leading to his crucifixion. To assure Yeshua’s awaited resurrection Caiaphas secretly transferred the body from the temporary grave to his illustrious family tomb as demanded by Isaiah’s prophecy, convincing Yeshua’s followers of his resurrection and becoming the Messiah, as well as Jesus Christ. Yeshua’s soul rose to heaven, but after a year his bones were placed in an ossuary decorated with a carving characterizing his personality. The identity of the ossuary was identified from a picture in an archaeological report nearly 28 years ago.

Keywords: Yeshua followed Isaiah 53; Judas coordinated the arrest; Caiaphas carried out the prophecy; Yeshua’s body transferred to Caiaphas family tomb; Body disappearance substantiated becoming Messiah (Jesus Christ).
