Jesus Christ revelation: Major breakthrough as biblical shipwreck unearths St Paul clues.

The Biblical book Acts claims St Paul’s boat was shipwrecked in the region. It is said St Paul was travelling on board a boat with Jesus Christ’s apostle, Luke, as they were en route for Rome. St Paul was heading to the centre of the Roman Empire to make an appeal to Caeser.

The ship ran aground in a devastating storm and was smashed to pieces by the waves.

Holy lore recounts the sailors, desperate to survive the choppy waves, cut away four of the ships anchors and left them at sea.

Biblical explorers BASE Institute claim they identified one of the anchors, and the real location of St Paul’s shipwreck.

BASE founder and Bible scholar Bob Cornuke travelled to Malta where he claims he discovered the only surviving anchor.

He said the anchor verifiably dates to the first century.

The location of the findings also match the descriptions found in Acts.

Mr Cornuke believed St Thomas’s Bay, on the southeastern shore of Malta, is the most likely location of St. Paul’s shipwreck.

The anchors BASE claims on their website is the icing on the cake for the their discovery.

It alleges the four anchors were discovered by four divers in the 60s.

Mr Cornuke wrote for BASE, describing how only one of the anchors survived as the divers weren’t aware of what they had discovered.

Two were melted down to become diving belts, the third was lost and the fourth is owned by one of the diver’s widow.

He claims studies of the anchor were carried out by the University of Malta, who verified it as Roman origin.

Mr Cornuke added: “That one anchor may well be the only artefact mentioned in the New Testament that has been recovered and preserved in our era–nearly two thousand years later.”

The scholar claims other factors about St Thomas’s Bay match up with the story of St Paul.

Geography of the area matches up with descriptions of the landscape, including a sandy beach.

It is home to a large pointy reef, matching the Biblical working of where “two seas meet”.

The depth of the water matches with the findings recorded in Acts, along a coastline which would have bee used by ancient ships.

Acts 27:28 says the water was 90ft deep which Mr Cornuke claims is an exact match for where the anchors were found.

Mr Cornuke said: “All of these factors, taken together, argue convincingly not only that today’s St. Thomas’ Bay is the correct site of Paul’s shipwreck.

“It also allows that the four anchors recently retrieved from those waters were the very anchors mentioned in Acts.

He added: “As with any historical claim, the best we can do is examine the evidence in terms of probability.

“But the evidence for the anchors of Paul’s shipwreck is virtually overwhelming.”
