    Dear friends, Brothers and sisters in Christ.

    What evidence is there to suggest that this is the famous Apostle Paul, Saul of Tarsus, now known as Turkey, and Saint Paul of c. AD 5 – c. AD 67 who wrote half of the New Testament.

There is evidence that people traveled here since the first centuries of Christianity.

3600 coins where found in the tomb believed to have been left behind by visitors from around the world. The coins are from different time periods before and after Christ. They left the coins to show the long journey they had taken to get to the apostles tomb.

Why would people travel many miles if they did not believe this tomb to be something of significance?

 Strangely enough we still do a similar thing to day by travelling to places and throwing coins in a well.

Also a probe was inserted through a small hole in the tomb to reveal traces of purple linens decorated with gold sequins, red incense grains as well as small fragments of bone.

It is said that experts performed a carbon dating which revealed they were from someone who lived between the first and second century. This is the right time frame for Paul the apostle.

It was also believed for a long time that there was a slab over St. Paul’s remains inscribed with the Latin words: ”Paulo Apostolo Mart — Paul, apostle and martyr” and interestingly enough a white marble sarcophagus was found by archaeologists beneath the floor of the basilica.

Saxony, Rengert Elburg, a Dutch expert in archaeology who studied the bones said it was not possible to prove it is St. Paul himself.

My conclusion 

I agree, but that still does not disprove it. It is believed that St. Paul was beheaded and if the tomb was opened and the remains of the body were exhumed and the cut was found between the third and fourth vertebrae this could prove that these are the mortal remains of Paul the apostle. 

Quite frankly it doesn't matter how much evidence we have on St Paul's Tomb as I have experienced in my deep research on the garden tomb being the tomb of Jesus even with the overwhelming evidence both there and here at St. Paul's tomb.

Who will believe it?
Above all, you must understand that in the last days scoffers will come, scoffing and following their own evil desires. 3.2 Peter 3:3

Sadly we will always have skeptics and scoffers in all cases. If we are unbelievers than let’s look at these discoveries with a open mind.

Let’s open our hearts. If we are believers than let’s remember we know St. Paul existed so why can’t we find his tomb? For someone who was so important to believers today.

Let St Paul's tomb remind us, whether this tomb is true or false, St. Paul's legacy lives on.

  7. was one of the most influential early Christian missionaries, with his writings forming a considerable portion of the New Testament. His influence on Christian thinking has been of utmost significance[3] due to his role as a prominent apostle of Christianity during the spreading of the Gospel through early Christian communities across the Roman Empire.

    2. Acts 13
    3. 1Now there were in the church that was at Antioch certain prophets and teachers; as Barnabas, and Simeon that was called Niger, and Lucius of Cyrene, and Manaen, which had been brought up with Herod the tetrarch, and Saul.
    4.  2As they ministered to the Lord, and fasted, the Holy Ghost said, Separate me Barnabas and Saul for the work whereunto I have called them.
    5.  3And when they had fasted and prayed, and laid their hands on them, they sent them away.
    6.  4So they, being sent forth by the Holy Ghost, departed unto Seleucia; and from thence they sailed to Cyprus.
    7.  5And when they were at Salamis, they preached the word of God in the synagogues of the Jews: and they had also John to their minister.
    8.  6And when they had gone through the isle unto Paphos, they found a certain sorcerer, a false prophet, a Jew, whose name was Barjesus:
    9.  7Which was with the deputy of the country, Sergius Paulus, a prudent man; who called for Barnabas and Saul, and desired to hear the word of God.
