Biblical Stone Story Causing a Stir on the Internet

There is a story circulating around the Internet right now:

"Biblical stone causes stir reevaluation of Jesus story"

I have not found any more information on this story other than it appears to have originated on The Drudge Report.

However there appears to be an insinuation that there is some historical stone that was found that sheds light on the historical man known today as Jesus the Christ. Regardless on whether this stone or what it facts it supposedly contains on this issue: I do have a living eyewitness to the real Jesus the Christ.

While I cannot describe in detail, at this moment, everything this living eyewitness recalls of this real man we call Jesus Christ; I fully intend to someday.

For now, what I can tell you that there is a man living today who had a 6 year friendship with the real man which is know throughout the world today as Christ. He saw real miracles, he saw real sermons, he saw many followers, and he saw a kind, caring man who was a strong leader among men; and yes there was a real crucification.

For more details, keep checking back on this blog or my first book on this incredible man's eyewitness accounts of 2,800 years of history.

UPDATE:

It appears the Drudge Report was referencing a New York Times story about a 3 foot tall stone tablet that contains 87 lines of Hebrew that speaks about a messiah who will rise from the dead after 3 days. The stone tablet was supposedly found 10 years ago, but because it was a slow news day, the New York Times decided to print this story.

Sounds like another archeological find that confirms the Book of Isiah to me.

A three-foot-tall tablet with 87 lines of Hebrew that scholars believe dates from the decades just before the birth of Jesus is causing a quiet stir in biblical and archaeological circles, especially because it may speak of a messiah who will rise from the dead after three days.
