Who is behind the Jesus Boat Legacy?
The Jesus Boat Legacy is a partnership between the brothers Lufen who discovered the Jesus Boat (and who hold the rights to the Wax from the boat) and the team which operates this website and is responsible for creating the unique items and gifts that we offer for sale.
The team consists of a range of people, all experts in their chosen field who are passionate about Christianity, the history of the Holy Land, Archaeology and product design.
Where are you based?
The Jesus Boat Legacy is based near the Sea of Galilee in Israel. This is also where our range of jewellery and custom items are designed, manufactured and shipped from. The museum where the Jesus Boat is displayed is very close by and also sells our range of jewellery.
What is the goal of this website?
Our goal is to share with you our passion and provide you with an unique opportunity to own a tangible part of Biblical history as well as inform you about the history of the Jesus Boat by means of exclusive content provided to us by the brothers, archaeologists and others who have been an integral part of the Jesus Boat project since the boat was first discovered in 1986. We also aim to provide various other items from the Holy Land including Messianic Gifts and Judaica all which will help you establish a Biblical connection.
What is the Connective Element?
The Connective Element is derived from the original substance in which the Jesus Boat was submerged for over 12 years when being restored. During this time pieces of the 12 different types of wood that make up the boat as well as other 2000+ year old material from the Sea of Galilee and the Jordan River diffused into the conservation material which was then used the create the wax
This wax was then named the Connective Element as it provides a tangible connection to the Jesus Boat, the Sea of Galilee and the Jordan River from the time of Jesus.
Do you have authentication documents for the Connective Element?
Of course we would not expect anyone to buy one of our items unless we could provide definitive proof that they contain the actual wax from the Jesus Boat.
We have created an Authenticity page where you will find several documents that prove that you are buying an authentic piece of Biblical history.
Where are your items made?
All our pendants are handmade by artisans living around the Sea of Galilee establishing a 2000+ year continued connection to Biblical times.
