Thanks Yuya, I see your post back on March 1. My awareness level of the "Jesus Family Tomb" was fairly low at that point. I really did not recognize the significance until seeing the Discovery Channel special.
Even if the tomb was royal (Herodian) and intended as a tomb or cenotaph for Jesus and his relatives, I agree that it is extremely doubtful that his remains were ever placed there. It is more reasonable that the tomb was eventually reappropriated for other burials.
