Apparition of Jesus caught on camera

EDITOR’S NOTE:  We would like to thank Nancy Talbott, president of the BLT Research Team, Inc., for telling us about this story and for her significant contribution in the writing of this article.  At the end, there is a message from Jesus that came through when the above photo was taken.

Robbert van den Broeke, who many think is the top psychic-medium in Europe, took the above photo of an apparition of Jesus on January 11, 2015. Among many other talents, he has the uncanny ability to produce very clear images of people known to be deceased with ANY camera handed to him.

Of course doubts roar in the minds of skeptics when they hear this, but he’s been able to repeatedly produce such photos under highly controlled and monitored situations.

We learned about Robbert from Nancy Talbott who is president of the BLT Research Team, Inc. in Cambridge, MA, the world’s only crop circle research organization with multiple consulting professional scientists who carry out crop circle plant and soil analyses and also participate as advisors and liaisons with other scientists.  The team includes properly trained field personnel in the U.S., Canada and many countries in Europe who have been collecting crop circle plant and soil samples since the early 1990s.

In 1997, a BLT fieldworker from The Netherlands contacted Ms. Talbott to ask if the team’s scientists could analyze a white powder which had been left behind after Robbert, then 17, and his sister encountered a massive glowing light ball at their home. 

Following the analysis, Ms. Talbott, who was on a lecture tour through Europe, met Robbert and then witnessed for herself some of the phenomenal events which constantly occur around him.  When she learned Robbert somehow also “knows” exactly when and where new circles in his area will form, she recognized a unique opportunity to learn more about the circle phenomenon.

As a trained researcher, she spent years witnessing and carefully documenting multiple anomalous events as they occurred around Robbert, including seeing two crop circles form in fields right in front of them both in 2001 and 2006. 

She also observed Robbert’s ability to produce images on his camera of people known to have died, so she sought proof again.  For several years, she had Robbert use only her camera on their research trips and then only in her presence.

In 2006, while looking over Robbert’s shoulder at the camera’s LED screen, she personally observed the sudden and very clear appearance of a man’s face which was not visible in the air in front of the lens. 

On a later trip, she watched Robbert use her camera to take 60-plus daylight photos of her recently deceased brother – a man Robbert had never met and whose name he didn’t even know.

The huge range of totally anomalous photos Robbert takes are, although inexplicable, not what is really important.  He has for many years also experienced “knowings” and heard “messages” from the presences whose images appear in the photos.

On the night of January 11, 2015, he felt surrounded by the presence of Jesus Christ.  In his mind’s eye, he saw Jesus before him.  This made him very emotional.  He also felt the presence of the Angel Gabriel.  He then was encouraged to take photos. Jesus appeared in those photos and also gave Robbert a message – one the medium wishes to share with the world.   Since the Dutchman cannot write in English, here is the message as he told it to Ms. Talbott:

Jesus asks that people not join in discrimination toward Muslims. Cartoonists should not misuse the pencil and would do better to stop making offensive/hurtful cartoons and pictures about Islam or any other religion. This is willfully hurting people and causing pain. There is really no sense in making these cartoons, there is no need for it and it is unnecessary -- it is a way to cause trouble and to create worldwide unrest.

Jesus “told” Robbert that people would do well to listen more closely to one another, and with respect -- that it is better to restrain from prejudice against Muslims. Most Muslims have a great innate politeness and eternal fidelity to God; they live every second with God and pray several times a day. Non-Muslims should have a better understanding of this and recognize that most Muslims are not fundamentalists and do not want these attacks either -- that it is only a small group of Muslims that have these “fundamentalist” principles.

It is terrible that attacks are committed in the world (as in Paris).  This is not what the majority of Muslims want, nor is it what Christians want. It is good that people come together to protest against such attacks, but beware: freedom of speech must be practiced with respect and everyone must be accepted as he or she is.

How people experience God is something very personal -- it is vigorous, but also vulnerable. Therefore it is advised not to engage in deliberate ridicule of prophets and saints because this is insulting to those people who hold these figures as icons; the response to such ridicule is very emotional and will unleash only fire and aggression, causing only more attacks to be committed, with more sad and lonely people as a result.

Don't be fooled, dear people, by political leaders who try to convince you that these attacks are the “calling card” of Islam. These terrible actions are carried out by only certain individuals or groups which are not true representatives of this religion. Have respect for one another and for all religions and all races.

Jesus’ crucifixion nails – lost and found


Simcha Jacobovici is a three-time Emmy winner for Outstanding Investigative Journalism.  He has directed and/or produced nearly 30 documentary films and co-authored three books – “The Jesus Family Tomb,” “The Jesus Discovery” and “The Lost Gospel.”  His latest documentary film, “The Nails of the Cross,” has stirred up international attention. The following information and photos come from multiple sources including a December 17, 2014 posting on his website and a recent biography.


“What we are bringing to the world is the best archeological arguments ever made that two of the nails from the crucifixion of Jesus have been found,” says Simcha Jacobovici who has been following this story for five years.

“Do I know 100-per-cent they are them? I don't. [But] if you look at the whole story, historical, textual, archaeological, they all seem to point at these nails being involved in the crucifixion.”

two nails

Jacobovici says two Roman nails were found in the tomb of Caiaphas, the Jewish high priest who orchestrated the plot to kill Jesus, when his tomb was discovered in 1990.

“The Israeli archaeologists who excavated the tomb did not photograph the nails, draw them or catalog them,” he says.  “In fact, the Israel Antiquity Authorities (IAA) lost them or, more correctly, misplaced them.  And that was that.  No headlines and no fanfare.”

Then in 2010, Jacobovici located two nails in the forensic anthropology lab of Tel Aviv University.  The director of the lab, Professor Hershkovitz, said he had received the nails from the IAA a decade earlier – the time of the Caiaphas tomb discovery.

“Based on their size, shape and the fact that their ends were bent, Professor Hershkovitz surmised that they were crucifixion nails,” says Jacobovici, “most probably used to secure the hands of a crucified man.

“Based on the above,” Jacobovici says, “I concluded that the crucifixion nails in Professor Hershkovitz’s lab are the missing nails from the Caiaphas tomb, and that they must have been the very nails driven through Jesus’ hands.”

One of my staunchest critics was Geo-Archaeologist Dr. Aryeh Shimron (R).  He said that the whole theory was farfetched but that, in theory, it could be scientifically tested. I asked him if he would do the science.

“His answer was: ‘You probably won’t like what I find.’ In response, I said that I was just interested in the truth.”

The scientific testing took several years but Jacobovici says the findings were “nothing less than astounding.”


“Dr. Shimron discovered that the Caiaphas tomb has a unique chemical signature, derived from flooding, perhaps from a nearby aqueduct. He also found that the nails in Professor Hershkovitz’s lab perfectly match the Caiaphas tomb’s chemical signature. In fact, he was able to trace the nails to the bone box of the High Priest himself.

“But more than this,” Jacobovici continues, “he even found traces of phosphorous on the nails, indicating contact with bones. Most dramatically, while examining the nails under an electron microscope with Dr. Vitaly Gutkin, he found pieces of ironized wood still adhering to the nail!

“Switzerland’s Dr. Werner Schoch, the world’s foremost expert on ancient wood, was able to identify the species of wood as cedar.

“So it’s now a fact – not conjecture – that Caiaphas, the man who is identified with Jesus’ crucifixion, took two crucifixion nails with him to the grave.

“Are these the very nails that were driven through Jesus’ hands? And if so, why did Caiaphas want to be buried with them?”
