A revelation about
the composition of the
Blood Of Jesus
When Jesus died, there was an earthquake.
The bedrock at the foot of the cross split open,
and His blood dripped through a fissure in the rock.
Unbeknown to people then and since, the Ark of the
Covenant lay below in a cave, hidden by Jeremiah from
just before Jerusalem's fall in 586 BC.
Jesus' blood dripped onto the mercy seat of the Ark. A perfect
physical fulfilment of the Ark's spiritual symbolism was
enacted – Jesus paid for us to have contact with God!
In 1982, God led Ron Wyatt, an American archaeologist,
to find this ancient treasure. He also discovered the
blood on the mercy seat. Analysis reveals its uniqueness!

Chromosomes, Somatids, and
The Blood of Christ

As far as possible, Anchor Stone strives to make public all information available about the discoveries of Ron Wyatt. The only material we hold back is information that would in some way jeopardize our ability to pursue our ongoing exploration and investigation, which might place some of our associates in danger, or in cooperation with legal authorities. At the same time we work very hard to confirm all information to make sure that what we do share is accurate to the best of our knowledge. This is why I am writing this article today.
There has always been a group of critics that have circulated inaccurate information and false reports about Ron and his work. Over the years we have come to expect this. However, since his death some of the people that were originally involved in his work have begun to mislead people in regards to certain subjects. They have done this in a number of ways. One is to simply leave out certain information which by its omission can lead to a false conclusion. Another method is to release new information and then claim that this is something that Ron Wyatt always believed.
Shortly after Ron's death I received a call from a friend who told me that one of Ron's past associates was telling people that we should immediately stop talking about chromosomes in relation to blood tests associated with the Ark of the Covenant discovery. The only explanation given was that there was new information that would be forthcoming later. However the explanation did not come in a timely manner and months went by. In the meantime it was being strongly implied that this new information would somehow overshadow or possibly invalidate the information Ron had shared publicly about the chromosome count of the blood found on the Ark of the Covenant.
After making a few phone calls I found out that the new information was the somatid theory that has now been on the wyattmuseum web site for almost 2 years. The gist of this theory is that all living things have within them a "spark of life" and that this spark is evidenced by what are called somatids. Without going into an extensive history on somatids I will simply say that a man by the name of Gaston Naessens, who developed the dark-field microscope, discovered these amazing little objects. This special type of microscope is required to see somatids in a sample. Somatids are not visible with a standard laboratory microscope. There are currently a number of theories as to exactly what they are and the mechanism by which they function but what seems clear is that these objects are found within the bodily fluids of living organisms.
During his many public talks on the subject of the blood sample that he took, Ron often mentioned that when the blood was tested it was found to be "alive". Other times he said it a bit differently; he stated that when viewed under a microscope the blood of Christ was "alive". Over the years many have wanted to understand what Ron meant by this.
The way somatids have been applied to the Ark of the Covenant discovery is that WAR has claimed that they took a sample of the blood of Christ, rehydrated it and found within the rehydrated sample a number of somatids. They then submit that this is proof that the blood of Christ is alive and that this is what Ron meant when he stated that the blood was found to be alive when examined under a microscope.
This new information was released after Ron's death, although the somatid test was performed before Ron's death. I will point out here that Ron was talking about the blood being alive long before this somatid test was performed. In fact I have been unable to find (and I would welcome a copy if someone can provide one) a single instance when Ron mentioned somatids when talking about the blood tests. Perhaps he did but I have not heard it.
However I have several examples of where Ron ties the concept of the blood being alive to the presence of living white blood cells within the sample and ultimately to the results of the chromosome test that was performed. This is also consistent with our personal conversations on the subject.
Listen to what Ron Wyatt has to say!
[At this point, for those who access his account on the web, there is an audio link for the recipient to listen to a recording of what Ron Wyatt said about this.]
So here we have a theory about somatids being promoted as what Ron Wyatt really meant when he talked about live blood, while at the same time we have been told to "stop talking about chromosomes". Why is this happening? And further, what difference does it make? Cannot both be true?
I personally have no doubt that both are true. The blood of Christ, which is alive, would have somatids in it. However the presence of somatids does not prove anything. Every person has somatids in their blood. So the blood sample shown on the wyattmuseum web site could be anyone's blood. But that is not all. A number of researchers tell us that somatids are also found in freshly squeezed fruit and vegetable juice! So does that prove that the fruit juice in question is alive? On one level it does.... but is this the concept that Ron was trying to share? I don't think so.
When I began to speak publicly on the discoveries of Ron Wyatt, one subject always caused me to feel intimidated. It was the subject of the blood of Christ and the chromosome test that Ron spoke about. Even if I did not mention it myself, people in the audience would invariably ask about it and expected an answer. Because I was lacking in information about chromosomes and this type of blood test I discussed the subject with Dr. Eugene Dunkley who is an expert in genetics. Here is part of what I learned.
In order to perform a chromosome count (karotype) test on human blood you must be able to isolate and culture living white blood cells. This is because white blood cells are the only cells in the blood that carry genetic material. These cells must also be alive because they have to be cultured so they mature and divide. At a certain stage of cell division the chromosomes within the cell become visible under a microscope. When this stage is reached a dye or chemical is added that stops the growth cycle. Then the chromosomes are counted by sight through a microscope.
As I stated earlier, the blood must contain living white blood cells. Best case scenario, blood cells can live outside of the body approximately two weeks. A sample older than this would not contain living cells so there would be no way to perform a karotype test. This is the reason Ron so specifically pointed out that the blood of Christ was alive. Even though the dried blood sample was 2000 years old, when rehydrated and examined under a microscope, it contained living cells.... including white blood cells. The microscope used in the lab that tested the blood was not a dark-field microscope and so any somatids present would not even be visible!
The very fact that the blood of Christ was alive after 2 millennia is nothing short of a miracle. However it is in line with Scripture which speaks of Christ in Psalms 16:10 this way, "For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption." Since the Bible tells us in Leviticus 17:11 that, "....the life of the flesh is in the blood.", we see that the true blood of Christ would be expected to be as alive today as it was 2000 years ago.
But the question still must be addressed, "What difference does it make, chromosomes or somatids? Both testify to the blood of Christ being alive in harmony with Scripture."
That is true, but to promote the somatids, as WAR has encouraged, to the exclusion of the chromosomes leaves out a very important testimony; one that Ron Wyatt believed and I believe is one of the most important testimonies of the blood. The results of the chromosome test conclusively affirms the identity of this man as the Christ because it testifies that he was the product of a virgin birth!
Under normal circumstances all human beings have 46 chromosomes.... 23 from their mother and 23 from their father. There are 22 pairs of autosomes which determine things such as our height, hair and eye color, etc. The 23rd pair is the sex determinant pair. They consist of either "X" or "Y" chromosomes. The mother only has "X" chromosomes. The father has both "X" and "Y" chromosomes.
If the sex-determinant pair is matched "X-X", the child is a female. If "X-Y", the child is a male. Thus we see that the single chromosome provided by the father in this chromosome pair determines the gender of the child. When the blood sample Ron Wyatt took from the crack in the rock ceiling above the Mercy Seat was tested, it contained 24 chromosomes.... 23 from the mother and one "Y" chromosome from the father, 24 chromosomes.
As Dr. Eugene Dunkley states in his article on the genetics of the blood of Christ, 24 chromosomes is exactly what would be expected if a man was born of a virgin. There are 23 chromosomes from the mother and a "Y" chromosome from a father. But that father cannot be a human father because the other 22 chromosomes on the father's side are missing. Therefore the existence of a "Y" chromosome is at the very least a mystery, if not a miracle.
But there is more. In the 12 years since I first heard of the work of Ron Wyatt, I have listened to his critics say some pretty incredible things in an attempt to dissuade people from believing in his discoveries. But there is one incredible claim that specifically applies to this discussion.
Ron Wyatt found the Ark of the Covenant in 1982. Over the next 17 years, until his death in 1999, Ron spent much time in the caves in that area of the Calvary escarpment. Critics have actually claimed that if Ron ever brought out an "Ark of the Covenant" or a set of stone tablets claiming they were the Ten Commandment stones, the likelihood was that he manufactured them in that cave during those 17 years.
Incredible, huh? But you know something, a lot of people will choose to believe that. And even if they don't want to believe that, it will raise an element of doubt in their mind that could sour the testimony that God wants to give when He brings these things forth. The truth is, since no one knows exactly what the real Ark of the Covenant looks like, it is possible that someone could make a fake ark and pass it off as the real thing.
I don't know where they would obtain that much gold but it is within the realm of possibility..... especially if the devil is helping you. And it is also possible to make a fake set of Ten Commandments for the same reasons. So when these things are revealed, how can the discovery be authenticated?
We have seen recently, with some claimed Bible archaeology discoveries (James Ossuary), that ancient artifacts can be faked and that people are very skeptical if the evidence of authenticity is not iron-clad. So how can the discovery of the Ark and tables of stones be authenticated? BY THE BLOOD!
Clever men can make a fake ark and deceive people. They can make a fake set of commandment stones and pass them off as the real thing. But even with today's technology men cannot make fake human blood. The blood found on the Mercy Seat of the Ark of the Covenant, tested in a forensic manner, will provide the authenticity needed to convince even the most skeptical BUT honest-hearted critic.
I submit that when God gave the Ark discovery to Ron Wyatt, at the same time He provided the key to authenticating it beyond any reasonable doubt. This was necessary because this will be part of God's last plea to a dying world.... that by His blood He has atoned for our sins and that this atonement was placed upon the Mercy Seat as an eternal living testimony of what He did at Calvary.
Please don't tell us to stop talking about the chromosomes. If we don't talk about them, I believe the very stones will cry out.
Ark of the Covenant Update
January 6, 2000
by Bill Fry
For a number of years the discovery of Jesus' blood on the Mercy Seat of the Ark of the Covenant has been discussed. While that point, in and of itself is controversial, the issue of Christ's blood and its makeup has been another issue of controversy.
We recognize that this controversy cannot be put completely to rest until the test results on Christ's blood are released publicly. However, we have recently been contacted by a Dr. Eugene Dunkley (PhD. Genetics). Ron Wyatt discussed the test results with Dr. Dunkley at length the last time Ron was in England.
Although he has not personally analyzed the blood sample, Dr. Dunkley addresses in the following article the feasibility of the test results that Ron reported and what a genetic scientist would expect to find in an analysis of the blood of Jesus Christ. I believe you will find this information both interesting and thought provoking.
NORMAL CHROMOSOMES & DEVELOPMENT
by Dr. Eugene Dunkley
What would the chromosomes of the virgin-born Son of God look like?
Normally, human cells have forty six chromosomes present in the nucleus. Chromosomes are actually structures which contain the vast majority of the human genes, from which we get our various traits. Chromosomes can be classified as either autosomal or sex-determining. The autosomal chromosomes are actually paired chromosomes, with twenty-two maternal chromosomes and twenty-two paternal chromosomes. These chromosomes are paired because they are homologous, that is they contain genes which code for the same functions. The two sex-determining chromosomes are the X and Y chromosomes. Females are XX; males are XY.
Because the chromosomes are in pairs, the cells containing 46 chromosomes are said to be diploid. In contrast, haploid cells are cells with unpaired chromosomes. These only have 23 chromosomes, and are normally only found in the gametes. Gametes from the male can have either an X or a Y chromosome as a sex-determinant, whereas gametes from a female will only have the X chromosome as a sex-determinant.
ABERRATIONS IN THE CHROMOSOME NUMBER
Changes in the chromosome number are often associated with disease. Aneuploidy is the addition or deletion of individual chromosomes from the normal diploid set of 46. This condition arises during development of the embryo and is considered to be lethal; only a low percentage of children conceived with this condition survive till birth. Diseases associated with aneuploidy of the autosomal chromosomes which have resulted in live birth are trisomy 13 (Patau syndrome), trisomy 18 (Edwards Syndrome) and trisomy 21 (Down's syndrome). Downs syndrome is the only trisomy of an autosomal chromosome which allows survival to adulthood. Of the sex chromosomes, however, aneuploidy is far more common (1 in 400 males and 1 in 650 females). Some well-characterised aneuploidies of the sex chromosomes are 45, X (Turner Syndrome), 47, XXY (Klinefelter Syndrome) and XYY Syndrome.
CHROMOSOMAL ABERRATIONS AND CANCER
There is a growing amount of data involved with the relationship between chromosomal breakages and cancer. Many tumors are associated with deletions of DNA. In fact, it is believed by many that chromosomal breakage may be the cause of many types of cancer. This is believed to be due to the loss of function of some genes involved in the control of cell division; when the gene or genes is/are missing or inactive the cells divide without restraint and invade neighboring tissue. Even when one copy of these controller genes is present, it may not be enough because of a dependence on the gene dosage.
A VIRGIN BIRTH
So, it is generally accepted that humans require 46 chromosomes because of the need for the correct gene dosage. Too many copies of a gene will likely result in abnormalities and disease, whereas too little of a gene is considered fatal. However, this is based on the need for the correct gene dosage.
If we take the Virgin birth of Jesus Christ as an historical fact, what chromosomal number and type would we expect? Clearly, 46 chromosomes, though normal in humans, would indicate normal fertilization. However, since no human male was involved in the conception of the Christ, then one would not expect to find 46 chromosomes. However, the maternal chromosomes would be provided by the mother as the host, so we would expect at least 23.
If this is the case, what would be the nature of any genetic material provided by divine means? It would presumably carry male-determining factors because these would not be provided by Mary. However, there would have to be provision from this "divine" DNA to be also able to compensate for the reduced gene dosage which would result from the missing 23 paternal chromosomes.
Such a mechanism could exist if we have a deep enough understanding of gene activation and expression. Genes are normally turned on and off due to various factors present; if these factors maintained a single-gene copy at a maximal rate then the presence of a second gene could be completely redundant. Also, this divine DNA could also code for activators that are able not only to maintain the optimal gene dosage but also allow access to genes normally locked from activation (and presumably "lost").
DNA AND BLOOD
It is generally known that mature red blood cells (RBCs), which are found in the circulatory system, are enucleated, that is they have no nuclei and therefore no chromosomes. Thus, they are incapable of dividing and being cultured. However, white blood cells (WBCs), which are the mainstay of the immune system, contain DNA and are thus capable of division. In fact, cell lines of monocytes, leukocytes, and macrophages are routinely used to study the immune response and a number of biological processes. Blood samples are routinely taken to isolate DNA for a number of studies.
If it were possible to obtain a blood sample of Jesus Christ, what could a person expect to find? To be immortal, the cells would be capable of life at any stage, because apoptosis (programmed cell death) could not take place. One could culture the WBCs and study the DNA content in vivo (that is, under living conditions). Karyotypes of cultured cells could be obtained by a number of cytogenetic techniques to observe both the chromosome number and the banding pattern of the chromosomes. These would give enormous insight into the activity of the genes and the nature of the man known by many to be the "Son of God".
