Sorry, just not buying into this one. Crosses in the first century Roman Empire were often re-used; so, the possibility that you could even identify an entire cross as the one on which Jesus was crucified, much less identify some little piece of wood as being part of that cross, is practically non-existent. And what does some rock with crosses carved on it have to do with supposedly finding a piece of the cross used in Jesus’ crucifixion?
