A report recently published in the press announced that a cup dating back to the time of the Prophet Jesus (pbuh), that is 2000 years ago, was found during the researches in Jerusalem and the surrounding area. There is a strong likelihood that the cup, on which the words "Lord, I have returned," were written, is a personal item that was used by the Prophet Jesus (pbuh) 2000 years ago. The words, written in a script in use at that time, shows that the cup is a personal belonging from the Prophet Jesus’ (pbuh) previous life:
“And on Jerusalem's Mount Zion, archaeologists recently discovered and deciphered a two-thousand-year-old cup with the phrase "Lord, I have returned"
inscribed on its sides in a cryptic code similar to one used in some of the Dead Sea Scrolls
.” (Ker Than, “Dead Sea Scrolls Mystery Solved?”,National Geographic Daily News, July 27, 2010; http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2010/07/100727-who-wrote-dead-sea-scrolls-bible-science-tv/)
As revealed by our Prophet (May Allah bless him and grant him peace), the Hijri 1400s are the time when, by the leave of Allah, the Prophet Jesus (pbuh) will return to earth. As it has been understood from the hadiths of our Prophet (May Allah bless him and grant him peace) and from the statements of Islamic scholars, he is already on earth and at work now. Within the next 10-20 years, by the leave of Allah, all mankind will overtly see his radiant face again.
At such a time, the finding of a personal item used by the Prophet Jesus (pbuh) 2000 years ago, is highly significant. Basing on the hadiths and on the works of major Islamic scholars, Mr. Adnan Oktar, had stated in his previous statement that on his return the Prophet Jesus (pbuh) will be wearing the clothes he wore 2000 years ago and will have various personal belongings with him:

From Mr.Adnan Oktar's Live Interview on Kral Karadeniz dated 23 August 2009
The beautiful of the beauties, the Prophet Jesus (pbuh) has such an amazingly beautiful eye color. His hair will be a golden yellow reminiscent of chestnut. It will hang down to his shoulders, and his hair will seem wet even though it has not been washed. It will look as if it has been washed. He will be indescribably radiant. He will take the breath away of those who see him. The dajjal will be breathless when he sees him. Just his gaze will be enough. There will be no need for anything else, insha’Allah. I mean those who understand will understand, in fact many things are needed of course, and he has a responsibility to tell people about Allah. So let me not say it like that, it might be misunderstood, may Allah forgive me. But he will be hugely impressive. He is not tall, but of medium height. The Prophet Jesus (pbuh) will have broad shoulders and an athletic build. He will come at the age he was when he ascended into the sky, with the same clothes, though he will change his clothes later. But we will see his original clothes, the clothes in which he was taken to the sky. We will see the shoes with which he was taken to the sky, HE WI LL HAVE SMALL, PERSONAL BELONGINGS WITH HIM, and very little money, and we will see all this, insha’Allah.
He was taken out of time, he stepped out of time in a moment, and will now re-enter time.
From Mr. Adnan Oktar's Live Interview on Kaçkar TV dated February 26th, 2009
When the Prophet Jesus (pbuh) first comes, he will enter a Christian community, but a Christian community reminiscent of Islam. Allah will leave him in a state of sleep in a room, in a house in which they are present. When those people meet the Prophet Jesus (pbuh), they will first have only doubts, I mean they cannot be sure. They will not know who he is. They will just find him as someone who cannot recall his own past. They will be unable to attach any special significance to his clothing then. They will only find him odd, they will be perplexed. There is no question of the Prophet Jesus (pbuh) wearing those clothes all the time. Bu he will be wearing them when he first appears. But those clothes will be hidden away, his followers will hide them. FOR EXAMPLE, HE WILL BE LEFT WITH THE COINS HE USED AT THAT TIME, WITH HIS OWN PERFUME AND SCENT BOX, HIS MIRROR AND SOME SPECIFIC PERSONAL BELONGINGS LIKE THOSE, and the things he had in his pocket back then, he was taken away wearing those clothes, and will be brought back still wearing them, insha’Allah.
From Mr. Adnan Oktar's Live Interview on Başkent TV, Dated February 13th, 2009
And what rejoicing. For one thing, people will be resurrected from the dead. They will regain the love they lost. Blind people will begin to see and deaf people will begin to hear. People have lost the greatest blessing, but that blessing will be restored to them. The will regain love. They will acquire fear and love of Allah. The will see the reality of the religion and the miracles of the Qur’an. What does the return of the Prophet Jesus (pbuh) mean? It is a huge phenomenon. A prophet raised to the skies 2000 years ago will return, in his original clothing, and people will see him. He will have the same sandals on his feet, and the same skull cap. The perfume he wears and everything will be original. He will return in the same form. That is a breathtaking miracle. Something utterly astonishing. Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) has been described right down to the finest detail. They will see the exact same Mahdi, the identical to the one described. They will see all the things Mahdi will be doing one by one.
From Mr. Adnan Oktar's Live Interview on Kanal 35, March 14th, 2009
"Why did You forsake me?" he asks. Because you did wrong and Allah punished you. The Prophet Jesus (pbuh) was taken to the sky at that moment, with the same clothes and a few coins on him. He also had his mirror, a scent box, the scent he used, and his own personal belongings, a pair of sandals with thongs between the toes. He had a long robe, and was taken to the sky with that. And he will return in exactly the same way.
He is the loveliest of all men. People will be amazed, but deniers will not recognize him when they see him. Said Nursi says, “his close followers and disciples and chosen ones will know him through the luminosity of faith.”
Those who do not recognize him and understand will imagine he has amnesia. Said Nursi says he will be left among a Christian community that is reminiscent of Islam. It may be one of their churches or a large house they live in. But wherever it is, Allah will leave him in a state of sleep. He will wake up from that sleep and know nothing, and they will think he is someone who has lost his memory. They will not understand at first, but because he is very clever and highly intelligent he will soon learn all the languages. He will learn the Torah and the Qur’an and the Gospel. He will learn them off by heart as soon as he reads them. That is how it was with Said Nursi and our Prophet (May Allah bless him and grant him peace) as well. And with the Prophets Abraham, Isaac, Jacob (peace be upon them all) and all of them. That is to say the prophets have an extra-ordinary ability to memorize and have superb memories. They are specially created like that. There have also been guides, like Said Nursi, with superb memories. They will first hide the Prophet Jesus (pbuh), but when the time comes he will perform a miracle. I mean a clear miracle. And because of the force and power of that miracle, Almighty Allah says “there will be nobody left who does not believe in him,”
among the People of the Book. Because of the intensity of his appearance, the intensity of his radiance, that is because he is a prophet. He is a sublime prophet. Yet despite that beauty and delightfulness he will still appoint Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) as his imam and say "you are my leader". He will receive this through revelation, of course. Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will make strong objections, but he will propel him to the fore to lead the prayer. The Mahdi will try to step back, but he will insist he leads the prayer. The Prophet Jesus (pbuh) will push him from behind. Then the Mahdi will become the imam. After that, the Mahdi will be the leader of the whole world, of the whole Christian and Islamic worlds. This is all very imminent. I think the public will understand the Mahdi perfectly clearly as of around 2014. But because by 2021 he will be in full view, I think, there won't be much need for me to describe him. Insha’Allah.
From Mr.Adnan Oktar's Live Interview on Dem TV dated January 23rd, 2009
The Messiah (pbuh) has a very sharp look. You will see him just as I have said when he arrives. He had two yellow garments when he ascended to the sky, one on top, the other underneath. Like a robe, one was very long, like a robe. The shoes on his feet were like sandals with a thong between the big toe and the one beside it. Sandals made of stout leather. He will return to Earth at the age of 33 WITH THE SAME ORIGINAL PERSONAL BELONGINGS
. He stepped outside time and space. But he will then be restored to time and space. That may seem just like one second to him, those 2000 years. When he returns, everyone will know him from his behavior and language and character. Said Nursi says, “When the Messiah comes, not even he, himself, will know who he is.”
From Mr. Adnan Oktar's Interview on Kon TV dated February 1st, 2009
This is very clear. It is the same with the coming of the Prophet Jesus (pbuh). It will not happen with someone standing up and claiming to be the Prophet Jesus. The Prophet Jesus is in the sky and in the Presence of Allah. He will be sent down in a state of sleep, and will make no claims of his own. He will assume that task because he truly is the Prophet Jesus. He will come with the clothing he wore 2000 years ago. With the shoes of 2000 years ago, wearing the perfume he wore 2000 years ago. He will come with his own lovely scent. In that exact form.
And the Mahdi is the person with all the physical characteristics described by our Prophet (May Allah bless him and grant him peace), and he too will appear with his form in destiny.
