The Lost Tomb of Jesus

Overview

Director/producer/screenwriter Simcha Jacobovichi teams with executive producer James Cameron to explore the possibility that a first-century tomb unearthed in Jerusalem in 1980 may have once held the remains of Jesus Christ. In the Talpiot neighborhood of Jerusalem, a bulldozer inadvertently unearthed a tomb containing ten ossuaries - six of which bore inscriptions of extraordinary magnitude to biblical scholars. Six names were inscribed on the stone coffins: Jesus, son of Joseph; Mariamene (the common name of Mary Magdalene; Maria; Matthew; Joseph; and Judah, Son of Jesus. Though the stone coffins were initially dismissed as coincidence by archeologists, they were cataloged by the Israel Antiquities Association before being sent to a warehouse and forgotten for over two decades. Compelled by the remarkable collection of New Testament names inscribed on the tombs, filmmaker Jacobovichi, with the aid of Cameron, determined to solve the mystery behind what could be one of the most significant archeological discoveries in the history of man.

    Read the book. YES, there are many tombs that had ossuaries in them with the name "Jesus" inscribed on them. The point many of you are missing is that there have been NO TOMBS FOUND with a COLLECTION of ossuaries with the inscriptions "Jesus, son of Joseph", "Maria" "aka Mary", "Marriam" "aka Mary Magdalen, as other research shows", Judah, son of Jesus, James, brother of Jesus, and Matia "aka Matthew". It's the collection of all of these names of Jesus' family together in one tomb that makes it unique. What makes the Gnostic gospels unappealing to Christians is that they may contradict some of what they've been taught to believe. What is SOOOO wrong with the idea that Jesus was married and had a family? At one time, many people thought the Earth was flat and the planets revolved around ours. Science (and experience) proved otherwise. I'm sure it was difficult for "believers" to grasp the concept of a "round" earth or that our planet revolves around the sun - not the other way around. I encourage others to read this book, watch the movie and revaluate what you THINK YOU KNOW about history and religion. I wish you peace.

    What a waste of time

    After reading the book and watching the movie I can say that this is a waste of time. The "evidence" used was not from the Bible but some Gnostic writings. And those were not even used correctly. The statistics they use to "prove" that the Talpiot Tomb was the Jesus Family Tomb is laughable "you can prove anything with statistics if you know how to work the numbers!". I recommend anyone considering getting this to get the book "From Toronto to Emmaus" by James White first and then make your decision.

    This is a remarkably well done and convincing piece of archeolog

    This is a remarkably well done and convincing piece of archeological research, leaving only slight doubt that the bones and burial site of Jesus and his family were finally found. What a shame that the Israel authorities ordered the tomb sealed before a complete and thorough investigation could be completed. This outstanding documentary should not shake your conviction that Jesus rose from the dead in the least. He rose spiritually. He had no further need of this corrupt earthly body that he only temporarily used.

    Lost Tomb of Jesus

    One hopes that reputable archeologists are researching the tomb properly. It would be unspeakably tragic to ignore this amazing find for political or religious reasons.

    BUNK!

    This "theory" and movie are nothing but a load of hooey. They have been thoroughly discredited in almost all academic circles and in the media as well. I normally enjoy James Cameron's work, but in this regard, I'm afraid he's laid an egg. The fact that they have released this "documentary" on DVD shows, to me anyway, that they have no shame and are only "in it for the money".

    Over 70 "tombs" have been found in Jerusalem that date to the first century and have the name "Jesus" inscribed upon them. This is an embarrassing and shameless money grab by a good film maker. What a shame.
