Religion professor James Tabor and documentary filmmaker Simcha Jacobovici have already generated major controversies about the early history of Christianity. The Jesus Family Tomb, which Jacobovici co-wrote, contended that a first-century tomb discovered in 1980 might lend no evidence to the Gospel story and Tabor's 2006 The Jesus Dynasty proposed a new understanding of the early Christian movement. The revelations of The Jesus Discovery promise to eclipse even the hubbub generated by these two earlier books. According to the co-authors, a recent archaeological discovery provides proof that belief in the resurrection of Jesus actually predates the Gospels. The new find will be the subject of a primetime Discovery Channel television documentary. A book that will command media attention.
