The Jesus Tomb?
February 28, 2007 4:47pm CST
James Cameron's new documentary for the Discovery Channel is stirring up a lot of controversy, which is to be expected when you attempt to disprove the beliefs of a billion Christians. Cameron contends that some ossuaries discovered in Jerusalem back in 1980 might have been the family tomb of Jesus, Mary Magdalene, and their son Judah. http://dsc.discovery.com/convergence/tomb/tomb.html?dcitc=w99-502-ah-1024 What do you think, is this 'The Jesus Tomb'? http://today.reuters.com/news/articlenews.aspx?type=entertainmentNews&storyID=2007-02-26T234554Z_01_N26319137_RTRUKOC_0_US-JESUS-TOMB.xml&pageNumber=0&imageid=&cap=&sz=13&WTModLoc=NewsArt-C1-ArticlePage2

Just names on the boxes will not prove anything, it's impossible to prove anything with DNA tests .. it will be interesting to watch and see what they have as 'proves' but I'm very skeptical and think that someone is going to make a lot of money out of it :)

I think 'Christians' will believe only what they have been taught to believe in their own churches .. folks of other persuasions maybe more open minded (and lets face it their are more than 3,000 religions in this crazy world of ours) .. as a non Christian I am ready to try and understand any and all stories and will keep an open mind about them .. but ultimately I want proof before jumping onto the band wagon .. which is why I am not a Christian .. !

Mmmmm, I read both Hebrew and Aramaic, I've seen pictures of the inscription and...um, I don't even think it says what Jacobovici claims it says. Like him claiming it says "Yeshu bar Yosef (Jesus son of Joseph)" is...kinda wishful thinking, to say the least.
