Jesus Family Tomb In the News

Jacobovici and Cameron Defend Claims

Filmmaker Simcha Jacobovici and producer James Cameron supported their assertions that the tomb uncovered in East Talpiot, Jerusalem is indeed that of Jesus and his family.

At today’s press conference, held at the New York Public Library, Jacobovici and Cameron presented evidence to defend their claims.

When asked about the implications of this discovery for Christianity, Jacobovici asserted that his role as a journalist was to present the information in an objective manner, and to let people draw their own conclusions. “What we do as journalists and filmmakers [is] to connect dots and go to experts. Our job, like detectives, is to connect the dots and uncover the big picture,” he stated.

Cameron also asserted that the find is not meant to attack the tenets of Christianity. “We are not trying to undermine Christianity,” he stressed. “What this film is [about is that] it celebrates the real life existence of these people, of this man who had a vision and communicated it in a virile way.”

The ossuaries believed to have contained the bones of Jesus and Mary Magdalene were also unveiled at he press conference, during which the forensic and archaeological methods used by Jacobovici’s team were discussed, such as the use of mitochondrial DNA in order to establish the nature of the relationship between Jesus and Magdalene.

The press conference precedes the airing of “The Lost Tomb of Jesus” documentary which will air on the Discovery Channel on March 4.
