James Cameron reveals remains of Jesus and family?
James Cameron might just have set himself up for a big controversy as he announces that he's found the remains of Jesus, Mary and Mary Magdalene. He's announced a press conference in New York where he will allegedly be revealing their coffins which still hold their remains.
Wow! You have to wonder if this is some kind of publicity stunt, or if he really has found the remains as part of his documentary that delves into the claims that Jesus wasn't resurrected and actually died, like a real human, and that he aired a son with Mary Magdelene. Oh some people are going to be mad.
Let's go back 27 years, when Israeli construction workers were gouging out the foundations for a new building in the industrial park in the Talpiyot, a Jerusalem suburb. of Jerusalem. The earth gave way, revealing a 2,000 year old cave with 10 stone caskets. Archologists were summoned, and the stone caskets carted away for examination. It took 20 years for experts to decipher the names on the ten tombs. They were: Jesua, son of Joseph, Mary, Mary, Mathew, Jofa and Judah, son of Jesua.
That's how it all started, but even then the coffins weren't connected with the bible as there were so many inconsistencies with the biblical stories. However the makers of the documentary, Narrator Cameron and director Simcha Jacobovici, claim that the coffins found belong to Jesus and his family.
I'm not sure if this film is The Exodus Decoded since the IMDB write up of the film doesn't mention the amazing findings above:
...in which new evidence in favor of the historicity of the Biblical Exodus is explored. It is partially narrated by film director James Cameron. Jacobovici suggests that the Exodus took place around 1500 BCE during the reign of pharaoh Ahmose I, and coincided with the eruption of Santorini that most scholars believe ended the Minoan civilization. In the documentary, the plagues that ravished Egypt in the Bible are explained as having resulted from that volcanic eruption, and a related collapse in the Nile river delta.
The documentary will soon be shown on Discovery Channel, Channel 4, Canada's Vision, and Israel's Channel 8, so we don't have long to wait, and both the showing and the press conference on Monday will no doubt raise controversy galore.
