Movie Night: The Lost Tomb of Jesus

The Lost Tomb of Jesus









The Lost Tomb of Jesus is a documentary co-produced and first broadcast on the Discovery Channel and Vision TV in Canada on March 4, 2007, covering the discovery of the Talpiot Tomb. It was directed by Canadian documentary and film maker Simcha Jacobovici and produced by Felix Golubev and Ric Esther Bienstock, while James Cameron served as executive producer. (Jacobovici and Cameron had previously created The Exodus Decoded.) The film was released in conjunction with a book about the same subject, The Jesus Family Tomb, issued in late February 2007 and co-authored by Jacobovici and Charles R. Pellegrino. The documentary and book's claims are the subject of controversy within the archaeological and theological fields, as well as among linguistic and biblical scholars.








I don't watch taboo documentaries for the truth or untruth or make assumptions either way. I like when a film has a gathering of many minds expressing both sides of a matter and debating the pros and cons, justifying both sides of the yea nay political structure of the religious issue that's the center topic of the movie. Its fascinating to see people that are so enthused about it struggle to connect the dots in history and then in their truth try to make sense of what people refer to as the conspiracy theories and those that on the opposite ends try to debunk them. I respect that kind of enthusiasm to believe either way so strongly about something that they are willing to not just have their say but allow others theirs as well. Its an interesting film none the less whether you believe or not.
