I had to reach across the pond to find this item for Bob McCarty Writes. It has to do with a recent James Cameron documentary in which he claimed to have found the bones of Jesus Christ and members of His family. The headline used by the Jerusalem Post(see below) will give you a clue as to why this article by Etgar Lefkovits didn’t get nearly as much press in the USA as the film’s pre-release publicity tour:
According to the Post:
Several prominent scholars who were interviewed in a bitterly contested documentary that suggests that Jesus and his family members were buried in a nondescript ancient Jerusalem burial cave have now revised their conclusions, including the statistician who claimed that the odds were 600:1 in favor of the tomb being the family burial cave of Jesus of Nazareth, a new study on the fallout from the popular documentary shows.
It’s as true today as it was 2000-plus years ago: Jesus was crucified, His body placed in a tomb and, as He said He would, He rose from the dead after three days, leaving no bones behind. Best of all, He will return! Make sure you’re ready!
