Jesus, Mary, and Joseph!

A team of filmmakers that includes Titanic director James Cameron will present evidence on Monday that Jesus' burial site has been found.

The story starts in 1980 in Jerusalem’s Talpiyot neighborhood, with the discovery of a 2,000 year old cave containing ten coffins. Six of the ten coffins were carved with inscriptions reading the names: Jesua son of Joseph, Mary, Mary, Matthew, Jofa (Joseph, identified as Jesus’ brother), Judah son of Jesua (Jesus’ son - the filmmakers claim).
Although the cave was discovered nearly 30 years ago and the casket inscriptions decoded ten years ago, the filmmakers are the first to establish that the cave was in fact the burial site of Jesus and his family. [Link]
A film about the discovery will be broadcast on the international Discovery Channel, Britain's Channel 4, Canada’s Vision and Israel's Channel 8. I hope the film is better than the website.



I read the articles and I don't see anything about the remains, just about the coffins.

If remains WERE found in the coffin with Jesus' name on it, that certainly would turn some folks upside down, wouldn't it?



This story states that bones were found, and that "DNA specialists" were involved with the film. At least one Christian group has already come out against the film.

If they did find DNA, they can just test it against these guys.
