Lost Tomb of Jesus Found

Tuesday, March 6th, 2007 at 13:49 by Eliza E. Lanyard

James Cameron, the film director who managed to stretch out the story of a sinking ship far longer than anyone believed possible, has been involving himself in archaeological studies in Jerusalem.

He has made a documentary detailing some of the latest finds in the 2,000 year old Tomb of the Ten Ossuaries. An Ossury means a limestone bone box. Amongst these stone tombs is one that has been determined likely to be the tomb of Jesus. The odds are something like 600 -1 that it is the tomb of Jesus and his family.

I’m not very good at maths so I have no idea how likely that is in reality but its been said it contains the remains of Jesus of Nazareth, his wife Mary Magdalene and Judah the son of Jesus.

If this can be proved this will be quite startling news for the major christian religions and may lead to some hurried re-thinking and re-writing of the life of Jesus.

It can only be a coincidence that these claims are being made as the documentary is due to air in America as the actual tombs were discovered some 27 years ago.

    Wear and tear shows that it was used for quite a long time.

    How on earth could it ever be proven?

    I don’t think the church will be losing much sleep over this.

    I just hope Cameron casts Leo and Kate again. They were lovely together.

    ‘Just promise me, Mary, never let go.’

    I haven’t seen the Cameron directed Titanic as I couldn’t be bothered - I knew it sank and I’m physically allergic to Leonardo Di Caprio so I thought of other ways to waste/spend my time.

    600-1? I’ll have a fiver each way on that
