The Filmmaker, James Cameron, known best for his overblown, and over sunk, romance movie the Titanic is now trying his hand at archaeology, well kind of. See, Cameron has done something no one actually in the field of archaeology has been able to do, he’s found the coffin of Jesus reports “This is London”.
In fact Cameron says he’s found more than just the son of God, he found “three coffins he claims were those of Jesus, his mother Mary and his ‘wife’ Mary Magdalene (along with their son Judah.)”
His more than 2 million dollar documentary, “The Lost Tomb of Jesus,” no doubt aimed at those who also get their theology from the Da Vinci Code, exhibits the truth of his claims, it will air later this week. The important point for Cameron is that “he is not denying the resurrection – as there were no bones in the caskets.”
Of course some doubt his findings, which revolve around a tomb that was discovered in the 1980’s and at the time provoked little attention. It wasn’t until, “A connection to the holy family was not made until 15 years later, when a film crew stumbled across the collection in a storeroom.”
Interestingly, after some DNA test, Cameron has concluded that Jesus and the woman buried beside him wasn’t a sister, but his wife! And of course their famous child Judah who has recently found hollywood stardom thanks to Dan Brown‘s own brilliant scholarship on the matter.
When confronted with the seemingly unimportant fact that James Cameron is a little out of his league he retorted, “I’m not a theologist. I’m not an archaeologist. I’m a documentary film maker…”
Is anyone a theologist?
And Rocketboom has pointed out that with all these new findings, and the valuable DNA we may be looking at a Jesus clone.
Now if only the Roman empire would have thought of this 2000 years ago, they would have been able to, well you know, squelch a “small” revolution they had on their hands. Thanks James for putting an end to all the questions everyone had but no one else could.
