Movie Info

Director/producer/screenwriter Simcha Jacobovichi teams with executive producer James Cameron to explore the possibility that a first-century tomb unearthed in Jerusalem in 1980 may have once held the remains of Jesus Christ. In the Talpiot neighborhood of Jerusalem, a bulldozer inadvertently unearthed a tomb containing ten ossuaries - six of which bore inscriptions of extraordinary magnitude to biblical scholars. Six names were inscribed on the stone coffins: Jesus, son of Joseph; Mariamene (the common name of Mary Magdalene; Maria; Matthew; Joseph; and Judah, Son of Jesus. Though the stone coffins were initially dismissed as coincidence by archeologists, they were cataloged by the Israel Antiquities Association before being sent to a warehouse and forgotten for over two decades. Compelled by the remarkable collection of New Testament names inscribed on the tombs, filmmaker Jacobovichi, with the aid of Cameron, determined to solve the mystery behind what could be one of the most significant archeological discoveries in the history of man.
