No love for "The Lost Tomb"

Monday, March 05, 2007

It's tough to find any Christian leader or clergy to validate James Cameron's faith-busting documentary, "The Lost Tomb of Jesus". From Newsday:
"The Lost Tomb of Jesus," produced by "Titanic" director James Cameron and directed by Toronto filmmaker Simcha Jacobovici, claims that 10 2,000-year-old caskets found in a Jerusalem suburb in 1980 may have held the remains of Jesus and his family. Two caskets bear the names "Mariamene" and "Judah, son of Jesus," suggesting, the filmmakers say, that Jesus married Mary Magdalene and had a child with her.

The film is scheduled to air Sunday at 9 p.m. on the Discovery Channel.

If the movie's hypothesis is true, the evidence would challenge a central tenet of Christianity: that Jesus defied death and rose to heaven three days after he was crucified.

The Rev. Ann Van Cleef, pastor of Orient Congregational United Church of Christ, said she would "absolutely not" preach about the movie. "I preach out of the Bible, which has truth in it," she said. "I might save this one for a sermon on sin."
