Not according to Canadian film-maker Simcha Jacobovici and James Tabor, chair of religious studies at the University of North Carolina. According to their upcoming documentary The Lost Tomb of Jesus, Jesus plotzed it like a regular joe and was buried in a box on the family property:
Jacobovici says there is nothing in the documentary that should offend devout Christians, since he does not argue that Jesus did not ascend to heaven, at least spiritually, as told in the Bible.
"People who believe in a physical ascension — that he took his body to heaven — those people obviously will say, wait a minute," he said, adding he hopes the film sparks more scientific study of the tomb and the ossuaries found inside.
Jacobovici and Tabor also claim that Jesus had a kid named Jude with Mary Magdalene. Naughty naughty savior boy!
For some reason, James Cameron is involved in this whole deal. I'm not sure whether that's a good sign or not.
I didn't think "to plotz" could be used transitively.
I'd like to hear Stockwell Day's opinion on the matter.
Hmm, the Beatles really were bigger than Jesus...
