ACCC Responds to "Bones of Christ" Claim


Bethlehem PA — An upcoming Discovery Channel program contends that two ancient ossuaries (bone boxes first discovered in 1980) once possibly contained the earthly remains of Jesus Christ. The assertions, which were sure to raise objections from Evangelical Christians who believe the Scriptural account of Christ’s resurrection and His bodily ascension into heaven, have been given extensive coverage in mainstream media.

The documentary, entitled The Lost Tomb of Jesus (a.k.a. The Jesus Family Tomb), was produced by Hollywood film maker James Cameron (The Terminator, Titanic), who took his material chiefly from the book The Jesus Family Tomb.
