The Lost Tomb of Jesus

I don't know how Filipinos would react to James Cameron's TV film entitled The Lost Tomb of Jesus. I hope they would dismiss it as just another money-making scheme by some greedy business people. I want to quote here what Professor Amos Kloner an Israeli Archaeologist said about the TV film.
It makes a great story for a TV film. But it's completely impossible. It's nonsense. There is no likelihood that Jesus and his relatives had a family tomb. They were a Galilee family with no ties in Jerusalem. The Talpiot tomb belonged to a middle class family from the 1st century CE.

In another interview Professor Kloner appropriately said:

"They just want to get money for it."
And that's exactly what they will do.
