Greek Bishop tunes out for Jesus documentary February 28, 2007Posted by grhomeboy in Movies Life, Movies Life Greek, Religion & Faith.
One of Greece’s most senior clerics dismissed yesterday as “archaeological make-believe” a new documentary by “Titanic” director James Cameron which claims that Jesus had a wife and a son, citing evidence from his alleged burial site.
“What we are dealing with is a well-made piece of archaeological make-believe to promote a film and nothing more,” said Bishop Anthimos of Thessaloniki.
Oscar-winner Cameron suggested that research for the documentary “The Lost Tomb of Christ” shows that Jesus married Mary Magdalene and had a son, Judah, who was buried with him. The film is likely to reignite controversy about the idea of Jesus’s resurrection.
“Christianity comes under attack from time to time, especially during Lent, as happened last year and the year before with the ‘The Da Vinci Code’ and the Gospel of Judas,” said Anthimos.
