Daily Doc: Did These Stone Boxes Contain Jesus' Remains?

+ More

As we mentioned earlier, a forthcoming documentary called "The Lost Tomb of Jesus" is raising a lot of eyebrows. In this video, you can see the producer, James Cameron (director of "Titanic, among other movies) present the two stones boxes that, evidence suggests, may have contained the remains of Jesus and Mary Magdalene, another Biblical figure.

Critics have been quick to chime in. The existence of Jesus' physical remains would challenge a literal interpretation of the Bible, which states that he rose from the dead and ascended to heaven. Others scholars support a more spiritual interpretation of the resurrection.

In the Bible, Mary Magdalene, who Jesus rid of evil spirits, is present at the crucifixion and witnessed his ascension. She is often associated with a prostitute who anointed Jesus' feet.
