Photo: Jesus' Tomb Found in Israel, Filmmakers Claim



Journalist Simcha Jacobovici, left, points to a stone box that he and others say may have once held the remains of Mary Magdalene, beside another that may have held the remains of Jesus of Nazareth, right, during a news conference on February 26, 2007.

Jacobovici directed a film, produced by James Cameron, second from left, that suggests several such boxes found in Israel in 1980 may have contained the bones of Jesus and his family.
