James Cameron Tries to Kill Jesus
laist ^ | 2/24/07 | na

Posted on 02/25/2007 4:41:22 AM PST by Flavius

r at least he's trying to kill the story of Jesus' resurrection.

An upcoming 90-minute documentary directed by Jewish Canadian filmmaker Simcha Jacobovici and produced by Titanic director James Cameron makes the startling assertion that Jesus was never resurrected -- a cornerstone of Christian faith -- and that his burial cave was discovered in the Jerusalem suburb of Talpiyot some 27 years ago. One more thing, Jesus fathered a son with Mary Magdelene.

Cameron and Jacobovici claim they have DNA tests, archeological evidence and Biblical studies on their side. And on Monday, Cameron will hold a press conference in New York to reveal three coffins that supposedly held Jesus of Nazareth, his mother Mary and Mary Magdalene.

The 90-minute film will be shown on Discovery Channel, Britain's Channel 4, Canada's Vision and Israel's Channel 8.

James Cameron has found Jesus Christ, Literally /FILM, MA - 9 hours ago Titanic and Terminator director James Cameron has found Jesus Christ. And his son, we’re not kidding.

The DNA of Jesus.

Sure, I'll buy that, and that bridge in Brooklyn while I'm at it.

This is laughable.

Every year somewhere around either Christmas or Easter, someone tries to debunk Christianity. Quite frankly, its getting a little annoying.

Nope. We're supposed to riot in the streets, make outright threats, force Mr. Cameron into hiding, and maybe kill him if we get the chance.

Oooops. Sorry. Wrong 'religion' for that.

LOL. What, is Cameron jealous?

It really is true that he is his own worst enemy. Let him flail about-- who will be converted by him who isn't already afraid of people having different values?

I doubt that the Apostles would have given devoted their lives and, in the end, given their lives, for a lie. I sense the devil's work in all this...

Why do they keep giving this nut print and air space? Never mind, I know why...

Someone should ask him why he's afraid to ofer up a film about Mohammad, his flying donkey myth, his rape of a six year old baby, his mass murdering binges, then raping their wives after forcing them to watch their beheadings etc etc.

He's a coward thats why. It's easier to tell lies about Jesus who only brought the message of God's Love into this world.

Vegas odds are against Cameron. Jesus has some 2,000 years of Pwnage against him and that whole "Lord of Heaven and Earth" thingy in his corner.

I'm taking this whole thing about as serious as I take James Cameron. What a sad, empty and pathetic existence hollow of any true meaning he must live.

Jesus loves you anyways, James...

Still, the enemies of life continue to gather in strength. True enough to what the bible teaches, that which can be taken as prophecy continues to prove to be more and more accurate. Each enemy who reveals their true nature serves as a warning to the faithful and confirms what they've been taught all along.

In the end, their hatred makes the faithful stronger, which is exactly the opposite of what they intended. How's that for unintended consequences?

I think it's something far more pedestrian myself.

I think it's the work of a man who has spent almost his entire adult life countenancing everything that Jesus preached against sensing his own mortality and trying desperately to convince himself that there is no God.

And that there is most especially no God who is displeased with one James Cameron.

Best of luck with that, Mr. Cameron. You're gonna need it.

This is a documentary that doesn't need an advertising budget. Defame Christianity and you get all the free publicity you want. Hey, what are they going to do about it? Turn the other cheek? It's hip, it's now, it's happening and it can make a film more profitable, regardless of how good it may be.

Christ isn't in that tomb. The Romans and the Pharisees tried to place Christ back in that tomb, and they couldn't. Cameron can join the long list of sad figures who tried to discredit Christ. He too will fail.

James Cameron is a fine director and film maker, but he has some terrible personal demons. I heard him once on a documentary and he did not sound like a man who knew God. I suspect those are behind his motivation to try and put Christ back in the grave.

I also lost a lot of respect for him when he cheated on (an eventually left) his wife Linda Hamilton for this bimbo and that one.

During filming of Titanic, he was screwing Suzy Amos (who played Rose's granddaughter Lizzy Calvert). Lind found out about it when Amos answered Cameron's hotel phone one morning in Mexico.

It is not surprising, since this is in keeping with what the Bible tells us will happen.

God tells us one thing, and James Cameron tells us something else. Who am I to believe? It's not a hard decisin to make.

Since we already know that the then-current regime in Israel claimed that Jesus had never been resurrected and that his disciples had spirited the body away, it's not beyond the realm of possibility in the decades before the destruction of Jerusalem that they constructed their very own tomb to point to as proof of their assertion.

2 Peter 2:1-3 (New King James Version)
New King James Version (NKJV)

1 But there were also false prophets among the people, even as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Lord who bought them, and bring on themselves swift destruction. 2 And many will follow their destructive ways, because of whom the way of truth will be blasphemed. 3 By covetousness they will exploit you with deceptive words; for a long time their judgment has not been idle, and their destruction does[a] not slumber.

It all does seem too very tidy and coincidental to find a whole family of peasants (at least just that generation of the family) with stone coffins listed by name, in one place, buried as wealthy people, and over 2000 years no one ever spoke or hinted of it. And in Jerusalem, many native people still casually acknowledge every place of any historical significance as if the events occurred last year.

"rape of a six year old baby"

Come on! This is just a legitimate cultural difference! He "married" her at 6 and only "thighed" her.. He didn't "consumate" the "marrage" until she reached puberty, which for her, came at 9 years of age.

Now he did "rape the Jewess," a daughter of a defeated Jewish foe...

Not to defend the Muzzies, but they may be just as mad as we are about this tripe.
They believe the Jesus was a prophet. They got mad at Madonna when she did that thing on her concert tour.
But I wish that someone would do a Docum about Mohammed...

Jesus came from an artisan family. Stonemasons (or carpenters) were not peasants. They were the middle class of that day.

Too tidy, yes. If the Jewish ruling class debunkers had done this, it seems weird, given everything else they said, that the site wasn't well known. If the disciples and followers of Jesus had known about this and were basing their gospel upon the resurrection of Jesus, it seems inconceivable, given the presence of a strong Jewish following of the Way in Jerusalem, that they would have so boldly labeled everything that they would have wanted to conceal at the very thing they knew the Jewish ruling class was so eager to publicize. Besides, the origin of Mary M as the wife of Jesus is of more recent origin in the Gnostic gospels. There was nothing in the contemporaneous literature to suggest it. This whole thing seems designed to give support to a more current, and less supernatural, myth that a lot of people are eager to believe. Maybe it was something concocted by Gnostics after the fall of Jerusalem that they could point to to support their contention that Jesus never died on the cross.

Thre is only one place "Mr" Cameron could possibly get any DNA from Jesus,and that particular piece of cloth is under control of the Catholic Church.And I don't remember anyone in the Church giving him permission to even look at the cloth. I'd love to be in line when his turn at the Judgement comes up.

Check out this paragraph from Drudge Report link:
Jodi Magness, associate department chair of religious studies at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, told Discovery News that, based on the New Testament writings, "Jesus likely lived during the first century A.D."

That has got to be one of the funniest (also insert word stupidest) things I've ever read in my life.

How were they sure that they have Jesus' DNA. Could it be somebody elses and people claim its jesus' DNA? Plus they say that they compared Jesus's DNA to Mary's DNA and said that since they don't match, they had to be wife and husband, but don't you think that they don't match because Jesus was the son of God? Also, why couldn't they just respect the tomb and leave it alone? I think the archaeologists were Jewish and why couldn't they respect the tomb that Christians believe in. All I personally think is that religions should just respect what others believe in and give doubts to people.

How sad for James Cameron. It is doubtful that he has the power to change the heart of a "true Christian", but to be involved in a plot against Jesus Christ for all those who are searching??....well, I can only imagine the cost of that sin....

There is not enough money in THIS world to make up for living without Christ in the next....

I was speaking about the Apostles, not Trotsky. He didn't give his life for anything, it was taken from him by an assassin. There are plenty of examples of people dying for a lie, you're just trying to be too clever. The 12 disciples lived with Jesus, ate with him and traveled with him. If they weren't absolutely convinced as to who he was and what he did they would have never spent the rest of their lives in hardship, deprivation and, finally, martyrdom for Him. But, you believe what you want. We will eventually all find out who was right.
