I watched it to see if it was going to be as bad as was predicted.
I think it would be more jarring to the Sola Scriptura crowd. Well schooled Catholics would easily pick up the fabrications they have made to history. Some of the statements, (note without any references to authors of the fictional history) they made about historians who now believe that Mary Magadaline was the mother of a child with Jesus, and apocryphal gospels etc, or even gnostic texts without explaining to the crowd who either ignores history as a “Catholic invention” or is blinded by the Bottiners and Hislop and Foxes book of Martyrs rewrites of history are unaware that they “History” they where quoting was A: minority opinon that was written as late as the 18th Century by those who wanted to attack the documented Catholic teachings, and B: is primarily a bunch of Anti-Papal conspiracy theories based on legends and ideas condemned by Catholic Councils and Popes because it denied that our Lord rose from the dead both body and soul.
A Catholic who is even moderatly trained or has at least been exposed to the Fathers of the Church, and Church History would easily see the contraditions to what has always been taught, and the mis-quoting of the Bible. While it may help to know Hebrew, Greek and Latin most of the assertions made by the filmaker who was not schooled in the latter two, and only in modern Hebrew in the case of the former one could easily see through the word jumble they tried to play.
I could go on, but then again, I have already risked being labled as brainwashed by the Pope for believing in the Ressurection of our Lord because A:The Church has always taught it B: The bible, a product of the Catholic Church in cooperation with the Holy Ghost corrolates what the Church taught before it was written, and C: My total brainwashing by the Jesuits, (or whichever group a Sola Scriptura self made Pope wants to blame, brands me with.March 6, 2007 at 9:16 am #7838March 6, 2007 at 3:59 pm #7840
A find apologist, and the links at the end of his article just go to show how far from believable the “Documentary” is. It is so easy to pull the wool over the eyes of those who are poorly catechized in authentic History, and the Two thousand year old faith taught by the Catholic Church.
The quoting of stray and errant “historians” who people like Dan Brown and the authors of this mess use (without reference to who these “Scholars” are) or that they are new interpretations of history by people with little or no backround as historians, archeologist, who cannot read or have never been exposed to the ancient texts to the exclusion of known texts, (Catholic, Pagan and Jewish) from the time period, is the same type of tactics used by those who have a thousand and one different interpretations of the Bible as my only source, and me as the only one that the Holy Ghost can use to interpret it. Rather than causing unity among the believers in Christ, it leads the ignorant into chaos. Not quite what our Lord prayed for when He prayed, Ut unum Sint.

I have this recorded on my DVR and have yet to watch it. I did watch the Noah’s Ark program before it. So what you all are saying is this “Tomb of Jesus” program is protestent spun? Is that right?March 7, 2007 at 3:14 am #7848
No not conservative Protestant. Some of the Liberal Protestant sects, like the Unitarians may not find it offensive, but I’m saying that those who have no understanding of authentic history, like the Ultra Sola crowd who shun anything that is not in the bible, (except of microwaves, cars, jets and computers) will find it more disturbing because they have no frame of reference when the non-chrisitan film maker brings up “facts” like the Ossuary of James, which was debunked by scientists a few years back, and “Ancient Writings” like the gnostic gospels and histories written by heretical sects in the fourth through eighth centuries.
Well read Catholics should be able to spot the historians and histories cited as being long dead heretical views that have been revived by Dan Brown of the Da Vinci code, and his ilk.March 14, 2007 at 2:07 am #7868March 14, 2007 at 2:15 am #7869

After reading up on this trash, I erased it from my DVR and didn’t bother to watch it.
