James Cameron’s Jesus Goes Down Like Mel Gibson On The Titanic

From just looking at the slap of limestone found in Jerusalem it’s hard to tell. And we, like the Sun, are unsure how to answer.

But one man knows. James Cameron, film director, the man behind Titanic, The Terminator and Piranha Part Two: The Spawning, says this is Jesus’ coffin.

And, as with so much of Cameron’s work, when you find one hit you get a few sequels. So along with Jesus’ coffin, Cameron introduces the world to the coffins of Marianne (thought to be the real name of Mary Magdalene) and Judah “son of Jesus”.

Cameron calls this “one of the greatest archaeological finds of all time”.

Cameron says this is all compelling evidence that Jesus was married to Mary Magdalene and had a child called Judah.

Says he: “I never doubted that there was a historical Jesus, but the simple fact is there has never been a shred of archaeological evidence until now.”

So here’s Jesus, Mary and Judah. And here’s Amos Kloner, an archaeologist, to tell the Mirror that it’s all “nonsense”. “The names on the caskets are the most common names found among Jews at the time.”

Yes, you heard that right – there was more than one Jesus. And while Cameron ponders an entire series of Jesus flicks and made-for TV movies, he has another film ready to promote. And, as luck has it, this is a film about his amazing discovery. It’s called The Lost Tomb Of Christ and it’s coming to a TV set near you around Easter time.

And Cameron is sure he has found the real deal. The Sun says he is 600-1 sure. Cameron is very rich, and many will like to take him up on those odds.

People like Stephen Pfann, a Biblical scholar, who tells the Star: “How possible is it? On a scale of one to 10 – 10 being completely possible – it’s probably one.”

We say take the bet. If enough of us can club together we can really make some money. The only tricky part will be refusing Cameron’s claim beyond doubt.

The wait for Mel Gibson’s film of a Jewish Jesus impostor promises to be a long one…
