Discovery Channel finds tomb of Hanun -- or Jesus?
According to a press release from the Discovery Channel, and the associated website that they've put together, director James Cameron and archaeologists for the Discovery Channel have discovered what they say is the "tomb of Jesus," but what independent scholars are saying is probably the "tomb of Hanun."
The implications of this are obvious: if Jesus is still in a tomb, then the central tenet of Christianity is false: "on the third day, he rose again."
Read the AP article on the documentary for good analysis from both sides.
And remember, this isn't the first time that people have tried to deny Christ through attacking his resurrection.
