The public relations push by the Discovery Channel for James Cameron's TV documentary The Last Tomb of Christ is firing on all cylinders. ABC sent Wilf Dinnick (subscription required) to the Talpiyot district of Jerusalem where the documentary speculates the proclaimed Messiah's unresurrected bones were buried. With additional claims that Jesus lived with Mary Magdalene after he was crucified, NBC's Ron Allen reminded us that "The Da Vinci Code told a similar story as fiction. This project claims with new DNA and forensic evidence to uncover fact." That novel was mentioned by CBS' Mark Phillips too. He called the documentary's methods from "The Da Vinci Code via Indiana Jones School of Archeology." Phillips concluded: "Once before the Discovery Channel tried to sell audiences a story about another ancient box of bones with a Jesus connection. The man at the center of that claim is now facing trial for fraud."
