NEW YORK, Feb. 27 (UPI) -- Tight security surrounded a New York screening of "The Lost Tomb of Jesus," the controversial documentary that claims to have found Jesus' burial site.
The documentary by James Cameron and Simcha Jacobovici presents physical evidence found in a 2,000-year-old tomb in a Jerusalem neighborhood that once may have held the remains of Jesus of Nazareth, Mary Magdalene and possibly a son named Judah, Variety said Tuesday.
The documentary, scheduled to air Sunday on the Discovery Channel, has sparked controversy.
"It doesn't get bigger than this," Cameron said during a news conference at the New York Library, where the film was previewed. "We've done our homework, we've made the case and now it's time for the debate to begin."
Cameron also displayed two limestone bone boxes he said he believed could have been the final resting place for Jesus and Mary.
