A Documentary Claims to Have Been Nailed to The Cross of Jesus

Can two of the nails used to crucify Jesus have been discovered in a tomb 2,000 years old in Jerusalem?

¿What could have mysteriously disappeared for 20 years, appearing to end a laboratory accident in Tel Aviv?

That is the premise of the new documentary "The Nails of the Cross" the veteran investigator Simcha Jacobovici, that even before its release has provoked a lively debate in the Holy Land.

The film follows three years of research during which Jacobovici presents his arguments, some based on empirical data, others need a lot of imagination and a leap of faith.

The investigator said the discovery is historic, but most experts contacted by Reuters dismissed it as implausible, and some called it a publicity stunt.

For centuries there have been many ancient relics, and other fasteners that supposedly goes back to the Crucifixion, as related to Jesus. Many were considered false, while others were accepted as sacred.

Jacobovici, which led to a discussion with another film that claimed to reveal the lost tomb of Jesus, says that this finding differs from others by its historical and archaeological context.

"What we are bringing to the world is the best argument ever presented archaeological found that two of the nails of the crucifixion of Jesus," he said in an interview in his trademark woolen hat.

"Do I know 100% that yes, are they?" No ".


The documentary begins with a visit to an ancient tomb discovered in Jerusalem in 1990 which was hailed by many in his day as the burial place of the Jewish High Priest Caiaphas in the New Testament Jesus presides over the trial.

The tomb, along with several ossuaries, or bone boxes, was discovered during construction work on a hillside a few miles south of the Old City. Since then it has been resealed.

Caiaphas is an important figure in the Gospels, by sending Jesus to the Romans and his death, and one of Jacobovici's claims is that the high priest was not so bad.

In the tomb were two iron nails, one on the ground and one in an ossuary, and, as the film mysteriously disappeared shortly afterwards. Jacobovici said that traced back to a laboratory in Tel Aviv of an anthropologist expert on ancient bones.

And if they are indeed the same nails - corroded by rust and arched at the end, almost intentionally - was his death a conspiracy or a logistical error?

Not offered a definitive answer.

In any event, Jacobovici shows why these fasteners can be used in a crucifixion, it was common practice for two thousand years. After offering his theory on why they might be used in the most famous crucifixion story.

"If you watch the whole episode, historical, textual, archaeological, everything seems to indicate that these two nails were involved in a crucifixion," he said. "And since that Caiaphas is only associated with the crucifixion of Jesus, put two and two and seem to suggest that the nails."

The Israel Antiquities Authority, who oversaw the excavation of Jerusalem, said in reaction to the premiere of the film that has never been shown beyond doubt that the tomb was the burial site of Caiaphas. He said it was common to find nails in tombs.
