As described on the Discovery Channel website, "The film makes a case that the 2,000-year-old 'Tomb of the Ten Ossuaries' belonged to the family of Jesus of Nazareth and examines DNA extraction from human residue found in two of the ossuaries, revealing new evidence that throws light on Jesus' relationship with Mary Magdalene. The documentary includes dramatic recreations, based on the latest historical evidence, illustrating accurate images of Jesus of Nazareth, his family, his followers, his ministry, his crucifixion and his entombment." The film has also sparked interest for Cameron, who jumps 400% in search activity.
