Two of the nails used to crucify Jesus have been dsicovered in a 2,000-year-old tomb, according to a new film.
The film, ‘The Nails of the Cross’ by Simcha Jacobovici, follows three years of research during which he presents his assertions-some based on empirical data, others requiring much imagination and a leap of faith.
He hails the find as historic, but most experts and scholars dismissed his case as far-fetched, some calling it a publicity stunt.
Many ancient relics, including other nails supposedly traced back to the crucifixion, have been presented over the centuries as having a connection to Jesus. Many were deemed phony, while others were embraced as holy.
