An ancient skeleton has been discovered in Jerusalem in a rich man's tomb. Coloration of the wrist and leg bones indicates the cause of death was crucifiction. Other signs, include a gold coin bearing the marks of Pontius Pilate and faint markings around the skull, lead authorities to suspect that these could be the bones of Jesus. Politicians, clerics, religious extremists, and those using terror as a means to an end, find their beliefs and identities tested while risking their lives to unearth the truth.
This movie had been in development for fifteen years, with Universal Pictures intending to distribute and Liam Neeson set to star. In the end, the project was dropped after Universal became nervous about the religious themes. See more »
When Sharon leaves Matt where he is supposed to stay in Jerusalem, we can see a sign on the wall that reads "Couvent Dominican SAINT-ETIENNE 1884" (i.e. St Stephen's Dominican Convent, 1884). Actually, the brown metallic gate that we can see opens to the Franciscan Convent of Dominus Flevit (cf. the small sign on the right at the end of the shot). There is a Dominican Convent in Jerusalem called Saint-Etienne but close to Damascus Gate and not on the Mount of Olives, as shown in the movie. See more »
Religion is not based on rational system of proofs. It survives because of human need.

I give it a 7.5, good movie, could have been made into a 10 if more $$$ and care were put in it. Interesting scenario for discussing, especially if you believe in God. What "would" happen if someone today claimed they found "THE BODY"? I think weakness lies in that not enough theories were offered to disbunk the idea that it was "indeed" THE BODY. The fact that while watching I thought of a lot of good arguments against the case and the movie didn't address them with some kind of supposed "proof" they find made it a bit weak. Anyway, good movie, go watch it unless you hate movies with any religious topics.
