An Israeli court has ruled that a claimed “lost tomb of Jesus” described in a 2007 documentary by the same name is not a fraud, reviving a debate over Jesus’ life and death.

The documentary, produced by James Cameron and written by Israeli-born filmmaker Simcha Jacobovici, contends there’s evidence that Jesus had been married to Mary Magdalene and that they had children.
