Statistics and The Jesus Family Tomb
How the producers of the “lost tomb of Jesus” documentary misused statistics in their attempt to prove that the Talpiot tomb was the family tomb of Jesus.

This past week, Simcha Jacobovici and Charles Pellegrino launched a new book titled "The Jesus Family Tomb: The Discovery, the Investigation, and the Evidence That Could Change History." They'll follow it up with a documentary to be shown on the Discovery Channel. It's a fascinating book. I grabbed it as soon as I could and read it carefully to see what the case is. I'll say right away that I came to like Simcha Jacobovici very much while reading the book. His intellectual curiosity launched this investigation, and he clearly loves a great puzzle.

Bayes' Theorem and The Jesus Family Tomb
Scientist explains factually and mathematically why the “Jesus family tomb” theory is hopelessly flawed.

Publication of the book The Jesus Family Tomb in late February, 2007, sparked a media firestorm. Could it be that the actual tomb of Jesus of Nazareth had been found in a suburb of Jerusalem? The book's authors, Simcha Jacobovici and Charles Pellegrino, believe it has. The book was followed up by the showing of a related documentary on the Discovery Channel on March 4, 2007.
