National Geographic is examining the claims that the tomb of Christianity’s Jesus has been discovered in Jerusalem in an upcoming episode of the series "Mysteries of the Bible." The archaeological postulation is a life of Jesus that includes a family.
The claims for a tomb in Jerusalem were popularized in the Simcha Jacobovici documentary ‘Jesus Tomb’ which questions the basis of Christianity.
That documentary was also controversial. It is roundly dismissed by many dogmatic Christians and was even banned in India.
Controversies such as this can offer both insights and challenges to religious beliefs. The impact is magnified during religious observations such as Easter.
