Simcha Jacobovici Responds to Critics of His “Nails of the Cross Film”
by James Tabor
I am posting this response by Simcha Jacobovici to critics of his “Nails of the Cross” documentary that aired on the History Channel in the USA and most recently in Israel. His thesis: that two crucifixion nails, most likely those used to crucify Jesus of Nazareth, were found in a Jerusalem tomb belonging to the Caiaphas family in November 1990, then lost by the Israel Antiquities Authority, but now recovered. Caiaphas was the High Priest in the time of Jesus who delivered him over to Pontius Pilate, the Roman governor of Judea, for blasphemy and sedition. The film has stirred a storm of criticism with an untoward amount of ad hominum attacks.
