Overview:

The Bible says that Jesus rose bodily to Heaven after his resurrection. The Qur'an, the holy book of Islam, denies that Jesus was ever crucified or resurrected. But it states that Jesus did ascend to Heaven later in his life -- perhaps at the time of his death. Both religions teach that he is currently in Heaven.

Simcha Jacoboviciis is a Canadian director of documentary movies. He is known as "The Naked Archeologist" because he stars in a his series of half-hour programs called by that name. He has co-authored a book and co-created a documentary movie claiming that the family tomb of Joseph and Mary has been found with the remains of Yeshua of Nazareth and his wife Mary Magdelene and several of Jesus' brothers.

The suggestion that Jesus' is not alive in Heaven, but that his remains spent the last two millennia in a Jerusalem tomb has raised a firestorm of angry responses from theologians.
