James Charlesworth of the Princeton Theological Seminary, who also consulted on the film, told Newsweek that the documentary makes a strong case for the biblical lineage, which is supported in part by archaeologists, historians, statisticians and DNA and forensics experts.I would be interested to know if that is still Professor Charlesworth's view now at the end of this week. Another prominent New Testament scholar associated with the documentary is Francois Bovon of Harvard Divinity School (listed on the Discovery webite), but I have not seen any public comments by Bovon on the claims made by the documentary.
"A very good claim could be made that this was Jesus' clan," he said.
Update (16.13): Professor Charlesworth is involved in an Expert Q & A on the Discovery website. From what one can see of his answers so far, there is nothing to suggest that he has changed his mind about the identification of the Talpiot tomb with Jesus of Nazareth's family.
