Take it or leave it.

BBC News - 'Jesus tomb found' in Jerusalem
Jesus had a son named Judah and was buried alongside Mary Magdalene, according to a new documentary by Hollywood film director James Cameron.

It examines a tomb that, it is claimed, belonged to Jesus and his family, and was found near Jerusalem in 1980.

The Oscar-winning director of Titanic says statistical analysis and DNA show the tomb is that of Jesus.
I'd like to find out a little more information about this. I don't understand how DNA can even be an issue here. Where are they getting DNA that they "know" belonged to Jesus to test it against? Without something to test it against, DNA is useless. It's not going to affect my religious beliefs one way or the other, but it still would be interesting to know what they are basing it on.
