Two crucifixion nails discovered by a Canadian-Jewish filmmaker named Simcha Jacobovici in a 2,000-year-old tomb was said to be the nails used to crucify Jesus, international news reported.

Jacobovici recorded the details in a documentary film entitled “The Nails of the Cross” which will premier in the United States on April 20 and on May 15, 2011 in Israel.

According to reports, the nails were found in a burial cave hailed by many as the burial place of the Jewish high priest Caiaphas, who in the New Testament turned Jesus over to the Romans.

Reports said that most experts and scholars dismissed Jacobovici‘s case as far-fetched and other call it just for publicity stunt.

“What we are bringing to the world is the best archaeological argument ever made that two of the nails from the crucifixion of Jesus have been found,” Jacobovici said.

When asked if he is 100 percent sure that it was really the nails used to crucify Jesus, he answered no. Nevertheless, Mr. Jacobovici wants to offer his theory why those nails could have been used in a crucifixion.

“If you look at the whole story, historical, textual, archaeological, they all seem to point at these two nails being involved in a crucifixion. And since Caiaphas is only associated with Jesus’s crucifixion, you put two and two together and they seem to imply that these are the nails,” Mr. Jacobovici was quaoted saying.

Meanwhile, the Israel Antiquities Authority said that the interpretation presented by Mr. Jacobovici in his documentary film is quite interesting, however, it has no basis in archaeological findings or research. They also added that it had never been proven beyond doubt that the tomb was the burial of Caiaphas.
