It seems that a Canadian host caught Simcha Jacobovici in a labyrinth of changing directions and blind alleys. Robert Cargill notes
In the video, Simcha admits he is “not a theologian, not a Christian,” and of course, elsewhere has admitted he is “not an archaeologist, nor an academic.” (Simcha Jacobovici, “The Nails of the Cross: A Response to the Criticisms of the Film,” jamestabor.com, June 22, 2011, p. 45.) And yet, if any theologian, Christian, academic, archaeologist, or any one else trained in these fields suggests anything other than “it’s a fish,” Simcha will have nothing to do with it.
That’s how desperate and precarious their theory has become…and the documentary hasn’t even aired yet.
Drew Marshall’s interview with Simcha Jacobovici will be remembered as THE moment that the
delusionalobstinate stubbornness of Simcha Jacobovici became self-manifest. He said it himself. He doesn’t want to hear anyone tell him it’s not a fish. It just is. Oh, and because it’s a fish, it’s a “Christian tomb,” “owned by Joseph of Arimathea,” those buried inside “knew Jesus” and “heard him preach,” and therefore the tomb next to it “contains the bones of Jesus.”
There’s considerably more. It’s quite clear that Simcha is trying to muzzle opposition and demonize anyone who doesn’t follow him into the labyrinth of lunacy. His is pseudo-archaeology at its very worst. He’s on tv because cable stations are just that desperate for something to slop the public.
