According to PRNewswire, Ted Koppel will host a panel discussion immediately following the Discovery Channel’s airing of “The Jesus Tomb.” Look for it at 10pm CT on Sunday evening on the Discovery Channel. Panelists include:
Darrell Bock, Professor of New Testament Studies at Dallas Theological Seminary, past president of ETS
James Tabor, Department of Religious Studies, University of North Carolina
David O’Connell, C.M., President, The Catholic University of America

Koppel, who has no connection to the production of THE LOST TOMB OF JESUS, will bring his independent journalistic perspective to the evidence introduced in the documentary. The hour-long discussion will have minimal commercial interruptions and will present the many voices, opinions and beliefs related to the film’s content. The panel will explore the filmmakers’ profound assertions and challenge their assumptions and suggested conclusions.
