Documentary Movie "The Jesus Boat Revealed" Now Available on DVD


Los Angeles, CA -- (March 18, 2010) – On Friday, January 24, 1986, two Sea of Galilee fishermen made a fascinating discovery. On March 15th, 2010, the story of the 2000-year-old Jesus Boat – its discovery, excavation, and the many miracles surrounding the vessel – became available in a one-hour DVD format, The Jesus Boat Revealed.

“The Jesus Boat discovery is just like one of those stories from the Bible,” says Yuval Lufan, who discovered the vessel with his brother Moishale. “It seems unrealistic, yet it happened. Our discovery is one of those incredible Bible stories, only it happened here and now, in this day and age.”

A one-hour documentary movie, The Jesus Boat Revealed chronicles the numerous stories surrounding the boat’s discovery and excavation through interviews with the people who were there. The movie illustrates how the vessel is a one-of-a-kind, physical touch-point to the exact time and place of Jesus Christ, and relays the exciting miracles experienced by those involved.

One of these involves an extremely rare moonbow, which appeared to Dr. Orna Cohen, principal investigator for the laboratory of molecular and cellular biology at the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases. Dr. Cohen was in charge of the boat’s restoration.

While there’s plenty of fascinating science surrounding the boat’s excavation, preservation, and authentication to the precise time that Christ was alive and living in the Galilee, Alon Kossonogi – CEO of The Jesus Boat Museum Foundation – says these details aren’t what people want to know about.

“Most people care more about the people side of this story, their miraculous experiences, so we’ve tried to include as much of the human element as possible in the DVD,” says Kossonogi.

Weaving two vital, parallel stories, The Jesus Boat Revealed also profiles key people including commanders from the independent war and those instrumental in the establishment of the State of Israel such as Zvi Zamer, former director of Israel’s national intelligence agency, the Mossad.

There are also many appearances by noteworthy people such as Ehud Barak, Israel’s defense minister and labor party leader, and former prime minister of Israel; Skip Heitzig, documentary host and founder and senior pastor of Calvary of Albuquerque; Chuck Smith, Cavalry Chapel founder; Pat Robertson, founder of the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ); Jay Seklow, American attorney and radio talk show host; Franklin Graham, Christian evangelist and missionary; Tim Lahey, American evangelical Christian minister, author, and speaker; and Joel Rosenberg, American communications strategist, author of The Last Jihad series, and founder of The Joshua Fund.

The Jesus Boat Revealed DVD is available at, and other selected providers.
