Ted Koppel to Moderate Panel Discussion Following the Lost Tomb of Jesus

'The Lost Tomb of Jesus: A Critical Look' will be an open forum, bringing independent and critical perspectives to the debate regarding possible find of Jesus Family Tomb

SILVER SPRING, Md., Feb. 28 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Given the worldwide interest in the subject, Ted Koppel, Managing Editor of the Discovery Channel, will moderate "The Lost Tomb of Jesus: A Critical Look," a panel versed in archaeology, theology, Biblical research and other related disciplines immediately following the Sunday premiere of "The Lost Tomb of Jesus."

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.

"Inevitably, on a subject as important as this, there will be many unanswered questions," said Koppel. "I expect to raise as many of those as possible."

The forum, produced by The Koppel Group and anchored by Managing Editor Ted Koppel, will air at 11 PM ET/PT on Sunday, March 4, immediately following the world premiere of the documentary which airs at 9 PM ET/PT.
