The Lost Tomb of Jesus

When I first heard about it I thought, what the heck. Not another Holywood money maker. So I started reading about this whole thing everywhere and anywhere i could find. the critics vs the documentary makers. I didn't know what to think, so I took time to watch the whole thing.

they make a very compelling argument. Maybe they found the tomb who knows, but I foudn that they only did the DNA test for Mariamne (Mary Magdalene) and Jesus to find if they shared the same mother a bit suspicious. Alright they found that they were unrelated. But woudn't it have made more sense to check Jesus' DNA with his Mother Maria? (MARY). And since they found one labelled 'Judah son of Jesus' Why didn't they cross check it with Mariamne's? Woudn't their whole case have been proved if they had done the tests? Or if they didn't find enough Mitochondrial DNA to do the test, shoudn't they have mentioned it, so that as viewers we would know that atleast they tried?

The other issue for me was, if it is really the tomb of Jesus the Messiah, where does that leave the believers? No I am not talking about the Christian followers here, I am talking about the Muslims. after all He is our Messiah too. Was he taken up to heaven physically as well as spiritually? I don't know the answer to that, maybe one of you have it, if so feel free to educate me.
