So, to review:

A: No.

Q: Does an ancient codex discovered in an Egyptian burial cave answer the great Biblical question of why Judas betrayed Jesus? 

A: No.

Q: Does the discovery of an extraordinary 2000 year-old burial box bring to light the remarkable story of Jesus’ brother James?

A: No.

Q: Are pieces of the cross Jesus died on still in existence today? 

A: No.

Q: Could ancient texts preserved in the sands of Egypt shed light on the nature of Mary’s relationship with Jesus?

A: No. 

Etc., etc.

We have had many good experiences here -- great service, beautifully presented sashimi. But today the white tuna was definitely off, and the red tuna was not fresh. We pointed it out in a friendly way but didn't get much feedback or explanation. We won't be returning after this. Disappointing because we had enjoyed several previous visits.
