The first definitive account of what scholars and the media are calling 'the most important archaeological discovery' about Jesus and his family.

This is the definitive story of the recent discovery of the first–century ossuary (limestone bone box) with the legend 'James, son of Joseph, brother of Jesus', and its implications for understanding Jesus, his family (mother, father, brothers), his followers, the first Christians and the Jewish Christian movement in Jerusalem that James led. This ossuary is the first ever archaeological discovery directly confirming the existence of Jesus, and his relationship to his father, Joseph, and brother, James, who became the leader of the important Jewish Christian community in Jerusalem. No one is as qualified and well connected to recount the discovery and its authentication as Hershel Shanks, whose magazine first broke the story.

This was in the news again, 10 years after the first edition of this book, as a judge declared that the collector who first brought the ossuary to light couldn't be declared a fraud. For every expert who claimed the inscription was faked, others could show it isn't.
Really, much hasn't changed since this book was published. It gives a compelling case why there is a high probablilty that the inscription is real. It also addresses the claims of those who think it was a hoax. Many will be surprised that a close look at their claims reveals much uncertainty on the skeptics' part. Their claims of "hoax" aren't as cut and dry as they made it sound. It's like they want it to be a hoax and grasp at straws trying to prove their assertion. A great read to illuminate the vague headlines.

There is much controversy about much of these books as all the names used are very familiar to all of Israel. Most of what has been collected is bone boxes with inscription on all and some authenicated and some not. James was one of four brothers of Jesus. Jesus also had two half sisters as well, but the Catholic Church only says they are cousins and none of that is authenicated either. Iampresently reading several books of this nature. Most Roman catholics would consider this book a lie as what the Bible says about brothers, Roman catholics percieve as cousins and that Mary and Joseph never consumated their marriage, such nonesense from a Church that wants it people to have loads of children.

Excellent information regarding James, archaeology, collectors, and the specifics of the James, Son of Joseph Brother of Yeshua ossuary. Worthwhile and well-written.

Order met my expectations.

The book was a paper back and I wanted a hardback, but kept it as it was a gift. The book looked like it had sun damage.
  • Binthars
THIS BOOK WAS REAL...ALL THE SUBJECT MATTER WAS A COMPLETE FRAUD AS THE ANTIQUE DEALER WHO MADE A FAKE COFFIN WAS RIDICULED BY AUTHORITIES FOR THE BASIS OF THIS BOOK.

This is really two books in one, and both are excellent. Hershel Shanks (editor of my favorite mag, Biblical Archaeology Review) tells the story of the discovery of the James ossuary, and Ben Witherington describes the person both scholars believe this limestone burial box belonged to: James, the brother of Jesus. I’ve been following Shanks’ arguments in BAR over the years, so I already know he’s a proponent of the ossuary’s authenticity.

The box itself is inscribed “James, son of Joseph, brother of Jesus.” The Bible agrees: Jesus’ father was Joseph and one brother was James. The box was discovered in the collection of a private collector, who had no recollection of its origin … and no idea of its potentially incredible value. It’s dated pretty accurately to the first century, so while we cannot say with any certainty that it’s authentic to THE Jesus, both authors are convinced it’s an authentic first-century bone box.

This practice of removing the bones from the tomb and burying them again in a small box was practiced only for a short time, from about 20 BC to 70 AD. This, too, points to the period of Jesus. But what are the odds that this box once held the bones of the brother of Jesus? All three of these names—Jesus (Yeshua), James (Ya’akov), and Joseph (Yosef)—were quite common back then, but it’s still possible to estimate the odds. One estimate is that about 20 such James’s (with the indicated brother and father) would have lived in that period; another estimate is between 2 and 4. But how many would have a brother so famous that his brother’s name would be indicated on his ossuary? That would be a rarity. If this is the brother of the “real” Jesus, then, as Shanks posits, this little box may be “the most astonishing find in the history of archaeology.”

Then Witherington takes over halfway through the book to tell us about James, the brother of Jesus. Who he was, what he taught, how he died. While Peter and Paul may have become the most famous apostles, James was in reality probably the most important after the death of Jesus. He was appointed as the head of the Jerusalem church, the mother church.

Among other things, Witherington goes head to head with the Catholic doctrine of Mary’s perpetual virginity. While the Bible lists several brothers of Jesus, Catholics maintain that Mary remained a virgin after Jesus was born, and many believe the listed “brothers” are really just cousins. This idea was promoted by St. Jerome. Witherington quotes John P. Meier, a leading Catholic New Testament scholar, as saying that if the James ossuary is authentic, it is probably the last nail in the coffin of Jerome’s view of the brothers of Jesus being cousins.

I’ve always enjoyed the writings of both these authors, and this book doesn’t disappoint.
