Comments The Brother of Jesus

  1. This was far fascinating than I expected The blurb from Time Magazine sums it up nicely A scientific detective story with extremely high religious stakes.


  2. 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 Jes [...]


  3. This is one of the first of a number of books by different authors leading up to claims that the ossuaries, and some human remains, of several members of Jesus family and apostolic circle may have been discovered The story unfolded gradually owing to apparent fact that the initial discovery of the tomb s there seem to have been two during a construction project was not well exploited The real estate developers and their contracted construction firms were in a hurry The Israeli Antiquities author [...]


  4. A nonfiction book about the recent discovery of an ossuary with the inscription James, son of Joseph, brother of Jesus Intersting and educational.


  5. I was fortunate enough to be taking Archaeology in college when the James Ossuary was revealed to the public It was an exciting event for the class to talk about, and, as I recall, it was a topic everyone wanted for their final term paper Alas, our teacher made us all pick a different topic I ended up writing about the bytdwd inscription found at Tel Dan, but that s another story.The ossuary bone burial box is engraved with the inscription James, son of Joseph, brother of Jesus If this inscripti [...]


  6. This book is great Co authored by Hershel Shanks, editor of the Biblical Archaeology Review, and Ben Witherington III, a seminary professor, the book consists of two parts each covering a different aspect of a box purported to have contained the bones of James, son of Joseph and brother of Jesus.The first half reads with all the intensity of suspense novel It relates the discovery, examination, authentication and unveiling of a limestone box engraved with an inscription designating the remains o [...]


  7. SUMMARY The story of the discovery and authentification of a first century ossuary since proven to be a fake , bearing the Aramaic inscription James, son of Joseph, brother of Jesus , and the implications it has for traditional Roman Catholic and Orthodox belief Although the authors beliefs are clear and the ossuary has since been proven inauthentic, the doctrinal controversies and issues of various denominations are covered very well as is the historical background to the New Testament written [...]


  8. The first half was about finding and authenticating the ossuary It was tedious and boring The second half was about James himself and was excellent Now I m hooked on reading about the trial and the others claiming it s a fraud.


  9. The books was interestingo bad the find was totally discredited as a fraud A rare black mark on Hershel Shanks record
