James ossuary

The James Ossuary is a 2,000-year-old “Bone Box” that many believe belonged to James the brother of Jesus. On the side of the bone box is inscribed in Aramaic: “Ya'akov bar Yosef akhui di Yeshua”, which is translated “James, son of Joseph, brother of Jesus”. As the inscription was the first historic record found of Jesus apart from manuscripts, its authentication could prove to be the most significant New Testament find in modern times. The Biblical Archaeology Review announced the discovery in October of 2002 and published the story in the November/December issue.
