Opening a unique window to the early days of Christianity, this is the definitive account of the recent discovery of the first century ossuary--a limestone bone box--that directly confirms the existence of Jesus. 8-page color insert.
-Publisher

News of the most important archaeological discovery about Jesus -- the inscribed, first-century ossuary of his brother, found near Jerusalem -- generated immediate international media. Since its official unveiling in October of 2002, scholars and archaeologists have hotly debated the authenticity of both the ossuary and its inscription. In response to recent claims challenging the ossuary's authenticity, this updated and revised edition includes: An all-new Introduction that demonstrates that the ossuary itself dates to the first century and compelling arguments that this really is the box that contained the bones of Jesus' brother James. An all-new Appendix that includes the Israeli Antiquities Authority report. Critical responses from Hershel Shanks, Ben Witherington III, Andre Lemaire, the world-renowned scholar who discovered the ossuary and its inscription, and Ed Keall, Near and Middle Eastern Antiquities expert and curator at the Royal Ontario Museum (where the ossuary was exhibited and subjected to independent testing) to the Israeli Antiquities Authority's conclusion that the inscription is a fake.
-Publisher

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. ^
