About The Book
For 2000 years we’ve gone without archeological evidence of Jesus & his family…until now. This is the inside story of a momentous archeological discovery: the 1st-century ossuary of Jesus’ brother, James, head of the Jerusalem church. Reportedly found just outside ancient Jerusalem, the fragile limestone burial box bears the inscription « James, son of Joseph, brother of Jesus. » The ossuary & its inscription are now regarded as authentic by top scholars. They represent the 1st visual, tangible, scientific evidence of Jesus’ existence. The implications are monumental for understanding Jesus, his family & the Jewish Christian movement during Christianity’s formative years. Hidden for centuries, the ossuary was purchased years ago by an Israeli collector unaware of its importance. Only when the French scholar Andre Lemaire saw the Aramaic inscription in 4/2002 was its significance discovered. In 10/2002, Lemaire announced the news, asserting it was almost certain that the inscription referred to the biblical Jesus, his father Joseph & his brother James. Controversy immediately erupted over the age & authenticity of the inscription. The discovery also rekindled an ancient debate over whether Mary was a virgin — a doctrine still dividing Catholics & Protestants. Hershel Shanks, a central figure of biblical archeology, who led a campaign to make the Dead Sea Scrolls available to the world, recounts the story of the ossuary’s discovery & authentication. Ben Witherington III, a New Testament scholar, shows how the discovery reveals surprising facts about a story people thought they knew: How Jesus was raised in a large, religiously conservative Jewish family; how his siblings were skeptical about his claims — until he died; how Jesus’ brother James went on to head the Jewish Christian movement in Jerusalem, becoming the leader Peter & Paul looked to for guidance & approval; how James brokered a major church controversy of the 1st century & wrote a biblical book; how he was martyred & written out of history by the Roman Church. The ossuary’s discovery allows reacquaintance with the historical figure Paul called a « pillar of the church. »
