Box of Bones

Interesting to note this article (in the Israeli Insider) claims the recently discovered ossuary that purportedly bears an inscription linking it possibly to James, the brother of Jesus, is a fake (not the box but the 'Jesus' part of the inscription). Searching Google News just now, there are no other reports yet to pick up on this 'fact'. Makes me wonder if this 'expert opinion' crosses ethnic and religious boundaries.

THANK YOU! I was getting tired of stories about the box... From even my own parish - I wanted to just get a shirt made that said "Faith, Folks - not Archeology"

I may now :-)
