Five-and-a-half years ago the world of biblical archaeology was rocked to its foundations, and all because of a box. It was a stone box - called an "ossuary" - that had been discovered in Israel. Ossuaries were used to hold the bones of the dead some 2,000 years ago, in the time of Jesus. And this ossuary was said hold the bones of Jesus' brother, James.

all that over some words writen on the side of an old *** stone box. This is one of those religious things that will be discredited because it doesnt conform to the current edition of the bible.

The only one who stands to benifit from proving this thing is real are people like me who can get a good laugh out of it.
"The bible was wrong :boohoo:" :sidelol::sidelol:


It does bring up some good questions though.
How common was the name jesus back then? could there have been more than one guy named jesus? Was it as common as Bill or James is today?

How do you know someone wasnt just being a smart *** 2000 years ago?

It's about time somebody told the story of the overlooked brother, James Christ.

LOL :sidelol:

Little info for you guys on the subject. At the time of Jesus' death there were 13 other religious sects claiming to have a deity or prophet at the head of their group.

The only difference between Jesus/Christianity and those sects is that no one in those groups claimed their prophet had been resurrected.

Remember, the Bible never speaks much of the resurrection itself. Only that Jesus meets a man on the road and tells him to spread the word of his return.

Now I wasnt there (and neither were ANYONE) so obviously this is speculation to an extent. Some have said Jesus was the son of a Roman soldier, this is probably the likeliest scenario.

Considering the person who found these "relics" has a shady record of fraud, most scholars think this is garbage. There really has to be detailed pictorial evidence of WHEN something like this has been excavated to give it any credibility. Unfortunately, there isn't any.

The bible related posts have been moved to the bible thread.

I'm sure many Catholics would be pissed at this, because of the "virgin birth" and all.

But wasnt Joesph older than Mary? Therefore its possible that he could have had kids of his own before they married.

I don't know what point you are trying to make, it is widely known and accepted that Joseph and Mary had many more children after Jesus. Jesus had brothers and sisters.

Yea, I was always taught that Jesus had brothers (the brothers are mentioned by name in the Bible IIRC). Theres no mention of sisters, but there wouldn't be because the Bible only lists the males in families. I believe it was in one the gospels, the pharisees saw Jesus perform a miracle or something and they said "is this not the son of Joseph and brother of so and so". I might be trippin out :unsure:

I might be trippin out :unsure:This could be the verse you are referring to:


Matthew 13:55 (http://www.carm.org/kjv/Matt/matt_13.htm#49) - "Is not this the carpenter's son? Is not His mother called Mary, and His brothers, James and Joseph and Simon and Judas?" (http://www.carm.org/kjv/Matt/matt_13.htm#49)

There is mention of his sisters here:



Mark 6:2-3 (http://www.carm.org/kjv/Mark/mark_6.htm#1) - "And when the Sabbath had come, He began to teach in the synagogue; and the many listeners were astonished, saying, "Where did this man get these things, and what is this wisdom given to Him, and such miracles as these performed by His hands? "Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary, and brother of James, and Joses, and Judas, and Simon? Are not His sisters here with us?"
