In 2002 an ossuary was found with the inscription, Jame, son of Joseph, brother of Jesus. I know there was controversy at the time about whose remains this ossuary contained. Anyone know if if was settled definitively and rejected as a connection to Jesus or not?
Also, if it is connected to THE Jesus, wha about he wording “brother?” We’ve been posting a lot about the perpetual virginity of Mary. Did the people of those days inscribe “brother” or “sister” on ossuaries when the deceased was a cousin or step-brother of another named relative?
