Jesus and the Ossuaries Craig A. Evans The recent discovery and exhibition of an ancient Jewish ossuary (a burial box) that bears the inscription "James the son of Joseph, brother of Jesus" has stunned scholars and the public alike.

EVANS: Jesus and the Ossuaries 29 form Yeshu,23 which in Greek was usually rendered)Ihsou =j (though there are variants, such as)Iesou =j 24 and)Ie/souoj 25), from which the Latin Iesus and the English Jesus are derived. Inten 1st-century ossuaries were unearthed during excavations in Dov Gruner Street, East Talpiyot, a suburb three miles eastward from the city of Jerusalem.

Ossuaries are rectangular bone-boxes, as distinct from coffins, and are generally made from clay or limestone mortar. The tomb contained ten limestone ossuaries. Six of the ten had names scratched on them: Jesus the son of Joseph, Matthew, Jofa, Judah the son of Jesus, and two with the name of Mary.

Professor Kloner never made any attempt to associate this find with Jesus of Nazareth. His reasons were quite simple. Still more ossuaries inscribed with Jesus and the Ossuaries book, more from Talpiot, more with crosses. There are at least five more ossuaries which bear the name “Jesus”, not in Hebrew but in Greek.

There are at least three other examples( and ) of the name “Jesus” on ossuaries with cross-marks. The ossuaries the authors suggest are part of the "Jesus Family Tomb" are currently on display at Discovery Times Square, and coincides with the publication of Tabor and Jacobovici's book, The Jesus Discovery.

A film titled "The Resurrection Tomb" will air this spring on the Discovery Channel and Vision Television in Canada. The James Ossuary, as it’s come to be known, is a limestone bone box that bears an Aramaic inscription reading “James, son of Joseph, brother of Jesus.” Controversy—including charges of forgery—has surrounded this ossuary since the Biblical Archaeology Review.

Early on it was suggested it might have belonged with another set of six ossuaries found in that had names associated with “Jesus son of Joseph” and his family–opening the possibility that the tomb belonged to the Jesus of Nazareth clan. The book presents what the authors purport to be firm scientific evidence that the James ossuary is the missing tenth ossuary from the Talpiot tomb.

The film makers from The Lost Tomb of Jesus had the outside layer of dirt tested against the other 9 ossuaries that were found in the tomb, and the dirt on the outside of the James ossuary was proven to be made up of the same minerals as the other 9 ossuaries.

A bone box inscribed with the phrase "James, son of Joseph, brother of Jesus" is potentially linked to a tomb in Talpiot, Israel, where the bones of people with the names of Jesus' family members. Get this from a library. Jesus and the ossuaries.

[Craig A Evans] -- "The recent discovery and exhibition of an ancient Jewish ossuary (a burial box) that bears the inscription "James the son of Joseph, brother of Jesus" has stunned scholars and the public alike.

But thousands of similar tombs have been discovered in Jerusalem. And ossuaries were often used for the bones of more than one individual. In fact, according to Dr.

Craig Evans, PhD, author of Jesus and the Ossuaries, the tomb carried the bones of about 35 different individuals, and about half were from these ossuaries. The two provocative works suggest that ossuaries once containing the bones of Jesus of Nazareth and his family are now stored in a warehouse belonging to the Israel Antiquity Authority in Author: Michael Posner.

The James Ossuary is a 1st-century limestone box that was used for containing the bones of the dead. An Aramaic inscription in the Hebrew alphabet meaning "James, son of Joseph, brother of Jesus" is cut into one side of the box.

The inscription is considered significant because, if genuine, Romanization: Ya'akov bar-Yosef akhui diYeshua. The Lost Tomb of Jesus is a documentary co-produced and first broadcast on the Discovery Channel and Vision TV in Canada on March 4,covering the discovery of the Talpiot Tomb.

The Ossuary of James was the archaeological find that triggered the most sensational cover up of the 21st century. From the first charges of forgery in to the absolute silence of the media at the end of the trial in attesting its authenticity, the modern story of the first archaeological evidence of the existence of the master of Nazareth and his flesh brothers, as taught in the : Pierluigi Tombetti.

In Jesus and the Ossuaries, Craig A. Evans helps all readers, expert and layperson alike, understand the importance this recent find might have for the quest for the historical Jesus and any historical reconstruction of early Christianity.

Evans does this by providing an overview of the. In fact, with co-author Hershel Shanks, editor of Biblical Archaeology Review, Ben “wrote the book” on the James ossuary, namely T he Brother of Jesus: The Dramatic Story & Meaning of the First Archaeological Link to Jesus & His Family back inshortly after the public debut of the ossuary.

It remains, in my view, the “gold standard. The first ossuary had the inscription in Aramaic, which read Yeshua bar Yosef/Jesus, son of Joseph. If it is indeed the Jesus tomb, then the remaining eight ossuaries would have to belong to members of the Jesus family. The second inscription on one of the other ossuaries read Maria (Mary in antiquity).

The Jesus Family Tomb tells the story of what may very well be the greatest archaeological find of all time—the discovery of the family tomb of Jesus of Nazareth. Following the accidental bulldozing of a tomb during the building of a housing complex in suburban Jerusalem inarchaeologists from the Israeli Antiquities Authority were immediately called to the scene.

O n 25 February the Discovery Channel announced that a 2, year old tomb may contain the coffins, burial boxes, or ossuaries (two limestone boxes) of Jesus, Mary Magdalene, and a child. The ossuaries were found at a construction site on a hillside in the East Talpiot neighborhood of Jerusalem.

The surprising announcement preceded another announcement made by movie producers in the city. In some cases, the ossuary was also decorated with geometric designs that held symbolic religious value. The individual’s status and his notable accomplishments were also sometimes carved into the side of the ossuary.

The use of ossuaries dwindled following the Jewish Revolt against Roman rule in 66 to 70 CE. Jesus and the Ossuaries by Craig A. Evans,available at Book Depository with free delivery worldwide/5(12). This is really two books in one, and both are excellent. Hershel Shanks (editor of my favorite mag, Biblical Archaeology Review) tells the story of the discovery of the James ossuary, and Ben Witherington describes the person both scholars believe this limestone burial box belonged to: James, the brother of Jesus/5.

As I suggested in my first post on this issue, there is a serious need for clear thinking with regard to the Jesus tomb theory and the names in the tomb. The Jesus tomb theory is only compelling if two items are true: (1) that the Jesus of the tomb’s Jesus ossuary was in fact Jesus of Nazareth, and (2) the names of the people in the tomb are related to the Jesus of this tomb in the same.

The use of ossuaries is a longstanding tradition in the Orthodox remains of an Orthodox Christian are treated with special reverence, in conformity with the biblical teaching that the body of a believer is a "temple of the Holy Spirit", having been sanctified and transfigured by Baptism, Holy Communion and the participation in the mystical life of the Church.

Lindsay authored an essay on the evidence for Jesus in the book "Sources of the Jesus Tradition." "the style of the tomb, the ornamentation of the ossuaries, and everything else about it is. Jesus was born in Judea in BC in the reign of King Jannai and his Queen Salome.

Jesus was educated by Joshua ben Perachyah during the Pharisee Revvolt against King Jannai, BC. Perachyah and Jesus went into exile in Alexandria Egypt. Jesus was there from 12 years old to Jesus came back when King Jannai died in 76 BC.

Unfortunately, the names represented on the ossuaries are extremely common. In his book, Jesus and the Eyewitnesses, Richard Bauckman indicates that the male names in the tomb are among the most popular, with Simon ranking first, Joseph second, Judah fourth, and Jesus sixth, with Mary being the most common female name (Bauckman,p.

This discussion, “Jesus and the Ossuaries: First-Century Jewish Burial Practices and the Lost Tomb of Jesus,” is an attempt to fulfill Peter’s charge, “Be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear” (1 Peter ).

The controversial words are “brother of Jesus.” The documentary “The Lost Tomb of Jesus” presents startling new evidence in the ongoing debate concerning the “James Ossuary.” The James ossuary was found around “The Jesus Family Tomb” was discovered in One of the ten ossuaries.

The tomb in question houses ossuaries (bone boxes) with inscriptions bearing the names of Jesus of Nazareth, the Virgin Mary, Mary Magdalene, and Judas, the son of Jesus. The Jesus Family Tomb tells the story of what may very well be the greatest archaeological find of all time—the discovery of the family tomb of Jesus of Nazareth.

Following the accidental bulldozing of a tomb during the building of a housing complex in suburban Jerusalem inarchaeologists from the Israeli Antiquities Authority were immediately called to the : Ebook. The general public learned about the ossuaries inwhen the BBC filmed a documentary on them and the “findings” tanked again, although more recently, James Tabor’s book, The Jesus Dynasty, tried to revive interest.It would be interesting to know about the Greek inscriptions on the ossuaries or at least in the adjacent tomb which are pictured in the book The Jesus Family Tomb.

It’s the latest variation in a long line of lies that started in Matthew – a claim that the tomb—and ossuary (bone box)—of Jesus has been found and, along with it, the ossuaries of other members of Jesus’ family, including His mother Mary and His alleged wife, Mary Magdalene.

Over 25 years ago, the bones in the boxes were removed and reburied in unmarked graves, but bone.
