Abstract

The chances that the newly published ossuary inscription of ‘James, son of Joseph, brother of Jesus’ is a forgery are negligible. The possibility that another James than the one known from the NT as Jesus’ brother is meant here, seems to be almost excluded on the basis of a combination of statistical considerations and Jewish epigraphic habits. The article further discusses the possible implications of the new find for the study of earliest Christianity.
