PANDORA'S BOX REDISCOVERED:

My Books & Culture column is normally monthly but, because of a changed release date, it was doubled up this month. The subject of today's piece is the fallout from the discovery of the bone box with the inscription, "James son of Joseph brother of Jesus":

Shanks and Witherington are far from alone in their belief in the inscription's authenticity. Craig A. Evans, for instance, is a professor at Acadia Divinity College who has written his own book on the subject, forthcoming from Baylor University Press and tentatively titled Jesus and the Ossuaries. "Contrary to some misguided and wrongheaded reports that were in the popular media," says Evans, the Aramaic writing is appropriate for the time period. Plus, all the other indicators seem to add up.

But add up to what? [more]
