When a private collector recently revealed an ossuary - or bone box - dating back to the time of Jesus, more than a few scholarly eyebrows were raised. The source of the commotion? An inscription on the side of the box in Aramaic - the very language in which Jesus preached - that reads, "James, son of Joseph; brother of Jesus." It seems that after nearly 2,000 years, historical evidence for the existence of Jesus has come to light, literally written in stone. Follow the story of this potentially groundbreaking find from the first diggings in the very cave where the ossuary was found to the scientific efforts to validate its age. Meet the private collector who brought this discovery to light and learn the truth behind the other man whose existence it may prove: James the Just, brother of Jesus. Learn why many scholars dispute the authenticity of the ossuary and why others believe it is the only archaeological artifact ever found to attest to the existence of Jesus of Nazareth.
