The James Ossuary is undergoing intense scrutiny at a Biblical scholars conference in Toronto where the bone box is on display. That's a good thing. I hope the box is genuine, but if it's not I don't want to be misled. The very fact that the box is there shows the confidence those associated with it have. This is the sort of thing that needs to be debated by supporters and skeptics alike. Hershel Shanks, editor of Biblical Archaelogy Review, sums up much of the oppostition: “There’s a kind of resistance. We don’t want to believe it.”
