LOCAL JAMES OSSUARY ARTICLES
Not everyone is in agreement with the Israeli Antiquities Authority's pronouncement on the James Ossuary. Ben Witherington--co-author with Biblical Archaeology Review editor Herschel Shanks of The Brother of Jesus--teaches at Asbury Theological Seminary, just down the road from where I live. Local newspapers are giving his views some play due to the local angle. The daily Lexington Herald-Leader and our weekly Jessamine Journal have articles on Witherington's continued confidence in the bone box's authenticity.
