At issue is a limestone burial box, or ossuary, with the inscription "James, son of Joseph, brother of Jesus," that was revealed in Israel's antiquities market last year. It’s gone by a number of names including “The Jesus Box” and “The James Box” and is believed by some to be direct evidence pointing to the earthly family of Jesus Christ.
But what is it—and is it real? And what are the ramifications?
