A note on the Amazon ads: I've chosen to display current events titles in the Amazon box. Unfortunately, Amazon appears to promote a disproportionate number of angry-left books. I have no power over it at this time. Rest assured, I'm still a conservative.

Back to Sunday School with you! If you're assigning a reporter to cover the story of the discovery of an ossuary purportedly holding the bones of James, brother of Jesus, then maybe the person should have some familiarity with the Christmas story.


The find is a 20-inch-long limestone ossuary, a container for bones, which some assert might have been used for the burial of the skeletal remains of Jesus' older brother James--"Jacob" in Hebrew and Greek--three decades after the Crucifixion in the 1st Century. [emphasis added]


For those of you Biblically-challenged out there, Joseph and Mary were betrothed when Jesus was born of a VIRGIN. Therefore, James would be Jesus' younger brother.

How many copy editors did that one get through?
