The James Ossuary

JNS was the source of a story I saw recounting a 20-year-old argument over whether a limestone ossuary (bone box) was authentic or an elaborate forgery. If real it authenticates for the first time (other than the New Testament) that Jesus existed. So I got interested. If you’re not, like I am not, a biblical scholar, you may still find it interesting.

“Clearly, if the James ossuary came from the Talpiot tomb, most would agree that the probability of that tomb being associated with Jesus of Nazareth and his family reaches a high level of likelihood,” James D. Tabor

That’s nice, but Jesus’s presence in the Afterlife, as recounted by many Christian NDEers would seem to be proof enough.

  1. At one point a while back, you mentioned a book that convinced you of an afterlife. Which one was it, if you don’t mind sharing.

  2. Gosh, there are so many convincing books and podcasts that I don’t remember a specific one. Here’s a catch-all site you could try:
    Also, my ebook “Staying In Touch, Talking With The Passed,” details how I came to the knowing and it has a good bibliography. It’s only 99 cents.

  3. Thank you, Mr.Stanley.

  4. You’re welcome, Les. If you like the book, please leave a review.
