James the Just


A 2,000-year old limestone ossuary, that's rested in a private collector's hands for the past 15 years, bears an Aramaic inscription dedicated to
James the Just, brother to Jesus and leader of the early 'Christian' church in Jerusalem.

For an excellent and thorough history of scholarship surrounding the existence of James (and the challenge that the fact of James' existence has posed to the Roman-Catholic Church) read James the Brother of Jesus: The Key to Unlocking the Secrets of Early Christianity and the Dead Sea Scrolls
by Robert Eisenman.
