Well, one of the bone boxes had possibly Jesus' name on it (in Hebrew I think) and another ossuary (bone box) excavated from the same family tomb had bones of a female and possibly Mary Magdalene's name carved on the box so they did a DNA test to see if the Jesus bones and the Magdalene bones were related and they weren't so they postulated that these two were married. Awww, isn't that sweet. Heart

Anyway there were other boxes in the tomb with names from Jesus' family (or so the bible story goes) so some think it might be Jesus and his family. Haha, married with children just like the rest of us poor slobs. Now it seems to me the whole resurrection story wouldn't work if his bones are sitting in a damn box. Maybe this is what the family did with the gold Jesus got for his birth day. They built a nice family crypt.

Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

Would prove nothing, though. Nice story, needs more dragons.

RE: Bones of Jesus
I think there is some confusion here with the ossuary of James, brother of Jesus. A known fake.

Here it is,

I will call him a liar and a dog here and now.

Or some such other BS that they'll make up.

So if he's in heaven without his bones do they call him Floppy Jebus.

Floppy Jebus is officially my new word for him.
