    I tend to agree Shrub....I neither said it was true, or not true, just posing a question. Maybe it was not the most articulate question, but I am no scholar either so....I just find it fascinating that things so old are uncovered even today....And further how fragile we all are to entertain such questions to our faith...With the exception of some ofcourse.

    Oh, there is no doubt that a man name Jesus once existed. There is overwhelming documentation of where he came from, and the lineage is surprisingly detailed for its time. The true question, however, is "is he the Son of God?" I can't answer that.

    A discription that says Jesus of Nazareth, Mary Magdelene, and Judah, and it's coincidently a different Jesus of Nazareth, Mary Magdelene and Judah?

    The thing is, we don't have His DNA. No proof in the forensic sense.

    My theological training has all be self-directed, or rather at His hand. So my perspective is termed "fresh" in theological circles.

    The longer I walk with this Jewish Carpenter the more how I see His whole point of being here has been grossly mis-understood. He gave no law but one, the "mandatum magnum" ..."love one another".

    In some Christian faiths, women are still second class, they can't even preach based on one line in a letter from Paul. And yet we have the acts of Jesus, he "had to cross the Jordan" and enter Samaria [who were despised by Jews].....and what did he do?

    He met and spoke with a woman in the middle of the day as an equal. That alone was viewed as a "sin' in some sects of His faith and certainly a gross social insult, as men did not lower themselves to speak to women in public save to give them orders.

    And what does Jesus do with this prostitute who has "five husbands"? at the end of his little talk, he sends he away with the words "now, go, and tell them I have come."

    In other words, go preach of me to Samaria. He broke every social tenet to speak to a woman, broke more as she was morally judged, and then gives her the responsibility of delivery His message accurately.

    That is not keeping women in their place, and it is not judging on moral grounds, a woman hooker as preacher is what HE is all about

    There is a book called "The Ragamuffin Gospels"....worth reading
    Why were the apostles all male?

    The word is " inscription " and it didn't say " Jesus of Nazareth "

    Just Jesus, brother of James.

    I see. It is James, son of Joseph, brother of Jesus, right? Another coincidence.
