Did Jesus have a brother named James? It is the extraordinary question being asked in the new Science Channel documentary, ‘Biblical Conspiracies: The James Revelation’. The documentary also looks at a coffin that claimed to hold the remains of Jesus’ brother. The discovery of the coffin first made headlines in 2002. It’s called an ossuary and the inscription reads: “James, son of Joseph, brother of Jesus.” Many historians believe the artifact is a fake.
