Burial Box of St. James Found

  /   Friday October 25, 2002  

I found this from Catholic Answers to be interesting. A burial box was found that identifies it as the burial box of St. James, identified as the “brother” of Jesus. Amazing what happens when I go away. I’m sure this is old news by now.

In any event, there are two points to discuss:

1. This is good archeological evidence for the historical reality of Jesus as a person.

2. This doesn’t refute the dogma of Mary’s Perpetural Virginity. That cannot be done. Remember that the word “brothers” was used for all kinds of relatives in Biblical times. There was not a word for cousins in their languages.
