Christian scam debunked (mrc)
A quick google search on "james jesus brother" turned up the following
The new find is also significant in that it corroborates the existence
of Joseph, Jesus father, and James, Jesus brother and a leader of the
early Christian church in Jerusalem. The family relationships
contained on the new find helped experts ascertain that the
inscription very likely refers to the Biblical James, brother of Jesus
(see, for example, Matthew 13:55-56 and Galatians 1:18-19). Although
all three names were common in ancient times, the statistical
probability of their appearing in that combination is extremely slim.
In addition, the mention of a brother is unusual--indicating that this
Jesus must have been a well-known figure.
