Public affairs which conducts a tracking poll for the Cook political report. A was the Market went up Down we did t see the trend line for investors diverging from other voters. They be remained a Republican leaning polls suggest the Economy As an Issue slightly favors democrats while National Security the War on terrorism strongly favor republicans. Democrats say the Economy is linked to a whole group of issues that favor them from social Security to prescription drugs. Not Only have democrats looking for a solid boost from claim of Jesus inscription Likely to spark a Long running debate by Richard n. Ostling a religion writer Washington archaeologists Are expecting a Long running debate Over the reported discovery of a first Century inscription naming Jesus of Nazareth. Writing in the new Issue of biblical archaeology review Andre Lemaire of Frances practical school of higher studies says its a very probable that an inscription on a burial Box for Bones refers to Jesus of Nazareth was written around . 63. The inscription reads a James son of Joseph brother of that would fit the new testament account that Jesus had a brother named James the tradition that James was the son of Joseph the husband of Jesus Mother Mary. The sensational claim if True could become one of the great archaeological discoveries in modern times. But there a this major question did this Box name Jesus of Nazareth or some other Jesus after All that name was common in the first Century As were James Joseph. Lemaire pins his circumstantial Case on the unusual naming of both the father brother on a burial Box known As an ossuary. There a Only one other known example with three names so he figures something about the brother must have stood out. Jesus would certainly qualify. However archaeologist Kyle Mccarter of Johns Hopkins University noted at a news conference monday that the brother might have been named because he conducted the burial or owned the Tomb. Hershel Shanks editor of biblical archaeology review talks about the ancient inscriptions on a first Century Stone burial Box that refer to Jesus of Nazareth during a press conference at a Washington hotel monday. Under Christian teaching that would Rule out Jesus of Nazareth who Rose from the grave ascended into heaven decades before James was stoned to death As a jewish heretic in . 62. Two poles of reaction quickly emerged monday. Rev. Ben Witherington Iii of Asbury theological Seminary in Kentucky another news conference speaker sided fully with Lemaire a claim. He a a conservative evangelical who takes the new testament As reliable history. But Robert Eisenman of California state University Long Beach attacked Lemaire a claim calling it a too he figures some a extremely Clever forger must have produced the Box. That fits Eisenmann a sceptical belief that the new testament is highly fictional. He even thinks a a Jesus existence is a very shaky things a something few other scholars photo by a would agree with. Whether Jesus of Nazareth is the person named Lemaire the archaeology Magazine offered a detailed Case against forgery. The Magazine said two israeli government scientists did a microscopic examination of the artefact a a inscription surface Patina. They concluded the Box is ancient there a no evidence of modern tampering. Lemaire said the handwriting is clearly in the style of the first Century . And another specialist the Rev. Joseph Fitzmyer of Catholic University of America agrees. Moreover Lemaire notes that ossuary is were Only in use from 20 . To . 70, fixing the time Frame. Another Issue the owner required Lemaire to shield his identity so the boxes location was not revealed. Nor is anything known about its history Over the past 19 centuries. Biblical archaeology review editor Hershel Shanks said the owner bought the Box about 15 years ago from an Arab antiquities dealer in Jerusalem who said it was unearthed South of the mount of olives. The owner never realized its potential importance until Lemaire examined it last Spring. A something so startling so Earth shattering raises questions about its authenticity a Shanks acknowledged. Lemaire who was raised roman Catholic said his Faith did not affect his judgment since he studies inscriptions Only a was a historian a that is comparing them critically with other the archaeology Magazine is negotiating to display the Box in Toronto during a major convention of religion scholars in late november possibly in the United states. James is depicted As Jesus brother in the gospels head of the Jerusalem Church in the Book of acts Paul a epistles. Until now the oldest surviving artefact that mentions Jesus is a fragment of chapter 18 in Johns gospel from a manuscript dated around . 125. It was discovered in Egypt in 1920. There Are numerous surviving manuscripts of new testament portions from later in that Century. Jesus was mentioned by three Pagan authors in Rome in the Early second Century by the jewish historian Josephus in the late first Century.
