Is Israel hiding the secret source of Christianity?
Jacobovici believes he has discovered the truth about early Christianity and is being targeted from two directions: by the Israeli establishment who want to play down Christian findings in the Jewish state; and by Christians who don’t want their religious beliefs undermined by historical evidence to the contrary. He accuses his detractors of being “sleeper agents of Christian theology, masquerading as academics.”

But the controversy highlights another problem – the possibility that showbiz is corrupting archaeology. In the old days, scholars could spend years excavating a site, and then more years, perhaps decades, marshaling material and publishing their conclusions.

In recent years, a new hunger for publicity and acclaim has changed all that. As the cost of excavations and scholarship has risen, archaeologists have turned increasingly to private sponsors and commercial organizations to ...

Not necessarily, Chris. Just poorly written. There would have been no misunderstanding if the article had been written thus.....

"Yehuda (Judah) bar (son of) Yeshua (Jesus)".

At any rate, the inscription states that someone named Jesus had a son named Judah whose bones were in one of the ossuaries. If it could be established that this Jesus was the Son of God, the implication would be that Jesus had taken a wife and fathered a son. The bible, our final authority, is silent on this in the literal sense. (In the spiritual sense, Christians are brothers and sisters of Jesus.) Hence, the effort to suppress this find.

Even the Jews, of Jesus day knew of the circumstances of his death, and it should be pointed out, Matthew 28:11-15.

The early church was made up primarily of Jews who saw the truth of what one can be called the "Acts Road," (as compared to the Roman or John's Road) and perhaps used quite effectively with Jews, i.e., (See Acts 13:15-42 at )

Well, there have been countless archeological finds of days gone by that have proven to be hoaxes. Some, for monetary gain, and some, solely to discredit Christianity.
I can believe a family tomb being discovered, but Jesus' bones? I have to check, but didn't His entire body rise as opposed to just His spirit?
I'll believe the Bible since it's proven itself reliable and trustworthy. Historically, archeologically, and geographically accurate. Oh, and prophetically...boy, pretty amazing little book we have...
"That tomb contained 10 ossuaries, of which nine are in the IAA store rooms including ones with inscriptions identifying them as containing the bones of “Yehoshua bar Yoseph”, “Miriam”, and “Yehuda bar Yeshua (Jesus)”."

I had to do a bit of checking to learn that “Yehuda bar Yeshua (Jesus)” actualy means "Judah son of Jesus".

Quite right, Christopher

Luke 24:36-39 KJV
36 And as they thus spake, Jesus himself stood in the midst of them, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you.
37 But they were terrified and affrighted, and supposed that they had seen a spirit.
38 And he said unto them, Why are ye troubled? and why do thoughts arise in your hearts?
39 Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have.
