Court: James Ossuary Not Proven to be a Forgery

Oded Golan was found not guilty by a Jerusalem court. Golan was accused of having forged the engravings on a burial tomb which reads in Aramaic, "Yaakov, son of Joseph, brother of Yeshua". Many translate the inscription to read in English, "James, son of Joseph, Brother of Jesus." The large stone box was found in Jerusalem in 2002.  

Golan told Reuters news on Wednesday, "I am glad that I was found innocent of all the very serious allegations."
