Jerusalem – Israeli police have arrested an antiquities dealer in connection with two alleged forgeries, including a burial box once thought to belong to the brother of Jesus.
Oded Golan appeared in a Jerusalem court Tuesday, a day after police picked him up at his Tel Aviv home.
Police allege Golan faked an inscription on the so-called James ossuary to make it appear it belonged to the brother of Jesus.
Now this is old news, but I was thinking about them going to Jerusalem to forge this. In other words “It’s a long way to rip an ossuary.”
