Egyptian Coffin and James Ossuary

With Clyde Billington

The latest issue of ARTIFAX magazine is out and we need to catch up on some news items with my co-editor, professor Clyde Billington. The cover story covers the discovery of a unique Egyptian style coffin found in the Jezreel Valley. We also discuss a new geological perspective on the authenticity of the controversial James Ossuary, the bone box that may have held the earthly remains of Jesus’ brother. Our final news item concerns some discoveries made along side the road in two locations in Israel’s Shephelah, including a 6,000 year-old temple.
