A biblical scholar has added fuel to the fire on speculation that Jesus Christ had a brother. Ben Witherington, an American new testament expert has firmed up the claims after a ground breaking  archaeological discovery.

In November 2002, a 2000 year old bone box was discovered  with the Aramanic inscription “James,son of Joseph, brother of Jesus” seemingly backing up biblical references to James. Since then,the interpretations of what the term brother could mean has been debated by experts  with some arguing that James could only have been a cousin.

Speaking to CNN, professor Witherington of the Asbury Theological seminary in Kentucky said in an interview that the reading should not be taken literary .

He said “The new testament says nothing about Mary being a perpetual virgin, it says she virginary conceived Jesus and that implies that she went ahead to have more children after that ,and his brothers remains his brothers and sisters.

While scholars may debate just how literary to read the word brother, it is known that James was an important figure in the early christian movement as he is directly referenced in the bible. Paul the apostle credited with spreading the the word  of Christianity  in its early years  wrote in his letter to the Galatians
“Then after three years i did go up to Jerusalem  to visit Cephas and stayed with him 15 days but did not see any other apostle  except James, the Lords brother”.

An artifact  known as “James Ossuary” was discovered in 2002 and  exhibited at the royal Ontario  in 2003  but was later discarded as fake.
