    WASHINGTON — A burial box that was recently discovered in Israel and dates to the first century could be the oldest archaeological link to Jesus Christ, according to a French scholar whose findings were published Monday.

    An inscription in the Aramaic language -- "James, son of Joseph, brother of Jesus" -- appears on an empty ossuary, a limestone burial box for bones.

    Andre Lemaire said it's "very probable" the writing refers to Jesus of Nazareth. He dates the ossuary to A.D. 63, just three decades after the crucifixion.

    Lemaire, a specialist in ancient inscriptions at France's Practical School of Higher Studies, published his findings in the November/December issue of Biblical Archaeology Review.

    Could be, but I smell a hoax. I'm always suspicious when "the location remains secret" and the owner is "unidentified."

    It would be great if true.

    Great way to sell another book though.
