The "Jesus tomb" --an Angie Update

My pal Randy Ingersmanson, novelist, physicist, and a man of many talents, has undertaken an explanation of the so-called "Jesus tomb"--the finding that has many people speculating about Jesus's wife and children.

You can read Randy's explanation here: http://www.ingermanson.com/jesus/art/stats.php .

I watched part of the Discovery channel's explanation, and came away more than satisfied with the way the experts called many of the assumptions into question.

To my way of thinking, it's just another attempt to cast doubt on the truth of the Gospel.

I'm trying so hard to remember the name of a novel I read about 10 years ago. In the novel, archeologists found an ossuary in Aramethea (sp?) in a tomb that was supposed to hold the bones of a man named Joseph. The bones had scrapes at the wrists and feet and other clues that they belonged to Jesus.
The discovery shook the world and changed the face of Christianity.
Good book. Can't remember the name... or the author....
