‘Jesus Tomb’ objects coming to the Franklin Institute in Philadelphia

Objects from what has been called the “Jesus Family Tomb” are coming to the Franklin Institute in May.

Among them is a bone box, or ossuary, bearing an inscription that can be translated as “Jesus son of Joseph,” part of a major exhibit of Israeli artifacts in which the Dead Sea Scrolls have the starring role.

Also attention-getting will be a re-creation of the sacred Western (or Wailing) Wall that includes a three-ton stone from the actual landmark.

The Franklin Institute and New York’s Discovery Times Square – where the exhibit is running through late April – teamed up to stage the touring show, created by the Israel Antiquities Authority.
