THE DEALER WITH THE OSSUARY. Joe Zias claimed to have seen the James Ossuary without the words “brother of Jesus” in the Jerusalem shop of antiquities dealer Mahmoud Abushakra. This photo, taken by Ludwig Kempe, shows Abushakra standing in the doorway of his shop while Joe Zias (left) and Hans Kempe (right) look on. Abushakra, a reputable dealer, denied ever having in his shop the ossuary Zias described.
