Have you heard of the James Ossuary? Could this be the bone storage box from Jesus' 1/2 brother James? Does the presence or absence of patina matter? What about Jesus' birth? Does the Bible allow for Jesus to have been born on December 25th? Is it possible He was conceived, as well as crucified, on March 25th (in different years) and born 9 months after March 25th or is that 'fake news'? Is Dr. Andrew McGowan's explanation related to paganism correct? What does the Bible and history teach us? Should Christians observe December 25th or not? Dr. Thiel addresses these issues and more.
