On the basis of the distribution of two linguistic features found within this inscription, Paul Flesher has argued that it is more likely that the James Ossuary inscription comes from the Galilee or southern Judea in later centuries (most likely the fourth or fifth century). The response discusses the methodological shortcomings of Flesher?s treatment of the linguistic evidence. It is argued that the language of the inscription fits into Jewish Palestinian Aramaic of the second century CE onwards, possibly earlier.
