The Jesus Ossuary
It seems that the Jesus family ossuary has caused some grief,
Those who have the faith are shaking their heads in disbelief,
Mary Magdalene was also there which caused everyone to frown,
Was she the wife of Jesus, which could turn everything around?
And Jesus had a brother and a son, they claim was also there,
These findings and the questions could lead the faithful to despair,
Was this the same Jesus that the Romans hung up on a cross?
Might the answers to these questions leave you at a loss?
Archaeologists, filmmakers and statisticians calculate,
The odds about this group of names and tend to speculate,
Two Maries, a Mathew, a Jesus son of Joseph and more,
Then add in some DNA and the odds you just canít ignore
