Professor Jim Charlesworth (see previous blog posts on the Patio Tomb) has shared with me the following letter from the producer of the ‘Jesus Tomb Discovery’ about the images which were the basis of his analysis.
Dear Prof. Charlesworth,
Attached are two best images of “Yonah” inscription in question. One
image came from the high definition camera and the other one from the
fiber-optic video probe. None of these images were altered, enhanced or
even colour corrected. The difference in colour is due to how these two
cameras process light. In the HD image, you will notice that the
subjects on left and on the right are out of focus. This is because the
HD camera has a shallow depth of field and when you zoom in whatever is
in front goes out of focus. On the left, we are looking at the wall of
the koch, on the right – is the edge of the ossuary with 4 line
I hope this helps.
