No, but there is a fragment we've discussed within the
past year, discovered in NAKHAL KHEVER.

Then might we rightly conclude that the author(s) of
1Chr. 24:11 and that/those of Ezr. 2:2-10:18 and Neh.
3:19-12:26 were Galileans?  :-)  They didn't write
Yeshu, but the HE and HOLAM were still absorbed to
form "Yeshua."

The questionable Ya'akov ossuary still had written
upon it "Yeshua."  The YESHU acronym is another matter
altogether, isn't it?

P.S. I just wanted to say thanks to you Yigal, a
"kippah wearing" scholar who engages very sensitively
and--shall I say it?--conservatively with Christian
Scripture.  It has been noted by other Jesus-followers
that more often than not, Jews deal quite fairly with
the "Christian part" of the Bible--more so, in fact,
than many so-called Christians.
