Talpiyot Tomb - Yeshua bar Yoseph

This inscription is said to read Yeshua bar Yoseph - Jesus son of Joseph. And the implication is that this is Jesus of Nazareth.

I read 2 experts as saying not Yesuha so would that be a 80% possibility of the name even being a Yeshua

see Steve Caruso I know when you "know" what writing is you can then see the word - but Steve doesn't think it is Yeshua or Bar either

I see all over the net:
Stephen Pfann, a biblical scholar at the University of the Holy Land in Jerusalem who was interviewed in the documentary, also gives little credit to the film's theory. According to the same story in the Associated Press, he even thinks that the name on the key casket is more likely "Hanun" than "Jesus."

I did not find an actual page by Stephen on this but here is his take on Statistics etc
http://www.uhl.ac/JudeanTombsAndOssuaries.html
and includes usage of names including Hanun

My reading of the Gospels is that Jesus Christ was identified as "son of Joseph" about 4 times and other times as "son of Mary" and more often as Jesus of Nazareth. Note the film web site says the tomb contained the name of Jesus of Nazareth (which it does not). So they themselves think that is the name he was known by rather than Jesus bar Joseph. It is expected that a person from Galilee buried in Jerusalem would be shown with name of place they came from.

This person seems to be another Yeshua or even an Hanun
