Now here is an interesting find!! Front page of the National Post this morning although they have been working on the site for the past 18 months. The most exciting discoveries have come in the last couple of week. Prisoners at a maximum security jail in Megiddo, Israel uncovered a Christian Church while excavating to build on the prison. They uncovered beautiful mosaics with images of the fish (ancient Christian symbol) and inscriptions which could shed light on early Christian practices and in particular the Lords supper (use of table instead of altar). Also one of the inscriptions reads "the God Jesus Christ" which has implications for the early churches understanding of the deity of Christ. You can keep your eye on this one as it will raise many scheptics and nay sayers as usual. Archaeologists love to debate the evidence.
