A Really, Really Old Church
The discovery of a third century Christian Church in Israel is quite amazing. If the History Channel hasn’t already got a crew on the ground, they are asleep at the wheel:
Two mosaics inside the church — one covered with fish, an ancient Christian symbol that predates the cross — tell the story of a Roman officer and a woman named Aketous who donated money to build the church in the memory ”of the god, Jesus Christ.”
Perhaps MarkDRoberts can give us his thoughts on such a discovery. And is there an archeology blog out there that could project the course of the dig/recovery effort?
Roberts, btw, has just complete a 30-part, 35,000 word effort on the reliability of the Gospels, a sort of blog-book, and in doing so the accomplished New Testament scholar/pastor may have pioneered a new approach to publishing: Here’s the book. Who wants to bind it?
