Archaeologists in the city of Nazareth believe they have found the childhood home of Jesus Christ. They have been working for 14-years on the site at the Sisters of Nazareth Convent. They believe the first-century home is where Jesus grew up as a child. Researcher Professor Ken Dark researched and did fieldwork at the ancient site. He says his studies of the well-preserved hillside abode revealed "excellent craftsmanship" and a "structural understanding of rock". He says this is, "consistent with it having been constructed by a tekton" - the job of Jesus' father, Joseph.

The dwelling was first found in the 1880s and first excavated in the 1930s. For decades, experts and nuns at the convent have asserted that the site was Jesus' boyhood home. Dark said the site had been "almost forgotten by scholars". He used cutting edge techniques to uncover more secrets about the house. He discovered that people believed the building was Jesus' house from at least the 380s. However, he says his claims are not conclusive. He acknowledges that we may never know for sure whether or not Jesus Christ lived at that location.
