Archaeologists working the city of Nazareth have unearthed what they believe to be the childhood home Jesus Christ. Following an arduous, 14-year excavation the site the Sisters of Nazareth Convent, researchers say they believe the first-century home is where Jesus grew as a child. Lead researcher Professor Ken Dark embarked 14 years research and fieldwork the ancient site. He says his studies of the well-preserved abode a limestone hillside revealed "excellent craftsmanship" and a "structural understanding rock". He says this is, "consistent with it having been constructed a tekton" - the occupation of Jesus' father, Joseph.
Professor Dark says the dwelling was originally found the 1880s and was first excavated the 1930s. For decades, experts and nuns living the convent have asserted that the site was Jesus’ boyhood home. Dark started his dig in 2006 to investigate these assertions. He said the site had been "almost forgotten scholars". He used cutting edge archaeological techniques to uncover more secrets the house. Dark discovered that people believed that the building was Jesus’ house from least the 380s. However, he says his claims are not conclusive and acknowledges that we may never know sure whether or not Jesus Christ lived that location.
