For all my Christian friends and readers:
A major archeological discovery just before Christmas could explain what life was like for Jesus and the Jewish community of Nazareth in which he grew up.
Just 100 meters from the Church of the Annunciation, archeologists have exposed the remains of several walls of a house thought to date to the first century. It is the first time that archeologists have found remains of dwellings in Nazareth from this period.
We are living in amazing times. Our urge to build and know remains just slightly greater than our urge to destroy and blind ourselves; the swings between the two extremes can feel like societal manic-depression at times.
This story was count as belonging to our urge, our need, to know. Fascinating and potentially wonderfully enriching.
