Christian Headline News recently carried a headline which read as follows, “A Strong Case’ that Jesus’ Boyhood Home Has Been Found”. It was based on the findings of a United Kingdom archaeologist says the remains of a first-century house in Nazareth, Israel, could have been the home of Joseph, Mary and the boy Jesus. Ken Dark, a professor of archaeology and history at the University of Reading, told the BBC that there is a “strong case to be made” that the site which lies beneath the Sisters of Nazareth Convent was the home in which Jesus was raised. Professor Ken Dark began researching the site in 2006 and wrote about his findings in a new book entitled, The Sisters of Nazareth Convent: A Roman-period, Byzantine, and Crusader site in central Nazareth.
Professor Dark told the BBC, “I didn’t go to Nazareth to find the house of Jesus, I was actually doing a study of the city’s history as a Byzantine Christian pilgrimage center; nobody could have been more surprised than me.” He further explained that whoever constructed the house would have had excellent knowledge of stone-working. The Bible, in Greek, calls Joseph a “tekton,” which can be translated “craftsman” or “builder.” The dwelling dates to the first century, he says.
From written evidence, according to Dark, this particular church building was believed in the Byzantine period to have been built on the site of Jesus’ home and the dwelling preserved in the floor of the structure. He told the BBC that It is almost certainly the Church of the Nutrition, which was dedicated to the upbringing of Jesus Christ, and mentioned in a Seventh Century pilgrim’s account. The home, he said, was “a typical family home of its time and place.” There was nothing unusual about it. It is not pitifully poor, but there’s no sign of any great wealth either. It’s very ordinary, Dark said. “If this is the childhood environment of Jesus, there’s no reason to believe He grew up in anything other than a very typical Galilean rural home of its time.”
We are grateful for these discoveries that are made from time to time, giving evidence to the fact that Jesus really came to this earth in our interest. Regardless of how some try to deny it, the fact remains that Jesus came to this earth as a babe, developed into an adult, ministered to mankind for three and a half years, gave his life as a sacrifice, rose again and ascended back to heaven to return for His chosen ones at the appointed time. Amen!
