(Worthy News) – A team of Israeli and American archaeologists say they’re digging deeper into the past of a historic Christian basilica, in today’s northern Israel, offering theories as to how its structure changed over the years.
Known as the Church of the Apostles, the basilica was noted by a Bavarian bishop who, in 724 A.D., placed it in the biblical city of Bethsaida. In the New Testament, Bethsaida is where Jesus performed miracles and the birthplace for several apostles. Apostles Peter and Andrew, according to Bishop Willibald’s account, lived in a residence on top of which the church was built.
Last week, a team of Israeli and American archaeologists revealed additional pieces of the church’s mosaics – purportedly uncovered for the first time in 1,500 years. [ Source: Fox News (Read More…) ]
