    Default House unearthed in Nazareth that Byzantines, Crusaders believed was Jesus' house

    I got no better forum than News to put this in, so if an administrator happens by and wants to move, no objections from the OP.

    Jesus' House? 1st-Century Structure May Be Where He Grew Up

    Archaeologists working in Nazareth — Jesus' hometown — in modern-day Israel have identified a house dating to the first century that was regarded as the place where Jesus was brought up by Mary and Joseph.
    ---
    Crusaders who ventured into the Holy Land in the 12th century fixed up the church after it fell into disrepair. This evidence suggests that both the Byzantines and Crusaders believed that this was the home where Jesus was brought up, [Professor of Archeology Ken] Dark [of the UK's University of Reading] said.
    Finds like this I don't usually get into because the tendency of the discover is to say unequivocally but without any real evidence "this" -- whatever this is -- "is the house where X was born/lived/died/etc. This is kind of a neat story. Pics below

    This would be neat if this is the house that Jesus was raised in.
    The second picture looks more like a burial tomb, and Jesus was not put in the families burial tomb. Still another story, and find by archaeologists to prove more truth to biblical stories in front of naysayers.

    Story will be followed with "yeas" and "nays", doubt if the Truth will be known to us........but, maybe?
    Hebrews 13:5 .) Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.
    6 .) So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.

    Sorry, I neglected to clarify what that picture is. Two tombs were set into the rock next to the house some years after Jesus' time on Earth, according to the cutlines that go with the pics.
