An archaeologist said there was a "strong case" that the house excavated in Nazareth was the childhood home of Jesus Christ.

Professor Ken Darke of the University of Reading spent 14 years studying the remains of a first century residence beneath a modern monastery.


He said that he first looked at these remains, in the nineteenth century, as the home of Jesus, Mary, and Joseph.


Archaeologists rejected the idea in the 1930s.


The site had long been forgotten since then until Professor Dark launched a project in 2006 to re-investigate the site.


He said, "I did not go to Nazareth to find Jesus' house, I was already studying the history of the city as a Christian Byzantine pilgrimage center.


"No one was more surprised than me."


"As close as possible"


He said that the old dwelling is located under a church dating back to the Byzantine era, which in turn is located under the monastery of the Sisters of Nazareth.


He explained, "We know from written evidence that this church was believed in the Byzantine era that it was built on the site of the House of Christ, and that the house is preserved in its basement."


“It is almost certainly the Church of Initiation, which was dedicated to the formation of Christ, and it was mentioned in the narration of a pilgrim in the seventh century.”

Professor Dark said his work dated the house as dating back to the first century and revealed that the building was carved into the slope of a rocky hill.


He added that the one who built the house had an excellent knowledge of stone-making, something that would be expected of someone who could call it "Tekton", which is the ancient word used for craftsman, and used to refer to Joseph in the Bible.


The archaeologist said that while not all of these factors prove that the house is the home of Jesus, "this is the closest we can be able to say that it has affirmed."
