Israel: Archaeologists claim to have found home town of Jesus' apostles

Archaeologists claim to have discovered a site that may have been the home town of Jesus' early apostles, on Tuesday, in el-Araj on the northern shore of the Sea of Galilee. The discovery of a Roman-era bath house makes the site a strong contender for the New Testament town of Bethsaida-Julius, where Jesus was also believed to have cured a blind man and home of his apostles Peter, Andrew and... Еще Philip. Many experts had previously assumed that there was no Roman presence at el-Araj, the bath house, a signifier of a Roman 'polis' or city dismantles that idea. Alongside the bathhouse, pottery, coins and a 5th century church mosaic were discovered.
