Could This Be Jesus’ Boyhood Home?

A British archaeologist may have found the house where Mary and Joseph raised their son.A hillside house dating back to the early first century CE in northern Israel may have been the Nazareth home where Jesus was raised, according to researchers.The stone and mortar house, first identified in the 1880s, is likely to have been the home in which Mary and Joseph brought up their son, claims Dr. Ken Dark, a British 1st century and Christian archaeology specialist, who has been researching the ruins since 2006, the Daily Mail reported Wednesday.Cut into a limestone hillside, the house contains a series of rooms and a stairway. A part of the original chalk floor, as well as a doorway, have survived.While it is impossible to say for certain, there is “no good reason” not to believe it was Jesus’ home, Dark wrote in the latest issue of the Biblical Archaeological Review.
