The current church is a two-story building constructed in 1969 over the site of an earlier Byzantine-era and then Crusader-era church. Inside, the lower level contains the Grotto of the Annunciation, believed by many Christians to be the remains of the original childhood home of Mary. Another Christian tradition asserts that the Church of St Joseph in Nazareth is built over the carpentry workshop of the husband of the Virgin Mary. Excavations conducted in 1955 tell us much about Nazareth at the time of Jesus. They show that Nazareth was a small agricultural village of between 200 and 400 people living in 35 homes spread over ten acres. The village's growth was hindered by its poor water supply. They further show that Nazareth was small and insignificant. less

It was a windy, chilly day and the place was mostly empty except for a team of archeologists busily digging away near the Roman theater. Philippi features prominently in the New Testament. It was Paul and Silas’s first stop in Europe. It is the place where they were thrown into prison, only to be rescued by an earthquake. Later, Paul wrote a letter to the Philippian church that ultimately made its way into the cannon of the New Testament. While in Philippi, Paul met a woman named Lydia. Lydia was a “God fearer,” a term Luke and Paul used to describe Greeks who sympathized and worshiped with Jews. The ruins are about half a mile from a small creek. The Bible mentions that Paul met Lydia as she was washing cloths by a river. So, I drove down to check out this famous location. It is nothing more than a drainage ditch that runs past a garbage dump! www.frakesproductions.com less
