    The entrance to the Mary of Nazareth International Center in central Nazareth doesn't look like much. It's just a simple doorway off narrow Casa Nova Street, a few hundred yards from the Basilica of the Annunciation. Yet inside this recently built Catholic evangelism center lies an amazing discovery that has sent shockwaves through the world of Biblical archaeology: the remains of a first-century stone house reliably dated to the early Roman period in Palestine. The Nazareth excavations are the first concrete archaeological proof that Nazareth was settled in the time of Jesus - and, judging from the limestone cups found...

  • What happened to Joseph the father of Jesus

    What happened to Joseph the father of Jesus We know very little about the years of Jesus prior to His public ministry. The gospels are without notation of any childhood events beyond Christ's birth except one reference that is found in Luke. It is the very last time that Joseph, the adoptive father of Jesus, is ever mentioned. Luke 2:41 reads: "Every year his parents went to Jerusalem for the Feast of the Passover. When he was twelve years old, they went up to the Feast, according to the custom. After the Feast was over, while his parents were returning...

    The once vibrant Christian communities of Bethlehem and Nazareth, with roots in the "land of Jesus" going back to first century Israel, are rapidly declining in the face of a systematic campaign of persecution conducted by the same Muslim terrorists intent on driving the Jews into the sea. Beatings, sham legal proceedings, property seizures, dismissal and replacement of elected Christian leaders, accusations of selling property to Jews and intimidation by gunmen with links to the government of Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas have so reduced Christian populations in the cities of Jesus' birth and boyhood one community leader predicts all...

    Israel Radio is reporting on Wednesday that the special Israeli Cabinet committee led by Housing Minister Natan Sharansky investigating the controversial proposed mosque adjacent to the landmark Basilica of the Annunciation in Nazareth has completed its work and will soon recommend that the mosque not be built. In recent months, the International Christian Embassy Jerusalem has joined with other Christian ministries and churches worldwide, together with certain Jewish leaders, in a broad alliance to urge Israel to stop the illegal construction of the mosque next to the Basilica, which was being erected at break-neck speed by hostile Muslim elements. As ...

    Christian Arabs Persecuted for Joining IDF By Julie Stahl CBN News Mideast Correspondent Tuesday, December 10, 2013 The 17-year-old son of a Greek Orthodox priest who encourages Christian Arab youth to integrate into Israeli society and join the Israel Defense Forces was brutally beaten in Nazareth over the weekend. Nazareth, the boyhood home of Jesus, has the largest Christian Arab population in Israel. Nazareth-based Father Gabriel Nadaf founded the Forum for Christian Community more than a year ago. Since then the number of Christian Arabs enlisting in the IDF jumped from 35 to 120, with another 500 opting to volunteer...

    Nazareth Muslims: Islam will dominate world March through town described in New Testament as Jesus’ childhood home 'meant to intimidate Christians' Aaron Klein, WND Published: 01.01.07, 19:17 Islamic groups held a large militant march down the main streets of Nazareth this weekend, highlighting for some here the plight of Christians in this ancient city where Muslims have become a majority and members of the dwindling Christian population say they suffer regular intimidation. Nazareth, considered one of the holiest cities for Christians, is described in the New Testament as the childhood home of Jesus. It contains multiple important shrines and churches,...

    Shrine in Jesus’ boyhood home caused much friction JERUSALEM, — Israel decided Wednesday to halt construction of a mosque next to a major Christian shrine in Jesus’ boyhood home of Nazareth, an Israeli official said, a project that had caused friction between Christians and Muslims. THE MOSQUE WOULD stand next to the Basilica of the Annunciation, the largest church in the Middle East, built on the spot where tradition says the Angel Gabriel foretold the birth of Jesus. Construction on the mosque was approved by previous Israeli governments and began several weeks ago. Its foundation has already been completed. The ...

    Is this where Jesus bathed? A shopkeeper running a small souvenir business in Nazareth has made a sensational discovery that could dramatically rewrite the history of Christianity. Jonathan Cook reports Wednesday October 22, 2003 The Guardian (UK) Elias Shama's small souvenir shop in Nazareth, the town of Jesus's childhood, barely catches the eye. Tourists usually pass by it on their way to the neighbouring Mary's Well church, claimed by the Greek Orthodox church as the site where the Archangel Gabriel revealed to Mary that she was carrying the son of God. Before the Palestinian intifada erupted three years ago, the...

    Since 2009, archaeologists have been slowly excavating the ancient town of Magdala—thought to be the home of Mary Magdalene—near the Sea of Galilee. Among their finds has been a first-century synagogue where, experts say, Jesus likely preached. Image: Israel Antiquities Authority Although Jerusalem and Bethlehem are the sites most commonly associated with Jesus, Father Eamon Kelly—vice president of Israel's Magdala Center and vice chargé of the Pontifical Institute Notre Dame of Jerusalem Center—points out that Jesus spent almost his entire life in what is now northern Israel. "Eighty percent of Jesus' public life was here," he tells the Israeli...

    The New Testament says Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea, but one rogue Israeli archaeologist says it is far more likely the Christian savior was born in Bethlehem of the Galilee, more than 60 miles from Jerusalem. Aviram Oshri spent nearly eleven years excavating artifacts in Bethlehem of the Galilee — an ancient biblical village near Nazareth that was later settled by German Templers — which he believes show that the traditional account of Jesus’s birthplace may be wrong. But when he produced his findings for his employer, the Israel Antiquities Authority, he found his proposal dismissed and called...

    It sounds like the plot of a novel. A Jewish tour guide who survived a Palestinian terror attack that left her Christian friend dead helped shelter an Arab teen who got death threats after voicing support for Israel’s summer operation in Gaza. Pic British-born Kay Wilson said that she helped hide Mohammad Zoabi throughout the summer war in Gaza, before he was able to flee to the United States in fear of his life. Seventeen-year-old Zoabi, an Israeli Arab from Nazareth, was forced to leave the country after receiving death threats for posting a YouTube video harshly condemning the kidnapping...

    State Attorney Shai Nitzan on Tuesday evening was said to support submitting an indictment against pro-Hamas Arab MK Hanin Zoabi (Balad), according to Channel 10. According to the report, the indictment will be on charges of threatening police officers, after Zoabi verbally abused two Arab Israeli police officers in Nazareth, and urged Arab youths to attack them. […] The indictment apparently will not be served for other notorious incidents, which include her defending the Hamas terrorists who abducted and murdered three Israeli teens on June 12, saying they weren’t “terrorists” and justifying their actions as a “legitimate” way to “fight...

    Police have been showing less patience for extremist Arab MKs' antics lately, MK Mohammed Barakeh (Hadash) learned Monday in Nazareth when he attempted to storm the local police station. The video shows Barakeh, who has been inolved in numerous scuffles with authorities over the years, trying to storm the Nazareth police station together with an Arab mob. The police form a wall and push the crowd back, and Barakeh eventually finds himself on the ground. Police arrested two of Barakeh's sons, and 21 other citizens, following the large scale demonstration in Nazareth on Monday, which was attended by thousands. The...

    Three relatives of a Muslim Arab youth Mohammed Zoabi from Nazareth, who expressed his support for the abducted yeshiva students in a Facebook video, planned to abduct him to the PA-controlled city of Jenin and harm him there, according to police. Three suspects were arrested Tuesday and brought before a judge for arraignment. They claimed they never meant to carry out their threats, but said they only wanted to "warn" the youth not to continue expressing opinions that are seen as controversial in his family and in Arab society in general. Zoabi, who defines himself as a Zionist, was not...

    As Christians of every stripe in Jesus' hometown of Nazareth begin to again take a real stand for their faith, local Muslims are warning them not to overstep the boundaries of their traditional place in the Middle East (hint: they must remain dhimmis, or second-class). A large billboard hanging at a central point in Nazareth features a picture of an Israeli stop sign, along with the English translation of a verse from the Koran cautioning Christians (and Jews) to speak only the "truth" regarding Allah. The poster (and Koran 4:171) reads: "O people of the Scripture (Christians)! Do not exceed...

    A Christian Arab is working on his plan to build a statue of Jesus in Nazareth, the childhood home of Jesus which is now dominated by Arab Muslim citizens of Israel. It will be, he says, larger than the Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio de Janeiro in Brazil. "Slowly, but surely, the Christian identity in Nazareth is beginning to disappear," said Bishara Shlayan, a Christian merchant seaman from Nazareth who has come up with the plan, according to Fox News. Shlayan told The Jerusalem Post he is raising funds for the project from both Israeli Arab Christians and Jews....
