Excavators in West Bank find Early Christian Church

According to a story in the Washington Times credited to the London Daily Telegraph, excavators in Israel have found a very early Christian church. They are now presented with the standard conundrum of preservation vs. digging. Hopefully a compromise can be found. This would be a site of great interest for settling some issues about the history of Israel prior to the monarchy.

    This is exciting news…I’m sure a lot of the local interest centers around the fact that the site is thought to house the Ark of the Covenant. I hope they can explore further while minimizing damage to the site.
