In Matthew chapter five, verse twelve, Joseph “made a home in a town called Nazareth, so that what had been spoken through the prophets might be fulfilled”. This quote illustrates that Joseph was going to Nazareth in order for a prophecy to be fulfilled. Can this idea be related to Christianity’s strong belief in Jesus? Yes, it can. Christians believe that there was a Messiah who arrived in order to redeem Israel. They even demonstrate that he was a man that saved people from sin. Yet, this is not the only major deed that Christians believed in. Jesus is a man that risked his own life in order to save others. That is a why he forgave people for their wrong doings. His other miraculous deeds include that of healing people and convincing people …show more content…
This house is thought to be his home due to the fact that it has been dated to the first century. The first century is during Jesus’s time. Archaeologists from this discovery discovered a house that is beneath a church. This church, according to Live Science, is described as the “Church of the Nutrition” or St. Joseph. The church happens to contain wonderfully made artwork. These artworks are believed to have been created sometime during the Byzantine Era. An example of this is a statue of Mary, Joseph, and Jesus. Early believers of Christ may have created this to remember everything about Jesus…… Archaeologists believe that this particular house fits the description found in De Locis Sanctis. De Locis Sanctis or Concerning Sacred Places is a body of work about an Irish monk named Arculf. This work was written by an abbot named Adamnan. Adamnan describes Arculf’s travels to the holy land. Descriptions of his travels include details of a great home that contains a church. Consider this quote, “Especially about the sepulcher of the Lord concerning the things whereof we questioned saint Arculf more carefully and the church built over it, of which he himself drew for me in a wax tablet” (Wik ). The work of Adamnan seems to back up the information in regard that this site may be in fact what Arculf talked about. If a Monk went through a journey to mention all of this than Christians must …show more content…
One of them is the Shroud of Turin. This shroud is believed to have been the shroud that actually covered Jesus when he was buried. It is a burial garment used to bury the dead. Being discovered in 1898, the shroud demonstrated an outline of a man with a beard and physical wounds on his body. After this discovery, a team of thirty-three members was created in order to deeply examine the shroud. The team is called the U.S. Shroud of Turin Project. Each member of the team worked days and nights in order to figure out if the shroud contained any blood. The results are striking. Their team of thirty-three members claimed to have found hemoglobin and a positive test for serum albumin. These results do not prove anything, as it is really unsure how the picture is able to remain on the shroud. To them, the shroud is just a mystery. Many of the Vatican’s did not want the testing to stop. By 1988, a carbon-14 test was requested to see how far in history this artifact dates back. The results of the test are shocking. All of the three people who examined the shroud found that it dated between 1260 and 1353. Many Christians today believe that the results are false. The examiners state that they were ninety-five percent positive that their dating is correct (National Geographic). It is to be noted that carbon fourteen testing is often flawed. The individual pieces that were
