According to LiveScience, the house was cut into a rocky hillside and is partly made of mortar-and-stone walls. It was discovered by nuns at the Sisters of Nazareth convent in the 1880s, but it wasn’t until 2006 that archaeologists led by Ken Dark, a professor at the University of Reading in the United Kingdom, dated the house to the first century and identified it as the location where people centuries after Jesus’ time believed Jesus was raised.


It is unknown whether Jesus actually lived in the house in real life, but Dark believes it is possible.

“Was this the home of Jesus’ childhood? On archaeological grounds, it’s impossible to say “In an article published in the journal Biblical Archaeology Review, Dark wrote. “On the other hand, there is no compelling archaeological reason to dismiss such a finding.”

Jesus is said to have grown up in the town of Nazareth. Archaeologists discovered that the Byzantine Empire (which controlled Nazareth until the seventh century) decorated the house with mosaics and built a church known as the “Church of the Nutrition” over it to protect it centuries after Jesus’ death.


Crusaders who travelled to the Holy Land in the 12th century restored the church after it had fallen into disarray. According to Dark, this evidence suggests that both the Byzantines and the Crusaders believed this was the home where Jesus was raised.
