WORLD'S OLDEST CHURCH
..

BELIEVED DISCOVERED IN JORDAN
.
Jordanian archaeologists believe they have found the world's oldest church. The cave reveals evidence of Christian rituals performed 2000 years ago.

The church, which is actually a cave, was found underneath Saint Georgeous Church, which itself dates back to 230 AD, in Rihab in northern Jordan near the Syrian border.

.
Archaeologists in Jordon have claimed to have unearthed the world's oldest proper
church in the world, dating back 2,000 years;  built in 230 AD.
.

A Jordanian worker descends to a cave under the church of Saint Georgeous in the northern
Jordanian town of Rihab, thought by archaeologists to be the very first church in the world.
.
Archaeologists in Jordan have announced the discovery of a cave under the church Saint Georgeous in Rihab which
they believe was used as far back as between 33 AD to 70 AD to shelter early disciples of Jesus Christ, making the cave
the first Christian church in the world, the Jordan Times reported.  -  June 10, 2008, AFP/Getty Images
.
This status is only challenged by a church unearthed in Aqaba in 1998, also dating back to 3rd century.
.
According to the report, the cave also embraces the living place of the first Christians. "A wall with an entrance is the only partition separating the altar from the living area," Abdul Qader al-Husan, said, adding it is believed that Jesus Christ and the Virgin Mary passed through this area.
.
"We have evidence to believe this church sheltered the early Christians: the 70 disciples of Jesus Christ," Abdul Qader al-Husan was quoted as saying by the Agence France Presse and the Jordan Times newspaper.
.
The early Christians, described in the mosaic inscription on St. Georgeous floor as "the 70 beloved by God and Divine", are said to have fled from Jerusalem during the persecution of Christians, to the northern part of Jordan, particularly to Rihab, the scholar said.
.
The 70 disciples were early followers of Jesus. The Gospel of Luke 10:1-24 says that Jesus appointed them and sent them out in pairs to spread his message. Citing historical sources, Husan explained that these early Christians lived and practiced their religious rituals  in secrecy  in the underground church. "We believe that they did not leave the cave and lived until the Christian religion was embraced by Roman rulers," the scholar said.
.

in the cemetery of Saint Georgeous church in the northern Jordanian town of Rihab.
Pottery finds from the cemetery suggest that the early Christians that may have used
the cave, remained in the area until Roman times.  -  June 10, 2008 AFP/Getty Images
.
In addition to several stone seats that were probably used by clergy and a circular-shaped area that served as an apse, archaeologists found pottery that dates back to between the 3rd and 7th centuries, indicating the church was used until late Roman rule. There is also a deep tunnel that is thought to have led to a source of water.
