Ancient Christian Church Found Under Israeli Prison
Another great archaeological discovery in Israel...
JERUSALEM (AP) - Israeli archaeologists on Saturday said they have discovered what may be the oldest Christian church in the Holy Land on the grounds of a prison near the biblical site of Armageddon.
The Israeli Antiquities Authority said the ruins are believed to date back to the third or fourth centuries, and include references to Jesus and images of fish, an ancient Christian symbol.

Revelation 16:15-17 (King James Version)
15 Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he
walk naked, and they see his shame.
16 And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon.
17 And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the
temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, "It is done."
The newspaper article states that this church is near the biblical site of Megiddo, which is the site of Armageddon?
Let's review what the word Armageddon means:
The word 'Armageddon' is Hebrew for a place.
This verse states clearly that this word ARMAGEDDON, MUST be understood in the “HEBREW tongue.” In modern times, the Hebrew language has been revived from a dead language to a living language. It is the national language of Israel - of the Jews
The word ‘Armageddon’ is made up of three Hebrew words presented below in an anglicised form:
Arema – a heap of sheaves
Gai – valley
Dan – judgement.
When all these elements are combined, the word is found to mean:
‘A heap of sheaves in a valley for judgement,’
So, I disagree with the newspaper article that Megiddio where this church was found is the site of Armageddon. Please, if anyone thinks that I am wrong on this, prove it otherwise...
