Ancient Church Re-Buried

Remember late last year when a prison work crew in Israel unearthed a third-century Christian church — perhaps the oldest ever discovered? It had an altar and intact mosaics and dedicatory inscriptions, including one hailing Jesus as God. It seems that excavations have been halted for lack of funds. Unbelievable.
