===Is this Christianity's first church?===
'''June 10, 2008''': ''Jordan archaeologists have unearthed what could be the world’s oldest church dating back 2,000 years. Scientists explored the underground cavern and discovered a cave underneath the church which they believe is an even more ancient site of Christian worship than the church above it.''
''Archaeologist Abdel-Qader Hussein, head of the Rihab Center for Archaeological Studies, told The Jordan Times: "We have uncovered what we believe to be the first church in the world, dating from 33 AD to 70 AD. Archeeologists have discovered a cave underneath the Saint Georgeous Church in Jordan which they claim dates back to the time of Christ. We have evidence to believe this church sheltered the early Christians - the 70 disciples of Jesus Christ."''
''Mr Hussein said there was evidence that the underground cave was used by the Seventy in the first century after Christ’s death, which would make it the oldest Christian site of worship in the world.''
''The cave was unearthed in the northern Jordanian city of Rihab after three months of excavation and shows evidence of early Christian rituals. It lies under St. Georgeous church, which was built in 230 A.D.''<br><br>
