The Fathers of the Church
Many more photos of the Jordan church.
I still don’t understand why they’re so sure that it’s the Seventy Disciples’ church, as opposed to being a very old church from very early on, and which has a nice mural of the Seventy Disciples. I mean, we know where Pella is. There’s some nice pictures of what’s left of the town, on Wikipedia.
They are not sure at all, except for the local Bishop, who is very positive. The Church has some connection to the seventy disciples, since one inscription they found mentions them. But you are right. it could simply be a pre-230 AD Church that had a special devotion to the Seventy. Either way, it is a truly amazing discovery, and it would easily qualify as one of the oldest if not the oldest church in existence.
