If you're not reading the same bible as the first Christians in 144 A.D. you're reading just...

Description

In 1870, a book was published which covered the exploits of French archeologists deep in the deserts of Syria. They discovered the oldest surviving inscription of Jesus in the world carved into the archway of an ancient church and it was dated 318 A.D. What was shocking wasn't the date - it was who the church belonged to.
