Are you interested in Archaeology: A tomb believed to be that of Philip the Apostle was unearthed during excavations in the ancient Turkish city of Hierapolis. Italian professor Francesco D’Andria said archeologists found the tomb of the biblical figure – one of the 12 original disciples of Jesus – while working on the ruins of a newly-unearthed church. Philip, recognized as one of Christianity’s martyrs, is thought to have died in Hierapolis, in the southwest city around 80 A.D. It is believed he was crucified upside down or beheaded. (Reported by Fox News, July 27, 2011) Amazing that ever so often discoveries like this are made to validate Scripture. Even if discoveries aren’t made would it still make a difference in regards to your faith?
