Ancient Church ruins discovered in Israel

In a BBC report Israeli officials say they have discovered what may be the oldest Christian Church in Israel- on the site of a maximum security prison. Israel's Antiquities Authority said the church at the Megiddo jail dated back to the third or fourth century AD and was "a once in a lifetime find". It contained a mosaic bearing the name of Jesus Christ in ancient Greek, fish murals and an altar, officials said.
The dig took place near the biblical site of Armageddon in northern Israel.

My comment is that anyone building a church in Armageddon was probably not expecting the great battle to take place any time in the near future!
