1,500-year-old ‘Christ, born of Mary’ inscription discovered in Israel

Archaeologists have unearthed a 1,500-year-old inscribed Christian blessing that begins, “Christ, born of Mary,” the Israel Antiquities Authority (IAA) reported Wednesday (Jan. 20). 

The stone inscription, written in Greek, was once part of a lintel (the structure that spans the top of door frames) that decorated the entrance of a church, located in what is now et-Taiyiba (also called Taiba), a village in Israel’s northern Jezreel Valley.
