Most visitors to Nazareth will visit the beautiful Church of the Annunciation with its wonderful murals of the Virgin and Child. Nearby, is the Sisters of Nazareth Convent that is frequently visited by Catholic Pilgrim Group. In the “lower level” of the Sisters of Nazareth are the remains of archaeological excavations including an area that Ken Dark argues was the house of the family of Jesus in Nazareth!
“. . . the rock–cut doorway of the first–century house . . . . The combination of rock–built construction and quarried–rock construction can be seen clearly. The door opens to the ‘Chambre Obscure,’ another part of the original house structure partly cut out of the natural rock. The rock overhang in the corner is naturally occurring and was likely left in its current form to support the roof. In front of the doorway, a fragment of the original floor survives.” (Dark, p. 56)
The east side [on right side of image] of the structure originally had rock built walls, as this part of the house was built away from the naturally occurring rock cave. The visible wall was rebuilt in the Crusader period but may incorporate remains of the first–century A.D. wall. (Dark, p. 56)
