Interesting Artifact Found

This article in the Israeli newspaper HAARETZ ("The Land") announces the discovery of a sarcophagus cover with the inscription "Son of the High Priest." Experts from the Israel Antiquities Authority believe the artifact dates from 30–70 A.D., the formative years for early Christianity.

I like your variety of postings. I am intrigued by this archaeological find but I am grateful to God that my faith is based upon His Word and not physical evidence. Have you ever wondered what types of amazing things lie hidden in the ground and may never be found? But a sovereign God would dictate what "evidences" are found and which are not. I have long pondered Noah's Ark and have come to the conclusion that if it still exists, then God is keeping it hidden until He chooses (if He chooses) to reveal it to the world.
