Every year around Christmas lots of news messages are brought into attention where they claim to have found something about the Nazarene Jew Jeshua and his family.

Already in March the childhood home of Jesus may have been found underneath the Sisters of Nazareth Convent in Nazareth, Israel, according to archaeologist Ken Dark.

This is partially based on the result of his survey of the Nahal Zippori region that separates Sepphoris and Nazareth geographically.
