Picture: See the 1st Century House in Nazareth Where Jesus Christ May Have Grown Up in

According to LiveScience, the house pictured (above) is believed to be the house Jesus Christ grew up in. The Archaeologists working in Nazareth, the hometown of Jesus Christ have identified a house dating to the first century that was regarded as the place where Jesus was brought up by Mary and Joseph.

Jesus is believed to have grown up in Nazareth. Archaeologists found that, centuries after Jesus' time, the Byzantine Empire (which controlled Nazareth up until the seventh century) decorated the house with mosaics and constructed a church known as the "Church of the Nutrition" over the house, protecting it.

Crusaders who ventured into the Holy Land in the 12th century fixed up the church after it fell into disrepair. This evidence suggests that both the Byzantines and Crusaders believed that this was the home where Jesus was brought up, Dark said.
