When visiting Nazareth, adjacent to the famous Basilica of Annunciation, you will find an interesting Church.
The Franciscan Church of St Joesph is named after Saint Joseph, Father of Jesus since it stands on the same spot where his carpentry had once stood.
The modern-day Church was established in 1914 over the remnants of the more ancient Churches that was located in this area.
In the Crypts, which are located under the Church, you will find an ancient water pit, Caves, Barns, and even beautiful Mosaics from the ancient Village of Nazareth long before Jesus.
One of those caves inside the crypts had served as the famous Carpenter’s workshop.
The Church also reflects the ancient Jewish roots of Christianity as in the past, Christian Prayers has accepted the Jewish Bathe Commandment.
As a result, they had built a ritual bath inside the Church to fulfill the Commandments.
