Today we will take you to a special and secret room, called the little church of god, not many can go down there.
It’s Not far from the Last super room that was built by the crusades, located in mount Zion.
When the persecution started against the disciples, this place became the hiding place for them since the last supper room became unsafe. It was used as a basement or a store house at that time.
In 70 A.D when the city was demolished by the Romans, this place was abandoned for few years until the Christians came back and reused The little church of god.
Hegesippus was the first to mention the place, and the church was continuously used by the Jesus followers.
Additionally, in 132 AD,Epiphanius of Salamis one, one of the most important historians – mentioned the place and gave details about the Apse facing Golgotha, the water cisterns, the stairs leading down and the Pottery Graffiti on the wall that has the Menorah and the fish on it. He also talked about the Christians who used to risk their lives coming from Golgotha to the little church of God to worship , by crossing the 10 legend Roman camp that used to be near Jaffa gate.
Christians have always been persecuted for the name of our lord Jesus Christ, and he was preparing us for this by his teachings In Mathew 5:10-12.
