Church of the Ark found at Shiloh on West Bank. It was one of the first churches and even housed the Ark.

Archaeologists claimed yesterday to have uncovered one of the world's first churches, built on a site believed to have once housed the Ark of the Covenant.

The site, emerging from the soil in a few acres in the hills of the Israeli occupied West Bank, is richly decorated with brightly coloured mosaics and inscriptions referring to Jesus Christ.

According to the Old Testament, the Ark of the Covenant, which contained the two tablets inscribed with the Ten Commandments, was kept by the Israelites at Shiloh for several hundred years.

(Could the Ark have been brought back here after the Temple of Solomon was razed? Is this the first christian church? Hope we get more pictures soon.)
