Gospel Verse Found Carved On Ancient Shrine

JERUSALEM, Nov. 20 — A barely legible clue — the name “Simon” carved in Greek letters — beckoned from high up on the weather-beaten facade of an ancient burial monument. Their curiosity piqued, two Jerusalem scholars uncovered six previously invisible lines of inscription: a Gospel verse — Luke 2:25

The reouble with those sites are that they were often chosen based on rumour and people's desire for a physical connection to Biblical events. It's likely that the spot only gained its significance in the 4th century with the spread and rise of Christianity as an official religion. Still interesting though.
