To be sure, It's always interesting when archeological digs surrender their secrets hidden for centuries. However, it needs to be noted that by the third quadrant of the third century, Christianity (as established by Jesus) had been watered down by Roman religious men that coerced Constantine to mix pagan spiritualistic teachings with Biblical ones.

Fascinating. Even back then there was intrigue and curses. We still are getting into trouble these days as well with various societal ills.
