The historian asks the archaeologist: “Is there really no evidence of the city of Nazareth from the 1st century CE?"
The priest pipes up: “Of course there was a 1st century CE Nazareth because Jesus lived in Nazareth.”
The rabbi cuts off the archaeologist with: “Jesus was a Jew which proves that Nazareth was a Jewish city and the Galilee was Jewish territory during the first century CE.”
The archaeologist tells the historian: “I can give you a first century CE Nazareth, if these guys will fund my dig.”

"From the early days of the conceptualization, planning and development of Nazareth Village, there was a strong commitment to create a first-century village based on solid biblical, historical, and archeological research."
