Early Christian Chapel Now a Prison

The place where St John the Divine, in Revelation 16:16,prophesied the "war to end all wars" is now thehigh-security prison of Megiddo, where the Israelis send thehardest Palestinian cases. Could this fortress be the siteof an incredible war in the future?

Eric Silver writes in the Independent that underneath theconcrete fortress, Israeli archeologists have discovered oneof the earliest known Christian chapels. It has a beautifulmosaic tile floor inscribed with a Greek dedication to "theGod Jesus Christ," and discovered when a new wing was beingbuilt on the prison. The chapel is believed to date to thelate third or early fourth centuries, when the Romanconquerors still outlawed Christian worship.

Muslim prisoners cleared the floor of the chapel, revealingan image of a pair of fish.
