Armageddon Church- The ancient Church of Megiddo prison

Our mission is to promote Holyland's most ancient Church, recently discovered in Armageddon (in Hebrew language- Megiddo) prison. Armageddon is intended to address the general public, offering a wide range of articles, interviews and updates. We hope you will enjoy the history, the symbolism, the meaning, and lighter sides of this amazing discovery.

We will not focus on the Archaeological aspect (for the Archaeological aspect please visit the Israel Antiquitoes Authority-IAA).
We believe that the ancient Church belongs to no one and to everyone. So, if you have an idea, a thought or an article you wish to share, we will be happy to publish it on our site.

For emails, questions, remarks, ideas, requests-

What is your professional view on the significance of the findings in Megiddo prison?

The secret of what this room really is, lies in the structure around the mosaic, and in the strata below it. The nature of the structure will tell us whether it is a public or a private praying chamber in a private house. The structures surrounding the room will help determine its true nature... Read more

Translation of the Megiddo Jail mosaic- an article by Bouke Slofstra.

If the Megiddo ruin discovered recently would appear to date to the third century AD, it would be a marvellous find.
