Nope. It’s just another one of the many exaggerated claims that fly around. Indeed, the story doesn’t match the headline. Here’s the headline:
The Lost Home of Jesus’ Apostles Has Just Been Found, Archaeologists Say
Here’s the opening of the story:
Archaeologists think they may have found the lost Roman city of Julias, the home of three apostles of Jesus: Peter, Andrew and Philip (John 1:44; 12:21). A multi-layered site discovered on the northern shore of the Sea of Galilee, in the Bethsaida Valley Nature Reserve, is the spot, the team believes. The key discovery is of an advanced Roman-style bathhouse. That in and of itself indicates that there had been a city there, not just a fishing village, Dr. Mordechai Aviam of Kinneret College told Haaretz.
Speculation in the guise of reporting.
