Tomb of Apostle Phillip Found in Hierapolis


St. Philip

From FoxNews July 27, 2011 A tomb believed to be that of St. Philip the Apostle was unearthed during excavations in the ancient Turkish city of Hierapolis. Italian professor Francesco D’Andria said archeologists found the tomb of the biblical figure — one of the 12 original disciples of Jesus — while working on the ruins of a newly-unearthed church, Turkish news agency Anadolu reported Wednesday. “We have been looking for Saint Philip’s tomb for years,” d’Andria told the agency. “We finally found it in the ruins of a church which we excavated a month ago.” The structure of the tomb and the writings on the wall proved it belonged to St. Philip, he added.

    Glory to our god and father and our lord Jesus his son whom was sent down to dwell among us. This is UN NEEDED proof that Jesus is the truth the life and the way! i proclaim that he was risen from the dead and any one who believes in him will also be risen on that great day. so repent of your sin, turn to god and have faith in Jesus the son of god who is the Christ, and let god love on you a bit.. for he has longed to manifest this to you from the beginning. the son of man who was with him from the beginning

    Praise the LORD…I with Jarrod, this is definitely Not needed to “prove” that our God is real, our breathing is proof enough! But this is great to see nonetheless.

    It’s nice that the Lord gives the world a glimpse of the biblical past in unearthing Philip’s tomb however it’s key that we place our faith in Philip’s master the Lord Jesus Christ!Honor and glory to the King of Kings!
