St. Philip

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 that we excavated a month ago.” The structure of the tomb and the writings on the wall proved it belonged to St. Philip, he added.

  1. AWSOMe…just try to find aliens next time…i want to buy a laser gun from them šŸ˜€

    1. just buy at dollar store near Washington

    2. Just a thought, aliens are illusions of Satan to draw mans attention away from God.

      1. By definition God Himself and His created angelic beings are alien.

        1. But then, God occupies the universe and is not restricted by time, space of matter so, once again, we ar the aliens in His domain šŸ™‚

          1. Great reply.

          2. True , most think we are the reality, but we’re not, were the made up and he’s the reality, the world gets it backwards

      2. Mark Jennette. I believe aliens are demons as well. I like how you put that as aliens are illusions of satan to draw away mans attention from God. Iā€™m wondering how you thought of that or who told you that. I saw aliens, and then I saw a blurry face of Jesus that was close enough to know it was Him. Thanks man!

        1. Let’s start saying beings. Some are evil and more are good. The orbs are spiritual beings”angels”. They are of the light. The demon beings are dark. Shadow people.

  2. Amazing!! even more proof that the bible is just not a story, it is the words of the living God!

    1. Yeah , on His level R yah. Undoubtedly man put it on record. Directly under His influence
      The inspired word of God, Holy !!! With one main purpose truly bloodline of the Christ & whosoever would believe on Him will have Hope

    2. It’s is God,it’s the only book on the planet that’s alive , in the beginning was the word and the word with God and the word was God, supernatural book, tells us things that will be before they even happen, no other book can do that

  3. this is great. and goes on to prove that the bible isn’t a book about some persons who never existed but it is REAL. PRAISE GOD!


  5. 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

    1. I like your comment but when you refer to God of heaven, the gentile God, please capitalize His name. He is due all the respect we can give our God. Thank you.

    2. Well said, I was seeking God 30 years ago, on my knees by my bed ask God into my heart, but looked up to him and said how do I know you did it, a year later he showed me, except a man is born of the water and the spirit he can not enter into the kingdom of God, that night I was baptized in Jesus name, and by the next Saturday I was filled with the holy ghost, acts 2:38, it happened to me and it’s been happening every sense, God within us

  6. 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.

  7. Amazing:the word of God is real.

  8. Praise God for His son Jesus The Christ and for all the information he gives to us to have faith and hope in Him.

    1. Amen!

  9. 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!

  10. For all whom are still sitting on the fence, regarding “The Greatest Story Ever Told” And for all of You my beloved friends, to reassure you of what’s to come, and to tell all those of which you love.
    Loving Christ Until I See Him For Myself,

    1. We’ve found way more then that, Noah’s ark, the place where Moses was on the mountain and they were worshipping the calf, the Arabs have a fence around it so no one can go to the mountain may other things, Herods Castle, alot more, and time is short, he’s coming soon, that trumpet will sound and the world want know what’s going on

  11. Sohappy. More must know of this.wen I began being a christian I doubted it was real, but nowi wanna get up a sing praises to go, im sohappy. It provs the lord is living, and chanching the world this very momet. It inspires me. I want to learn love and live the life of a follower. Im off to read the bible. Omgeee so happy

    1. Good to hear from you Kristen. I am happy for your happiness.

  12. Jesus Christ is our Savior. Jesus is life and whoever comes must believe that he is Christ. Repent and turn from your sins.

    1. That’s not all Peter said, repent and be baptized in Jesus name for the remission of your sin and you shall receive the gift of the holy ghost Acts 2:38, for this promise is into you and unto them that are far off even as many as the lord our God shall call, I got it this way, like every example in the bible it’s your promise, go get it in Jesus name

  13. Its good to know that Phillip continued Jesus mission, to spread the word of God. I’m glad to know that his resting place has been found. However, those of us that believe in Christ need no further proof of his existence or his return. The fact is the naysayers will discount any proof or facts. You can lead a horse to water but you can’t make him drink, I can only offer my prayers up to our Lord that he will be able to change their hearts. God Bless this world, and may Jesus Christ return find more believers than nonbelievers. Glory be to Christ.

  14. Urantia Book (1955)….paper 139:6.4….

    Philip….winning souls wherever he went, was finally crucified for his faith and buried in Hierapolis.

  15. Your real dumb for saying something like that. This many was holy unto God. Revered him all the way to the point of even death. Have you ever revered anything other than yourself? Probably not!! Have you ever taken the time to even seek the God of the Bible? Or is it just to much sacrifice to possibly know the God that literally game his life for you . Man I don’t know who you are..But God is real..Don’t mock things that are holy.. I tell you this because I care..I know you don’t know him..And that’s sad..But it doesn’t make him fake .U just have no been broken to a place where you were so desperately in need of God…But trust this..That void your trying to fill…Only God can fill it..u will see if you have any sense at all..I believe you do…

  16. The rich man said;Father Abraham send Lazarus back from the dead for I have five brothers that he can warn them so this does not happen to them !He replied if they do not listen to Moses and the Commandments or the Prophets they will not believe some one who has come back from the dead!
    This can apply to Jesus’s Resurrection for how many still do believe He is the Resurrection and the Life?

  17. Glory to God- We worship and praise the ALMIGHTY GOD! King of kings will return soon! Thank you Jesus for taking away my sins!
