Did Nazareth exist during the life of Jesus? How can we know? What does the evidence say? These are questions to which Christians have been asked to give an answer on a more and more frequent basis...

Yes, it did. Not only do we have a strong, consistent tradition in the 4 gospels that Jesus came from Nazareth, with Luke even providing accurate geographical details (it was set on a hillside, Luke 4:29), but archaeologists have discovered homes, pottery, and coins at the site that doubtless date to the first part of the first century. I flew over and saw it in the Holy Land on a trip for pastors, teachers, and evangelists.
