A building in Capernaum, Galilee, has been described as the remains of the ancient synagogue that Jesus Christ began his teaching.

Early travellers to the site believe the building is the house of Peter which the Bible suggests was the home of Jesus in Capernaum.

For much of his adult life, Jesus lived in the small fishing village of Capernaum on the Sea of Galilee, Biblical Archaeology Society reports.

Legit.ng gathers that the house consisted of a few small rooms clustered around two open courtyards.

Report has it that following Jesus' death, the function of the house changed. The main room of the house was said to have been completely plastered over from floor to ceiling.

In other news, Christians celebrated the return of a little wooden relic that was believed to be part of Jesus' manger, 1400 years after it was gifted to the pope in Rome.

The small-sized cradle was shown to worshipers on Friday, November 29, at the Notre Dame church in Jerusalem during a-day celebration and prayer.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that one of the world's earliest known mosques, built around 1,200 years ago, was discovered by archaeologists in Israel's Negev Desert.

The remains, dating from the 7th or 8th century, were found in the Bedouin town of Rahat.

Israel's Antiquities Authority (IAA) said the mosque was unearthed during building work in the area.

According to IAA, it is the first known mosque from this period in the area, rivalling the age of those found in Mecca and Jerusalem.

The excavation directors, Jon Seligman and Shahar Zur, said the mosque would be"a rare discovery anywhere in the world."

Researchers believe the mosque's congregation were likely to have been local farmers.

The building was open-air, rectangular-shaped and had a "Mihrab" - or a prayer niche - facing south toward Mecca, Islam's holiest city.
