Washington: Israeli archeologists have recently discovered an ancient synagogue, where they believe Jesus Christ taught and preached.

The discovery was made in the ancient town of Magdala, thought to be the hometown of Mary Magdalene, on the western shore of the Sea of Galilee, ABC News reported.

The Legionaries of Christ, a Catholic organization, bought land in the area, planning to build a hotel. An ancient temple was uncovered among the ruins in 2009.

With relics seeming to support that theory, archaeologists are now convinced that Jesus taught here. Among the historic treasures are a main hall with an elaborate mosaic floor; a limestone block carved with a menorah, the oldest ever found on stone; and Jewish ritual baths.
