The website, which is still under construction, is being organized by Israeli Christian and former IDF Captain Bishara Shlayan, a merchant seaman from Nazareth who has become outspoken new leader of the Israeli Christian community seeking to build Jewish-Christian ties. Shlayan is also leading efforts to form a new Israeli-Arab Christian political party called B’nei Habrit and to build a 100-foot statue of Jesus in Nazareth.

“The site will symbolize the attraction of the global Christian community to the city of Nazareth and the support of the world community to the Christian communities in Israel,” the website says.

    I think that the statue if wrong. You should not bow down in front of one. But otherwise sounds good.

    Nazareth was not a humane abode till the 3rd century, archaeology supports this thesis. It was listed in no census or accounts from the 1st century at all, jewish or roman. Jesus might have been from somewhere else, if he existed at all.
