It’s a low-key rivalry, in fact, kept within bounds of respect for the spiritual significance of the sites. But it is understandably moving for many pilgrims to be told “this is the spot” where something from the Bible happened. There’s no reason not to offer them the best and latest archeological information available, even if it upsets old myths or traditions. It doesn’t change the faith, only the understanding of the scriptures that underlies it.

Good grief, Jesus came for all people and we’re going to argue which side of the river He stood on?
