      On 22 June Xinhua news reported the find of a possible first or second century
      church at Jerash (Gerasa), north of Amman (not south, as they reported). No
      one doubts Jerash had churches, but the date was striking. It cited the Jordan
      Times of Tuesday. The Xinhua report is available by search of "Jerash Turin
      church" at
      http://news.google.com

      At
      http://www.jordantimes.com Tuesday the source of the confusion is an old
      report; the dating evidently was not sustained. See the "Features: The Jordan
      Times 25 Years Ago" section.
