This article tells us about new archeological evidence from late 2nd century that proves Christians worshipped Jesus as God. A prayer found in mosaics in a Christian worship hall in Israel names a benefactor called Gaianus who is described as a centurion. Another mentions a woman called Akeptous who ‘…offered this table in memorial of the God Jesus Christ’…”
Because the inscription is part of a mosaic benefactor’s inscription it reveals a belief that is well established and beyond controversy. As in all these matters, when we find evidence from a particular date, and the evidence shows a belief or custom that is taken for granted, it is possible therefore to assume, that the practices actually dates to a much earlier time period.
Of course we have non Scriptural documentary evidence from even earlier than this that tells us that Christians believed Jesus was God. It’s still nice to have archeological evidence to support the truth.
