Actually, no it doesn't, Tom. There is good evidence for a town there, but
what was it called? (When did the city known as New York get its name in
relation to the foundation of the place?)
Despite herb's statement regarding the lack of epigraphic records for a lot
of towns, there is no solid evidence for a town called Nazareth at that
time. We should be used to things being adapted to fulfill what is written.
