I came across this very intriguing recent archaeological discovery (Dec 17, 2015)

"Archaeologists Find Hebrew Letters Engraved on Tablet at Jesus Miracle Site. These Are the Two Words They’ve Identified So Far."

Israeli researchers announced Thursday the discovery of an extraordinary 1,500-year-old marble tablet at the Sea of Galilee engraved with religiously significant Aramaic words written in Hebrew letters, which suggests the place was once a Jewish or Jewish-Christian settlement."

Because the water level of the Sea of Galilee has descended, researchers were able to examine previously submerged areas belonging to what they suggest was the 5th century A.D. Byzantine period Christian settlement. There they found what appeared to be an ancient harbor and the marble slab.
