Whether or not you accept/believe that this was one of the first Christian churches, it is an interesting bit of archaeology and architecture. Read a little of the reported history before going to help you understand what you're seeing. Most interesting to me was standing at the entrance door and looking back at the city seeing the minarets sticking up. It seems like Christianity and Islam have co-existed here for centuries and the locals don't seem to mind.
