Bible Scenes Uncovered in Ruins of Ancient Synagogue

Mosaics depicting prominent Bible scenes were uncovered during annual excavations of an ancient synagogue in Israel’s Lower Galilee.

Such images are extremely rare for the time period, according to excavation director Jodi Magness, of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, whose work was funded by the National Geographic Society.

“I know of only two other scenes of the parting of the Red Sea in ancient synagogues,” Magness told National Geographic.

The ark scenes are also uncommon; Magness said she knows of only two other mosaics showing such depictions.


Dr. Tabor Shares Three Points.

1. The Bible and History go hand and hand.

2. Even in ancient times, artist depicted these great stories from the Bible.

3. The world is discovering more and more ancient artifacts that prove the stories from the Bible are in fact, accurate.

Remember if you have burdens weighing you down, Jesus wants you to cast your burdens upon Him. Let Him carry your burdens. He has a plan for your life today!
