BREAKING NEWS Of Of ISRAEL… Look What They Found! Muslims PISSED OFF!

Sassy Liberty AMERICA’S FREEDOM FIGHTERS –

As radicals, atheists, and liberals continue to attack and disparage Christianity attempting to dismiss it as little more than a fairy tale, archaeologists in Israel are proving them wrong with yet another stunning historical discovery. A 1,500-year-old Christian mosaic has been discovered that was once the floor of a church or monastery.

Experts discovered the mosaic during an excavation of the ancient Mediterranean coastal city of Ashdod-Yam.  This is now a part of the modern day city of Ashdod. The discovery was made in August 2017 and was just announced this week by the Israel Antiquities Authority. Experts from the Israel Antiquities Authority, Tel Aviv University, and the University of Gottingen and Leipzig University in Germany worked in partnership on this project. They are working together to raise funds in the hopes of continuing the excavation.

An inscription written in Greek dedicated to the structure’s builders mentions a date on the ancient Georgian calendar allowing experts to definitively date the building.

Dr. Leah Di Segni of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem translated the inscription and states of the incredible discovery –

“[By the grace of God (or Christ)], this work was done from the foundation under Procopius, our most saintly and most holy bishop, in the month Dios of the 3rd indiction, year 292″ it reads. The year 292 corresponds to 539 A.D. “This is the earliest appearance of the use of the Georgian calendar in the Land of Israel, many years before it was used in Georgia itself.”

The city of Ashdod-Yam was known as a very important city during what history calls the Byzantine period. According to historical sources, the fifth-century Georgian Prince and Bishop Peter the Iberian lived in Ashdod-Yam.

“As far as we know, Ashdod is now home to the largest community of Jews of Georgian origin in the world. Testimony to the presence of the actual Georgians in the Land of Israel as far back as the Byzantine period has been found dozens of kilometers from Ashdod – in Jerusalem and its surroundings. But this is the first time that a Georgian church or monastery has been discovered on the Israeli coast.”

The discovery of the Ashdod-Yam mosaic floor is just the latest find in Christian archaeological find in Israel.  Recently another ancient Greek inscription was found on a 1,500-year-old mosaic floor near the Damascus Gate in the Old City of Jerusalem. This inscription mentions 6th century A.D. Byzantine emperor Justinian commemorating the building’s founding by a priest named Constantine. Experts also believe they have found the lost Roman city of Julias, formerly the village of Bethsaida – the home of Jesus’ apostles Peter, Andrew, and Philip.
