Ancient Jewish Synagogue Carving Mentions Jesus
I’m not endorsing the above video, which purports to show an ancient Jewish synagogue with inscriptions on the floor that reads:
“Remembered for good, the Comforter, Y’shua, martyr/witness.”
Nevertheless, the information in the video certainly is fascinating. As you know, secularists claim there’s no historical or archaeological evidence whatsoever that Y’shua — Jesus — ever lived.
Yet here we apparently have an unearthed Messianic synagogue from circa 300-350 A.D., with the above-mentioned inscription, plus carved pictures of two Menorahs and two Olive Trees — a likely reference to Revelation 11:4, “These are the two olive trees and the two lamp stands, standing before the Lord of the earth.”
If it’s true, and has not been faked as a means of drawing Christian tourists, this is one of the most interesting and important archaeological finds in recent memory.
Here’s a photo of the mosaic carving itself, from the synagogue floor, with Jesus’ name in Aramaic highlighted very lightly in yellow:
