Hikers Make STUNNING Discovery About Christianity and Judaism

By

A group of hikers exploring a cave in south-central Israel made a stunning discovery.

There are so many rich secrets hidden in and under the Land of Israel. We may never find it all!

The hikers are member of the Israel Caving Club. During the Hanukkah holiday, they decided to explore a cave they had never entered before.

“We heard there are interesting caves in the region,” one of the hikers, Ido Meroz, told Fox News about the Judean lowlands. “We began to peer into them, and that’s how we came to this cave, which is extremely impressive with rock-carved niches and engravings on the wall.”

Two of those engravings in particular caught the hikers’ eyes, and later excited archaeologists.

The first is a well-preserved engraving of the Menorah that was situated in the Temple in Jerusalem.

Meroz recounted the find:

“Just before we were about to return we suddenly noticed an engraving that at first glance seemed to be a menorah. When we realized this is an ancient depiction of a menorah, we became very excited. Its appearance was quite distinct.”

Nearby, they also found a very distinct engraving of a cross.

Senior archaeologists said the cross was probably engraved some 200 years after the Menorah, which was likely carved in the early first century AD.

The appearance of the cross next to the Menorah was further evidence that the original Church was Jewish, and based in the Land of Israel.

This is no small thing, and not something that can any longer be taken for granted.

Liberal movements that have aligned with the pro-Palestinian agenda seek to erase the Jewish connection to the Holy Land, to Christianity and to Jesus.

“[T]his exciting discovery, which was symbolically revealed during the Hanukkah holiday, substantiates the scientific research regarding the Jewish nature of the settlement during the Second Temple period,” said Sa’ar Ganor of the Israel Antiquities Authority.
