Mosaic Museum Opens in Israel

On 09, Jun 2009 | No Comments | In Ancient | By man-admin

Mosaics found in Judea, Samaria, and the Gaza Strip have been collected for display at the Museum of the Good Samaritan. According to Israel Antiquities Authority, “The site, located on the main road between Jerusalem and Jericho, is identified with the biblical Ma’ale Adumim, which was located at the junction between the lands of the tribes of Benjamin and of Judah (Josh. 15:7; 18:17). In the Byzantine period it was identified with the inn mentioned in the Parable of the Good Samaritan (Luke 10:25–37). This parable includes men of three different faiths: Jesus, the founder of Christianity, Jews, and a Samaritan who performs a merciful deed. Accordingly, the museum exhibits mosaics and artifacts from both Jewish and Samaritan synagogues, as well as from churches.”

An exciting new opportunity for mosaic lovers to explore.
