Bible Scenes Uncovered in Ruins of Ancient Synagogue

On a hill above the Sea of Galilee in northern Israel, archaeologists have discovered one amazing floor mosaic after another.

Archaeologists excavating a Roman-era synagogue at the site of Huqoq, Israel, have uncovered two new panels of a mosaic floor with instantly identifiable subjects—Noah’s ark, and the parting of the Red Sea during the Israelite exodus from Egypt.

“You can see the pharaoh’s soldiers with their chariots and horses drowning, and even being eaten by large fish,” says excavation director Jodi Magness, from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill.
