Stunning biblical 'spies' mosaic discovered in Israel

 

http://www.foxnews.com/science/2018/07/12/stunning-biblical-spies-mosaic-discovered-in-israel.amp.html

 

Researchers have uncovered a stunning mosaic depicting a biblical scene at the site of an ancient synagogue in Northern Israel.

 

The mosaic, which is the latest to be discovered at the fifth-century synagogue in Huqoq, depicts a scene from Numbers 13:23. Labeled "a pole between two," the panel shows two spies sent by Moses to explore the biblical land of Canaan. The spies are shown carrying a pole with a cluster of grapes, which they took to Moses as evidence of Canaan’s abundance.

 

Another recently discovered panel, which references Isaiah 11:6, includes the inscription "a small child shall lead them," and depicts a youth leading an animal on a rope.

Why are they not sporting beards?

Good question! Art style perhaps of the people who made it. Like how the churches made Jesus pale white, skinny with long hair. Though this wa the account of the spies, and that was pre-mosaic law I believe.. they just left Egypt. So it would make sense to have many people shaven at that time.

These places of worship may have been apostate too, like the Jews who developed the myth of not using Jehovah's name. Look at this.

They were including star signs and astrology in their art...

No doubt. In many of the synagogues found, there are traces of Babylonian influence. The zodiac is a common theme.
