Mosaic containing Bible verses found in southern Turkey
A 120 square meter mosaic inscribed with quotes from the Bible has been discovered in Turkey’s southern province of Adana.
The mosaic depicts 16 wild and domesticated animals – including a wolf, sheep, leopard, goat, bull, lion, bear and snake. The depiction is accompanied by a Bible verse written in Greek - “The wolf and the lamb shall feed together, and the lion shall eat straw like the bullock: and dust shall be the serpent's meat. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain, saith the Lord,” BGN News reports.
Adana's Culture and Tourism Director Sabri Tari explained that there are excavations going on at 15 separate sites in Adana and its environs attempting to uncover mosaics for display at the new facility.
