Near the sea of Galilee (Israel) has discovered a mosaic –1,500 years old– of fish, birds and baskets of fruit, flowers and loaves of bread; it is suspected that it could be a "testament" of the place where, as stated by the New Testament, Jesus performed the multiplication of the loaves and fishes. So picked up "The Times of Israel", following the statements by the archaeologist in charge of the investigations, Michael Eisenberg , of the University of Haifa.
The mosaic is located in the north of Israel, in the heart of the holy Land, in a city that has been baptized as "Burnt Church" (church burnt), discovered in 2005; it forms part of the archaeological site of Hippos, located on a hill with views of the sea of Galilee. The church was destroyed in the year 700 d. C., but the soil with the mosaic itself has managed to survive the passage of the centuries thanks to a layer of ash.
The "tiles" discovered they could capture one of the miracles referred to in the New Testament in which Christ used only five loaves of bread and two fish to feed 5,000 people. Your archaeologist responsible confirmed that there were different explanations to the graphic descriptions, but that it could not ignore the similitd with the description of the New Testament, as for example the same number of loaves and fish.
This "discovery" conflicts with the existence of the Church of the Multiplication of the Loaves and Fishes , in Tabgha, on the northwestern shore of the Sea of Galilee. It is to this place which officially has atríbuido such a miracle. Unlike the new mosaic, the church of Tabgha account with another, but two fish and a basket with only 4 loaves of bread.
