A Jewish-Christian putting their faith on display by carving an anchor-cross into the menorah etched into this marble column. The column was found in the ancient city of Laodicia. The menorah reflects a traditional Jewish depiction with the candelabra flanked by a shofar (upper right) and a lulav (palm frond) (lower right).
The owner of the marble marble column - to a shop? or house? - put their faith on display for the world to see. How much more should we do the same today.
What makes this particular Menorah-Cross so special is that the flames of the candelabra are still burning bright!
Scott Broberg - I have (2) credit hours remaining before I complete my Masters of Divinity (MDiv) from Bethel Seminary - San Diego. My focus is Biblical Studies with an emphasis on the Old Testament. My plan was to finish my studies by attending a course in Jerusalem in July 2020 - COVID-19 changed those plans.
