Biblical archaeologists discover mysterious temple in ancient bible city of Mozah outside of Jerusalem and it’s revealing end times secrets.
Am I getting tired of telling you how amazing it is with all these end times discoveries being made by biblical archaeologists? Nope, not even close. I love it and my heart rejoices with each new revelation that is made, and as you well know there has been a whole lot of them over the past few years. Welcome to the biblical city a Mozah, part of the inheritance of Benjamin, and a place where an ancient and previously unknown temple once stood.
“Now the cities of the tribe of the children of Benjamin according to their families were Jericho, and Bethhoglah, and the valley of Keziz, And Betharabah, and Zemaraim, and Bethel, And Avim, and Parah, and Ophrah, And Chepharhaammonai, and Ophni, and Gaba; twelve cities with their villages: Gibeon, and Ramah, and Beeroth, And Mizpeh, and Chephirah, and Mozah, And Rekem, and Irpeel, and Taralah, And Zelah, Eleph, and Jebusi, which is Jerusalem, Gibeath, and Kirjath; fourteen cities with their villages. This is the inheritance of the children of Benjamin according to their families.” Joshua 18:21-28 (KJB)
The ancient city of Tel Moza, or Mozah as recorded in your King James Bible, was discovered by biblical archaeologists back in 2012 near Jerusalem in Israel, and it was part of the kingdom of Judah. Last year the excavations began, and what they are bringing to light is nothing short of riveting if you love the Bible. Could the temple at Mozah been part of ancient ritualistic worship that was rooted out when the First Jewish Temple of the Living God was built? Or, was the Mozah temple sanctioned to work in harmony with the main Jewish Temple of Solomon? That’s the question biblical archaeologists are working hard to answer right now. One thing’s for sure, the past is giving up its secrets at an astonishing rate.
Identified as the Biblical city of Mozah in the kingdom of Judah, biblical archaeologists from Tel Aviv University and the Israel Antiquities Authority excavated the site last year.
FROM FOX NEWS: An Iron Age temple complex discovered near Jerusalem is shedding new light on an ancient Biblical city. The temple complex, which dates to the late 10th and early ninth centuries B.C., was discovered in 2012 at Tel Moza near Jerusalem. Identified as the Biblical city of Mozah in the kingdom of Judah, biblical archaeologists from Tel Aviv University and the Israel Antiquities Authority excavated the site last year. They fully unearthed two buildings: the temple and a structure beneath it.
The area beneath the temple’s earliest floor included human and horse-shaped figurines in the shape of animals and people as well as a stand decorated with lions and sphinxes that would have been used by an ancient cult. A stone altar, a stone offering table and a pit filled with ash and animal bones were also discovered at the site.
Experts are fascinated by the discoveries, which prove that there were other sanctioned temples besides Solomon’s famous temple in Jerusalem. Solomon’s Temple was destroyed during the Babylonian conquest of Jerusalem in 587 and 586 B.C.
“Could a monumental temple really exist in the heart of Judah, outside Jerusalem? Did Jerusalem know about it?” Tel Aviv University doctoral student Shua Kisilevitz wrote in a statement. “If so, could this other temple possibly have been part of the Judahite administrative system? The Bible details the religious reforms of King Hezekiah and King Josiah, who consolidated worship practices to Solomon’s Temple in Jerusalem, and eliminated cultic activity beyond its boundaries.”
“Despite the biblical narratives describing Hezekiah’s and Josiah’s reforms, there were sanctioned temples in Judah in addition to the official temple in Jerusalem,” added Tel Aviv University Professor Oded Lipschits to the statement. “Our discoveries thus far have fundamentally changed the way we understand the religious practices of Judahites.”
Fun Facts About The Biblical City Of Mozah!
- FUN FACTS: Moza, or Mozah, is first mentioned in the Bible as one of the cities of the tribe of Benjamin (Jos. 18:26). The identification of the site is important for establishing the location of the border between the territories of Judah and Benjamin in this area. One of the sons of Caleb is called Moza (1 Chr. 2:46); the name also appears in the genealogy of Zimri, one of the heads of the tribe of Benjamin (1 Chr. 8:36–37; 9:42). The meaning of the name is “water source.” Based on the similarity with the name of the Arab village Khirbet Mizza, the biblical settlement has been identified by a number of scholars with Moza; others have equated it with Khirbet Beit Mizza, located at Mevasseret Zion, a short distance to the north. The results of the latest excavations at the site, however, conclusively confirm the identification of the biblical site with Moza. SOURCE
Experts believe that Mozah was initially a granary, and, as it developed, a temple was built. Excavation of the site will continue this spring. Last year biblical archaeologists uncovered ancient arrowheads from the bloody Babylonian conquest of Jerusalem in the sixth century B.C. READ MORE
