Ancient coin tied to Jewish rebellion against Romans found in Jerusalem

Published

A rare coin dating back to a Jewish revolt against the Romans nearly 2,000 years ago was uncovered during excavations in Jerusalem’s Old City.

The Israel Antiquities Authority announced the discovery on Monday in honor of the Jewish holiday Lag B’Omer. Experts say the bronze coin dates to the Bar Kokhba Revolt from 132-135 AD—the last of three major Jewish revolts against the Roman Empire.

On one side of the coin, there is an image of a cluster of grapes and the inscription “Year Two of the Freedom of Jerusalem” in ancient Jerusalem. The other side of the coin features a palm tree and the inscription “Jerusalem.”

Archaeologists have uncovered revolt coins like this one through the years while retracing the history of the Bar Kokhba Revolt. The coins featured images of the Temple, trumpets, and harps along with the descriptions: “Redemption of Israel” and “Freedom of Israel.”

This coin revealed on Monday is the only one from that period bearing the name “Jerusalem” ever discovered in Jerusalem.

“Finding a coin with the name Jerusalem in it within Jerusalem was very exciting for me,” said Moran Hagbi, Excavation Director of the Israel Antiquities Authority.

Excavators are speculating about how the coin got to Jerusalem because the Jewish rebels never breached the ancient city—which was held by the Romans at the time.

Experts believe one of the soldiers serving in Rome’s Tenth Legion near the Temple Mount found the coin and brought it to Jerusalem after defeating the Jewish rebels.

“The Bar Kokhba Revolt overwhelmed the Roman Empire and they had to bring more forces from around the Roman Empire,” said Hagbi.

“The soldiers of these units went back to their bases after the suppression of the revolt and brought back with them these coins. How do we know? Almost 20 coins were found around Europe in sites that are recognized with the Roman Legions and these coins were found in the sites. It is likely that this coin was brought by a Roman soldier from the Tenth Legion as a souvenir from the revolt,” Hagbi explained.

Christian Ministry in Pakistan is Filling the Atmosphere with Young Voices Worshiping Jesus

Published

on

Jesus My Shelter ministry in Toba Tek Singh, Pakistan has been leading children and youth in the Word of God and worship for many years.

Their orphanage, school and women’s program are all faith-based and successful.

Recently, Jesus My Shelter began Hosanna Studios, with the goal of “working for the Word of God in Pakistan by producing Christian worship songs performed by children; and building worshippers of God.”

Musician-songwriter and producer, Saqib Yaqub explained, “We are committed to engage the children of this generation with the Bible and expressing a love for Jesus Christ through Christian Music.

“We are bringing all our best efforts and practices to motivate and encourage Christian children to become worshippers, musicians and producers for our Savior,” he added.

Yaqub notes their studio exists to train young people in vocal and musical arrangement, as well as production of worship songs. And that their mission is to “engage the children of this generation with the Bible and a love for Jesus Christ through music.” (Image: Hosanna Studios/Music School)

As COVID-19 has affected people and ministries around the world, it’s also made things difficult for the training school, and Yaqub says he hopes other Believers who appreciate their mission will come alongside and help support it.

Their worship project is called “Zaboor With Joy” (Psalm With Joy), and their worship productions are available to view on the YouTube channel for Hosanna Studios.

This is “a Christ-centered and Bible based Christian children family that will grow around the world,” said Yaqub regarding the project, “A family with one vision; glorifying and praising Jesus Christ with beautiful, soulful voices and music.”
