Incredible Discovery Of Jesus' Last Supper Room By Israeli Archaeologists

An incredible discovery has been made by Israeli archaeologists, who have given new life to the ancient stone room traditionally believed to be the site of Jesus' Last Supper on Mt. Zion in Jerusalem. 

"It delivers the message of the Last Supper Room, Christ as a Messiah, as victorious, as a victim - and the lion"

Reuters reports that the arched stone-built hall in Jerusalem venerated by Christians as the site of Jesus' Last Supper has been digitally recreated by archaeologists using laser scanners and advanced photography. 

"We managed to reach every corner of the building. We managed to create 3D models of this wonderful and sanctified place," archaeologist Amit Re'em told Reuters of the project, which began in 2016. "We managed in one of the ... holiest places in Jerusalem, to use this technology and this is a breakthrough."

Re'em said they found symbols of the "Lion of Judah" and "Angus Dei", a lamb that represents Jesus.

"It tells the story of this room," Re'em said.

"It delivers the message of the Last (Supper) Room, Christ as a Messiah, as victorious, as a victim - and the lion, the lion is a symbol of the Davidic dynasty. They combine together in this room."
