Cradle of Christianity: Maltz Museum

On our recent trip to Ohio, we visited a brand new Jewish museum called the Maltz Museum. They had a special exhibit, which included some fascinating artifacts, titled "The Cradle of Christianity." This is the first time the Jerusalem Museum has lent these objects to a museum in the United States, I believe. Here is some of what we saw.

Some ossuaries, the one on the left is believed to be the ossuary of Caiaphas.

A sign from a temple post.

A Dead Sea Scroll fragment.

The miracle of water turning into wine, which Jesus performed at the Wedding at Cana, would have taken place in jars like this.

What an interesting exhibit! Thanks for sharing the photos.
