A "New" Old Church Found in Israel
This is cool. The mosaic in this photo from MSNBC is really big and clear. The fish in the middle is an ancient Christian symbol, which I think comes from the way Christians would secretly refer to themselves when they were under persecution. The word "fish" was similar to the acronym, ICTHUS, which stands for "Jesus, Son of God, Savior." Here is a cool link to a very cool-looking website and a lot of info on Christian symbols.
