Seal of Christ

On a recent (November 2005) excavation in the old city of Tiberias a rare sixth century seal was discovered with a picture of Christ and a cross on it and the inscription "Christos". Just like the archaeologists of the past (Rawlinson) it was a couple of employees of the British and American embassies who discovered the seal.

According to Haaretz news Prof. Yizhar Hirschfeld of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, who is directing the dig, said the seal apparently belonged to a highranking church official, and indicated that the church in Tiberias "was stronger than we had thought."

I always thought the Seal of Christ was the Holy Spirit...
