In this highlight video from a lecture on biblical archaeology, Christopher Gornold-Smith continues his explanation of the strange creatures known as cherubim .
Cherubim and the Four Faces
Cherubim are described in the Bible as having four faces: a face of an ox, a lion, an eagle and a man. Christopher shows through historical evidence how these faces depict different aspects of a king’s power, majesty, and intelligence. He then concludes by providing an application of what cherubim can teach us about the character of God.
