Massive Biblical Discovery Rocks the Globe [VIEW]
Laborers now believe they have found the biblical Pool of Siloam in Jerusalem. The Pool of Siloam isn’t only a sacred Christian site… it is the very setting described in the Gospel of John in which Jesus Christ healed a blind man. According to John 9, the Son of God spat in the dirt, rubbed the mud on the man’s eyes and told him to go wash in the Pool of Siloam. When the man obeyed, he was instantly healed of his life-long affliction. The pool is exactly where John said it was. Why it was not discovered until recently, I have no idea.
From Mad World News:
Archaeologists have been uncovering ancient artifacts that coincide with biblical accounts of history for decades, provoking serious questions in unbelievers that the stories are more accurate than previously thought. However, a major 21st-century discovery has proven the accuracy of one of the most influential miracles of Jesus recorded in the Gospel Of John.
For centuries, skeptics have relied on the lack of physical proof to argue that the miraculous events and religious history of the Bible are completely unfounded. But as researchers continue to uncover a wealth of undeniable evidence backing the world’s most influential book, cynics are beginning to suspect that there is more truth in the ancient scriptures than they presumed possible.
In 2005, sewage workers began maintenance on pipes in the Old City of Jerusalem, never expecting they’d be the first to witness an age-old artifact which many of the most scholarly historians believed never existed.
The Los Angeles Times reports that the workers unearthed an unexpected freshwater reservoir, upon which they immediately contacted researchers for study. Archaeologists soon found that this long-lost pool was actually the ancient Pool of Siloam, a location once believed by critics to be a myth. However, the revelation doesn’t end there.
More and more events in the Bible are now being proven, much to the chagrin of those who have claimed the stories were myths and fabrications. Charisma News had this to say: “The point is that it’s become increasingly clear that the default scholarly position of disbelieving the Bible because it is the Bible is untenable,” Metaxas writes. “Of course, Christians should already know that. But it’s still gratifying to see that other people are able to see it, as well. Even if they have to go to the Pool of Siloam to do it.” Just one year after the uncovering of the Pool of Siloam, archaeologists celebrated what they believe to be the very house in which Joseph, Mary and young Jesus resided. The Bible is recorded history. Some of it may be in the form of parables, but much of it did happen. This discovery rocks global views concerning the Bible and further proves that the Bible is historically accurate.
