Archaeologists Make Big Discovery About One Of Jesus' Miracles

You may have thought of it as the "Pool of Salami" as a child, but archeologists have made a major discovery when it comes to the Pool of Siloam where Jesus used spit and clay to heal a blind man's eyes.


According to the Christian Post, the famous pool's location has long been a mystery, leading Bible critics to question if it ever existed. But quite "by accident," construction workers found an ancient pool when fixing a water pipe near Temple Mount. Further archaeological study verified that the pool matched the description and era for when it was constructed by King Hezekiah seven centuries before Jesus' earthly birth.

While Christians have God's assurance to rely on for the authenticity of biblical places and events, it is still nice to see non-believing scholars acknowledge historical accuracy in the much-criticized Gospel of John.
