The Israel Antiquities Authority, the Israel National Parks Authority, and the City of David Foundation recently announced plans to fully excavate the entire Pool of Siloam in Jerusalem.

The steps of the Pool of Siloam were discovered in 2004 during repairs to a drainage system. The pool was then partially excavated by Eli Shukron and Ronny Reich. The new excavations will be carried out in full sight of visitors, as the site is part of a tourist route.

The Pool of Siloam was originally constructed by King Hezekiah (2 Kings 20:20) and was later expanded and renovated during the Second Temple era. Jesus healed a blind man by anointing his eyes with mud and telling him to go wash in the Pool of Siloam (John 9:1–7).

We would appreciate your donation.
