Bible and Archaeology Site

Todd Bolen called attention to Bible and Archaeology-Online Museum, a site that features fifty items in chronological order, beginning with the oldest artifacts first. Images are high resolution, and helpful explanations are included. I recommend it as a handy and helpful resource. Visit the site here.

Among the items listed was Hezekiah’s tunnel, dug (701 BC) in anticipation of the Assyrian threat under King Sennacherib. The tunnel brought water from the source, the Gihon Spring, which was outside Jerusalem’s wall, to a pool within the city. Thus the Assyrians would have no water, while the Jewish inhabitants inside Jerusalem would have a ready supply.

I previously posted an article on the tunnel here, entitled “The Siloam Inscription.”
