Sample Book Insights:
#1 The Last Supper by Leonardo da Vinci was one of the most well-known images of all time. It was left unprotected from pollution and humidity, and it had been darkened by five hundred years of dust, mold, and candle soot. But it was restored in 1999, and its original beauty was revealed.
#2 The Pool of Siloam was the main source of fresh water within Jerusalem’s walls. It was discovered in 2004, and archaeologists found a wide, stepped first-century street that leads from the pool up to the Temple. It would have been the final steps of ascent for pilgrims after days or weeks of traveling to celebrate the feasts.
#3 The Pool of Siloam played a part in the ministry of Jesus. Each night of the joyous Feast of Tabernacles, the high priest would parade down this street amid great fanfare and fill a golden pitcher with living water from the pool. On the last day of the feast, the priest would pour the living water onto the sacrificial pyre.
#4 The field of biblical archaeology is the study of the Bible in the land of Israel, and it can help you understand the Bible better. It can help you understand the Bible’s importance in history and culture, and it can shed light on difficult chapters.
