What a discovery this is! One of the most grand structures from the Second Temple time period. Wow is all there is to say.
The Second Temple Period Comes to Life
Israel is filled with archaeology. So much so that different time periods literally come to life in the land of Israel. As Jews, we learn from the religious texts and testimonies about the various time periods throughout history. We know the laws of the Temple. We know the measurements and the services that were performed. And then, we see it. We discover the secrets buried in the dirt of Jerusalem and the rest of Israel. Many discoveries have been made from the Second Temple period which shed light on life back then. And it is truly fascinating.
Just Admit the Truth
All the facts point to one thing: A Jewish Jerusalem. A history of the Jewish people in the land of Israel for thousands of years. It is much easier to just admit the truth instead of lying. The deniers have no evidence for their lies. But the truth has everything on its side: The Bible, historical artifacts, archaeology.
And discvoveries like these are open for the public to see with their own eyes. It is tangible and real!
As Mordechai (Suli) Eliav, Director of the Western Wall Heritage Foundation said, “The stones of Jerusalem tell a story. And if you know to listen to every layer, and read every stone, and enter into every period, you live here with the message that the more we delve into the past, there is no doubt that they will open the future for us.”
