Eli Shukron and Pastor Tim Remington

This video is a sermon created by Pastor Tim Remington of the Altar Church regarding Jerusalem, Temple Mount and Temple Zero on Nov 18, 2018.  This sermon was given after he spent time with Eli Shukron at Temple Zero, Temple Mount and the City of David on a tour.  He soon thereafter hosted Eli in his home in order to prepare for the interviews that were done of Eli on the three programs on Prophecy in the News October 2018.  For maximum details, we recommend you listen to this sermon prior to listening to each of the three interviews Eli provided to Prophecy in the News.  The next three videos build on each other.  The sermon is further explanation of the importance of the site now being called Temple Zero, City of David.  Eli and Tim have a 9-day Christian tour program together in Jerusalem in 2020.  Click here to receive more information.

Eli Shukron: Biblical Archaeology Come to Life

Eli Shukron is an Israeli archaeologist, excavator, scholar and a licensed tour guide of the ancient remains of Jerusalem.

Shukron graduated from the Institute of Archaeology of the Hebrew University in Jerusalem. Working for the Israel Antiquities Authority, Shukron excavated in Israel and focusing on the holy city of Jerusalem for the past 25 years.

In the last 18 years, Eli has:

Excavated extensively in the city of David in Jerusalem.

Been one of the leading experts on the archaeology of Jerusalem.

Discovered and directed the excavation the Pool of Siloam.

Discovered and directed excavation of the Jerusalem Pilgrim Road from the Second Temple era.

With his immense knowledge of ancient Jewish history and his unique experience working in Jerusalem and the City of David, Eli is one of the foremost experts on Biblical archaeology. Having retired from archaeology field work, Eli now acts as a tour leader, helping travelers explore some of the very Biblical sites he himself excavated. At Living Passages, we are very blessed to have Eli participate in our Christian tours by sharing his work and his wisdom as we explore the very places where history has laid buried for thousands of years.

In Recent News:

The newly excavated ruins of ancient Jerusalem are changing the very way scholars envision the landscapes of the Bible. According to AnaRina Heymann, Outreach Coordinator at the City of David in Jerusalem, “The only part of ancient Jerusalem that lies in the Old City is the Temple Mount...The walls of the City of David are more than 3,000 years old.

Some of the most crucial discoveries that contributed to these new conclusions about the location of ancient Jerusalem, were the same Pool of Siloam and Pilgrim Road discovered by Shukron. Researchers believe that the pilgrim travelers going up to the Jewish Temple would wash in the Pool of Siloam before taking the Pilgrim Road up to Temple Mount. The Pool of Siloam famously known as the spot where, in the New Testament, Jesus healed the blind man.

Another contribution made by Shukron was his work on the standing stone where it is believed Melchizedek received the tithe from Abraham.

And this stone, which I have set for a pillar, shall be God's house: and of all that thou shalt give me I will surely give the tenth unto thee.
- Genesis 28:22

“Why did no one touch this stone?
Because it is the House of God” - Eli Shukron
