Eli Shukron on Discoveries in the City of David:

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.
