Tag: Siloam Pool
The Siloam Pool, according to the Gospel of John, is the location where Jesus healed the blind man (John 9:1–11). In June 2004, the ruins of the Siloam Pool were discovered during construction work to repair a large water pipe south of Jerusalem’s Temple Mount, at the southern end of the ridge known as the City of David. Archaeologists Ronny Reich and Eli Shukron identified two ancient stone steps, and further excavation revealed that they were part of a monumental pool from the Second Temple period, the period in which Jesus lived.
