Evidence Proving Last Battle Of Jerusalem Discovered By Archaeologists

Jerusalem Discovered

– Evidence of the last battle of Jerusalem discovered

–  Says Jesus would have walked on newly excavated road to the Temple Mount

Archaeologists in Israel have discovered evidence of the last battle between Roman soldiers and Jewish rebels which catalyzed the annihilation of Jerusalem about 2,000 years ago, and they also uncovered a road where Jesus would have walked.

They also claimed to have  discovered arrowheads and stone ballista balls on the main street that leads to the Temple, The Siege of Jerusalem by the Roman army ended with the sacking of the city and the destruction of its Second Temple in the year 70. The Roman army, led by the future Emperor Titus besieged and conquered the city of Jerusalem. Jews had barricaded themselves in the city since the year 66.

The excavation which started several years ago uncovered a road running from the city’s gates and the Pool of Siloam to the Temple, where Jesus would have certainly walked, according to Aleteia.

“Recent research indicates that the street was built after Herod’s reign, under the auspices of the Roman procurators of Jerusalem, and perhaps even during the tenure of the Roman governor Pontius Pilate, who is also known for having sentenced Jesus to death by crucifixion,” said Nahshon Szanton and Moran Hagbi, one of the directors of the excavation on behalf of the authority, according to Jerusalem Post. “This conclusion sheds new light on the history of Jerusalem in the late Second Temple period, and reinforces recognition of the importance of the Roman procurators’ rule in shaping the character of Jerusalem.”
