While archeologists in Turkey are examining the ancient city that was discovered in Nevsehir, archaeologists in Jerusalem may have discovered an even more significant finding.
15 years ago archeologists found a building in Jerusalem that they believed may have been a major biblical site. These archaeologists now believe they can officially say that the remains that they have found belong to Herod, the Great Palace. For those who are unfamiliar with biblical teachings, this palace is said to be the place where Jesus Christ was put on trial prior to his crucifixion.
The palace in Biblical passages is said to stand on the western side of Jerusalem’s old city, a location that is believed to be where the palace that was discovered stands today. The stone pavement and the location of the palace near a gate is said to match the descriptions that were depicted within the Bible in the Gospel of John. The building walls, sewage system and prison located underneath match descriptions that are in the Bible as well. The location of the palace is located near the Tower of David Museum, who originally came across the remnants while attempting to span their museum, it is the location where the trial presumed to have taken place by many historians all along.
This is an extravagant find because this location is essentially where Jesus was told that he would be sentenced to death before taken to Golgotha, the location where he would be tortured and crucified.
