    Tales of the 'Broad Wall' of Jerusalem


    One was the ability to clear and build an even nicer, more comfortable Quarter. The other was the ability to actually dig and excavate under former homes for treasures more valuable than any mineral the earth can offer. Jerusalem of a century ago, a millenia, two, or three -- has been discovered and restored. Oh if the stones could only speak!

    One of the more dramatic finds is the "Broad Wall" where 2,700 year ago a great wall surrounded First Temple Jerusalem. It was some 25 feet high and six feet thick. The lower remains of this wall were uncovered.

    One of the most famous Biblical pairs, King Hezekia and the prophet Isaiah stood together atop the wall facing the challenge of their lives. Sancehrev, king of Assyria and world conquerer, sent Ravshaka, who spoke perfect Hebrew, to the starving and frightened Jewish population to demand surrender. He suggested they serve his master and live, or rely on the god of Israel and die a terrible death.

    King Hezekia and his court were distraught, and asked Isaiah what they should do. The prophet replied, "Don't worry, G-d has promised that 'not one arrow will strike Jeusalem and Sancherev will go back the way he came.'"

    Psalms 118:26 Blessed be he that cometh in the name of the LORD: we have blessed you out of the house of the LORD.

    I use the KJV Bible, unless otherwise noted.
