Archaeologists Find Evidence of Jerusalem’s Destruction 2,000 Years Ago

Archaeologists have found evidence of the battle for Jerusalem two millennia ago as they excavate the main thoroughfare leading to the Second Temple before its destruction by the Romans in 70 AD.

The road, about 20 feet below the surface, leads from the Pool of Siloam to the Temple Mount. Archaeologists believe it could have been built during the reign of Pontius Pilate and would likely have been the route Jesus walked on his way up to the Temple.

“This is probably where Jesus acted and marched during his time,” co-director of the excavation, Moran Hagbi, told CBN News. “Now it’s opening a new era in the research of Jerusalem.”

Among the finds are arrowheads and ballista balls used in the battle against Jerusalem, as recorded by historian Flavius Josephus.

“On the following day, the Romans, having routed the brigades from the town, set the whole on fire as far as [the pool of] Siloam,” the historian wrote.

The Romans used ballista balls, fired by catapults, to bombard Jerusalem. They also discovered arrowheads used by the Jewish rebels in the hard-fought battles against the Roman legionnaires, exactly as Josephus described. Read More
