REASON TO BELIEVE # 6
 
THE POOL OF SILOAM  -  For years Bible skeptics and many liberal Bible scholars said the pool did not
exist.  They were proven wrong when it was accidentally uncovered in June 2004 while workers were
 
digging to repair a sewage pipe in the Old City of Jerusalem.  It is the place that Jesus healed the blind man
 
who was commanded to wash his eyes in the Pool of Siloam.  John 9:1-11  The area was sealed off for
 
months but was reopened for more excavation in 2005, and steps were exposed on one side of the Pool. 
 
Four first century coins were found in the mortar of the stone steps and 12 other coins were found in the
 
corner of the pool.  Uncovering the whole pool is hampered by the southern side being under the control of
 
the Greek Orthodox Church.
