      One of the most dramatic miracles in the New Testament took place at a pool
      in Jerusalem. According to the Gospel of John, Jesus met a man blind since
      birth, rubbed his eyes with Jesus' own spittle and mud and told the man to
      wash in the �Pool of Siloam.� The man emerged from the pool cured. The Pool
      of Siloam, of Gospel fame, has now been found! It is huge, nearly square,
      approximately 270 feet on a side, with three sets of stairs on entering.

      The pool was discovered by archaeologists while monitoring routine
      construction work on a sewer pipe in the oldest section of Jerusalem. The
      archaeologists were startled to see the steps of a first-century pool
      beginning to emerge.

      The full story of this exciting discovery�including conclusive
      archaeological proof that the pool dates to the time of Jesus�is told in the
      September/October 2005 issue of Biblical Archaeology Review (BAR), complete
      with never-before-seen photos. This article is also available in PDF format
