Today's (Dec. 14th) 360° Photo of the Day

Post by Philip » Fri Dec 14, 2018 9:42 am

36PHOTO OF THE DAY: The Wailing (or Western Wall) in Jerusalem

Photo: https://www.google.com/maps/@31.7765133 ... 704!8i4352

Note: You can zoom in and out on the photo and click and drag for a 360° panoramic view

History: This wall is all that remains of the second temple (destroyed by the Romans in 70 A.D.). Solomon's (much more magnificent) temple was the first one on this site, before it was burned and razed by Nebuchadnezzar in 587 B.C. (thus leading to Israel's period of Babylonian captivity). The second temple was much more modest and rebuilt when Persian emperor Cyrus the Great allowed the Jews to return to Israel and rebuild their temple, beginning in 538 B.C. (prophesied by Isaiah, some 150 years before Cyrus came to the throne): https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?s ... ersion=ESV (and read more here): https://www.christiancourier.com/articl ... l-prophecy, with its dedication in 515 B.C. Later, Herod the Great greatly refurbished the second temple's complex and its wall and facades (finished about 20 B.C).

You can see the Western / "Wailing" wall labeled in this photo:

Israel's Red Sea Point of Crossing

36PHOTO OF THE DAY: Straights of Tiran: Likely point Israel miraculously crossed the Red Sea

Photo: https://www.google.com/maps/@28.0670019 ... 704!8i4352

Note: You can zoom in and out on the photo and click and drag for a 360° panoramic view

This map shows the location, at the southern and narrowest point of the Gulf of Aquaba: https://www.google.com/maps/place/Great ... 31.1375674

While the exact point Israel crossed the Red Sea isn't known (See Passage: https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?s ... ersion=ESV) the above photo's location, however, lines up very well with many Biblical clues - detailed here: http://www.bible.ca/archeology/bible-ar ... ed-sea.htm

I went to the wailing wall once. I felt like such a moron, standing there with my harpoon.

36PHOTO OF THE DAY: Cleopatra's gate, in downtown Tarsus (present-day Turkey) - the city of the Apostle Paul's birth.

Very cool - this photo shows the the very gate through which Marc Antony and Cleopatra entered the city (Tarsus is also where they met). During the time of Alexander the Great, (died in 323 B.C.), Tarsus was considered the most influential city in Asia Minor. While still quite young, Paul's father (a pharisee as well) sent him from Tarsus to Jerusalem, to begin his classical education with Gamaliel (Acts 22:3) - one of the most important rabbis in Jewish history. Thought to have written 14 of the New Testament's 27 books, Paul was one of the most-educated people of his time!
