Rolling Stone Tomb

IMG_1841 A few years ago, the Israel Highway Department was digging in a hillside to widen Highway 6953 near Megiddo. In doing so, they hit an extremely large boulder. With more digging, they realized that they an unearthed an ancient rolling stone tomb. This tomb has four inner chambers. (The two that you can see were cut into by the excavation equipment before the realized what they had discovered.) This picture was taken in 2010. Since that time, the highway department has installed a guard rail in front of the tomb. While the guard rail does a great job of protecting the tomb, it makes taking photographs of it difficult.

This will be our last "Photo of the Day" for a week or so while we take some time off during the holidays. We hope that these pictures have been beneficial in helping you understand the Biblical text.
