REVEALED: King Herod’s Great Four-Way Temple Mount Staircase
Remnants of a massive 2000-year-old arch jutting out of Jerusalem’s Western Wall have long puzzled archaeologists as to its purpose. Now, Jerusalem archaeologist Dr. Eilat Mazar has a brand new theory: The arch was part of a monumental four-way staircase, a structure completely unique among ancient classical architecture. On today’s program, host Brent Nagtegaal describes this amazing interpretation as documented in Dr. Mazar’s recently published book, Over the Crossroads of Time: Jerusalem’s Temple Mount Monumental Staircases.
