A newly discovered water system has been making news in Israel. It’s not far from Jerusalem and Bethlehem and it has some intriguing archaeological features, including proto-aeolic capitals. Proto-aeolic capitals have been associated with Royal Judean construction.

On this week’s program I discuss the significance of this discovery with Todd Bolen of bibleplaces.com. We also discuss reports that some poorly stored wooden beams seen on the Temple Mount may actually be beams used in the construction of the ancient Jewish temples built by Solomon and Herod.
