Hezekiah’s Tunnel Inscription - King Hezekiah of Judah ruled from 721 to 686 BC. Fearing a siege by the Assyrian king, Sennacherib, he preserved Jerusalem’s water supply by cutting a tunnel through 1,750 feet of solid rock from the Gihon Spring to the Pool of Siloam inside the city walls (2 Kings 20; 2 Chron. 32). At the end of the tunnel, an inscription, celebrates this remarkable accomplishment. #TheStory #Isaiah #KingHezekiah #StandStrong #PurifyYourHeart #BiblicalArchaeology

In the Biblical passage found in 2 Kings 20:20 there is a reference to a "tunnel" built by King Hezekiah in Jerusalem to bring water into the city c. 700 BC. The tunnel is still open, and visitors can walk through it. It is about one-third of a mile long, and the water is roughly knee deep.

King Hezekiah's Seal. Known as a bulla, the clay was impressed with a seal belonging to King Hezekiah, who ruled Judah from c. 727–698 B.C.E. It was Hezekiah who saved Jerusalem from a siege by the Assyrian monarch Sennacherib by fortifying and expanding the city’s walls and by building the tunnel that still bears his name to ensure a steady supply of water.
