The Pool of Bethesda

The Pool of Bethesda

This is one of the few sites that there is actually little debate about. It is located just north of the temple mount. This is the "exact" location where Jesus healed the man at the waters of the Pool of Bethesda. The story is found in John 5. The colonnades were visible at the time of Christ, but the pools would not have been enclosed like it now is. At that time, the floor level was much lower.

During Biblical times, pools were public facilities where water was stored for later use. They generally were not used for swimming.
