2020 photo of Hezekiah’s Tunnel also known as the Siloam Tunnel. The tunnel was carved through nearly 100 feet of solid bedrock from a spring outside of Jerusalem to the Pool of Siloam. The Siloam Inscription reveals that there were two sets of workers carving their way through opposite ends until they met in the middle.
In the 8th century BC when Hezekiah was king of Judah, the Assyrians came and besieged the city of Jerusalem. King Hezekiah quickly diverted the city’s fresh water supply to withstand the siege.
“And when Hezekiah saw that Sennacherib was come, and that he was purposed to fight against Jerusalem, He took counsel with his princes and his mighty men to stop the waters of the fountains which were without the city: and they did help him. So there was gathered much people together, who stopped all the fountains, and the brook that ran through the midst of the land, saying, Why should the kings of Assyria come, and find much water?” 2 Chronicles 32:2-4
This was the event when the Bible says that Isaiah spoke a prophecy against the Assyrians and the Angel of the LORD slew 185,000 Assyrians in one night.
