Places and things from the Bible that still exist till today

Three Places and things from the Bible that have been allegedly spotted in present age

Hello, thanks for clicking. Wether Christian, Muslim or any other religion, you must have at least heard some of the many stories form the religious holy book of the Christians.

 

From Noah's ark to Jesus turning wine to water, there are many. But how many relics from these famous stories can still be seen today and some of them even prove that indeed,

these stories and the people involved in them, did happen exist at a point in time. Lets look at some of them

 

Noah's ark

 

Most of us have probably heard the story of Noah and his ark. If you haven't, well, according to the Bible,

Noah was 530 years when he was instructed by God to build the ark. I know 530 sounds like an unbearable age but people live longer in those times. 530 years then would be like 65 years now.

Well also according to the Bible, Noah's ark crashed into Mount Ararat (in what is modern day turkey) where it rested. Not to long ago a similar object was also discovered. See images

 

This canoe-shaped rock structure is actually wood. The material was tested and indeed had traces of gopher wood which Noah used to build the ark.

The strict measures 300 cubits long and 30 cubits high, exactly as said in the Bible.

 

Some people actually believe this is the vessel of the infamous Noah while some are still skeptical of the idea. What do you think?

Another story is that of lots wife, who was turned to a pillar of salt when she looked back after she was instructed not to.

In case you don't know the story, lot and his family lived in a city famous for its sin. It isn't specified whether it was Sodom or Gomorrah.

According to the Bible God got fed up with the people of Sodom and Gomorrah and decided to destroy them but he instructed lot to leave before he did.

God told lot and his family not to look back as they ran away. But unfortunately, lot's 2nd wife got carried away and did look back. She was instantly turned to a pillar of salt. See photos

 

Christians who go on religious visits to Israel can actual see this and they get to take a portion of the salt back home with them as a souvenir.

 

Golgotha ( crucifixion point)

Golgotha is the place where Jesus Christ was crucified and killed along 2 criminals. It is also a point in Israel. See photos

The red sea was where Moses performed one of his 12 miracles. He completely turned it to blood. This is what the red sea looks like now
