Ancient Bell found in Jerusalem Sewer!

Like the infamous ring found by the creature Golum (Then Smeagol from the Lord of the Rings), an ancient small bell, probably worn by a priest 2000 years ago, laid in a dark place for centuries waiting to be found.  Israeli Archaeologists discovered the what they call a “rare find”  underneath the streets of Jerusalem last week in an ancient sewer not far from the temple mount, the holiest place on earth. When Eli Shukron of the Israel Antiquities obtained it for study he attempted what anyone would do: he shook it!  To his surprise a metallic ringing of sorts emitted into the ears of those nearby.

The orb half an inch in diameter has a tiny loop which allows it to be sewn as an ornament to clothes.  It more the likely belonged to a wealthy resident or even possibly a high priest of the Living God!

How did it arrive in a sewer all those years ago? Well a temple priest “walked in the street, and somehow the golden bell fell from his garment into the drainage channel,” Shukron said.

What does this prove? It proves yet again that Archaeology does not conflict the history shown in the Word of God:

Read Exodus 39:24-26   And they made upon the hems of the robe pomegranates of blue, and purple, and scarlet, and twined linen. And they made bells of pure gold, and put the bells between the pomegranates upon the hem of the robe, round about between the pomegranates; A bell and a pomegranate, a bell and a pomegranate, round about the hem of the robe to minister in; as the LORD commanded Moses.
