Shake thyself from the dust; arise, and sit enthroned, O Jerusalem;
In recent times, Ancient Jerusalem has been shaking off the dust through intensive ongoing excavations, rising to take her rightful place as spoken by the prophet Isaiah.
Ancient Jerusalem has only been actively excavated in the last 25 years, following in the footsteps of the earlier excavators during the late 1800’s and 1900’s. Tremendous discoveries have been made including the Palace of the Davidic Dynasty, Hezekiah’s Tunnel, Pool of Siloam and the Pilgram Ascent to Temple Mount. Relics include the Bell of the High Priest, Seals bearing names as written in the Book of Jeremiah and the Priestly Blessing Silver scroll only to mention a few.
Millions of people around the world feel a deep personal and spiritual connection to Jerusalem and are seeking a meaningful way to express their devotion and commitment. In response to this the Jerusalem Watch initiative was developed, offering those passionate about Jerusalem a tangible opportunity to connect by taking an active role in uncovering the glory and history of Biblical Jerusalem; literally becoming part of the fulfillment of Biblical prophecy.
By joining this group of dedicated people from around the world, you are assisting us in releasing the ancient city from her millennia old prison – shaking off the dust, and committing to see her rise and take her rightful place as a “Praise to the Earth” in the days to come.
