Archaeology and the Bible 31: The pool of Bethseada

Reference in the Bible

Joh 5:2 Now there is in Jerusalem by the sheep gate a pool, which is called in Hebrew Bethesda, having five porches.
Joh 5:3 In these lay a multitude of them that were sick, blind, halt, withered, waiting for the moving of the water
You can see the five porches in the above images

Thank for showing these photos. You mentioned that there are 5 porches in the above images; unfortunately, I can't quite see it. Would you mind inserting arrows within the photos? Thanks, Roy
