Temple Mikvehs

Temple Mikvehs are Evidence of the Bible’s Historical Accuracy

“And with many other words he testified and exhorted them, saying, “Be saved from this perverse generation.” Then those who gladly received his word were baptized; and that day about three thousand souls were added to them. ”   Acts 2: 40-41

“Now Peter and John went up together to the temple at the hour of prayer, the ninth hour.”             Acts 3: 1

These baptisms must have occurred right in the vicinity of the Temple. One difficulty Bible scholars formerly had was identifying where such a multitude would have been baptized – this was solved when a number of Mikveh” or ceremonial baths were found right below the Temple platform near the Al-Aqsa Mosque.

Yet more physical evidence corroborating Scripture.
