(CBN News) The Tower of David Museum in Jerusalem announced the discovery of a rare silver “Tyre Coin.” This coin was likely used to pay the Temple Tax during the reign of King Herod.
“We know from the Gospels that Jesus visited Jerusalem … and we know that He talked to the money changers. So here we have the evidence, the archaeological evidence to the historical sources,” Eilat Lieber, the Director of the Museum told CBN News.
The museum discovered the coin during a major renovation and conservation project. A big part of the project is the work done on the Phaesel tower built by King Herod.
