Know The Answer?
Who am I: I was called a "friend of God", because I obeyed God without question. My name was changed in later life. To prove my obedience I was asked to sacrifice my son.

Genesis 12:4; 17:5; 20:2; 22:2

This article on the Temple Mount excavations in Jerusalem brings us a look at the city's little known, but impressive Late Roman, Christian and Early Arabic remains. In the days of Jesus and the apostles, Jerusalem was a city of remarkable beauty. Its Herodian builders imprinted their architectural genius on remains that can be seen to this day. But Rome's devastating response to the Jewish revolt brought a cruel and final end to this glorious era. In A.D. 70, Rome's soldiers leveled Jerusalem. Only the three massive towers guarding the western entrance to the city were spared - as a monument to her former greatness and to the magnitude of the Roman victory Josephus, Wars, 6:9: I). The base of those towers is the foundation of what is today called David's Citadel, by the Jaffa Gate.
