The size of the pool in John 5.2, according to some archeologists, ‚Äúwas trapezoidal in shape, 165 feet (49.5 m) wide at one end, 220 ft. (66 m) wide at the other, and 315 ft. (94.5 m) long, divided by a central partition.‚Äù (http://www.bible.org/page.php?page_id=1312)
We just had our church picnic Sunday night. It was at Burdette park. So here I am imagining my whole church around the pool, and someone shouting out, ‚ÄúOk, when I blow this whistle, the first person in the pool gets healed of all of their illness!‚Äù
What absolute chaos.
I told Cindy about that and she said, ‚ÄúI wonder how many people drowned?!‚Äù
