Hezekiah’s Tunnel

The rebellion of the king of Judah against the Assyrian Empire placed Jerusalem in great danger. This video depicts Jerusalem's ordeal under the threat of Assyrian siege and Hezekiah's creative solution to the city's resulting water problem. By means of Hezekiah's tunnel, which is mentioned in the Bible and in the Shiloah (Siloam) Inscription, the water of the Gihon Spring was diverted into the city, out of reach of the Assyrians.
