THE SITE WHERE JESUS STOOD TRIAL BEFORE PONTIUS PILATE IS FOUND NEAR JERUSALEM'S TOWER OF DAVID MUSEUM

According to the Washington Post, the discovery was made during an excavation that began 15 years ago beneath an abandoned building close to the Tower of David Museum in Jerusalem.

Amit Re'em, the Jerusalem district archaeologist who led the excavation, said that while the uncovered building had in past centuries been used as a prison by the Ottoman Empire, Christ was likely trialed there by the brutal ruler, Herod the Great, as found in the New Testament book of John.
