The Jerusalem Dragon Well

Warren's ShaftThe Old Testament seers prophesied against a number of ancient cities. On multiple occasions, the destroyed and abandoned cities were condemned to become the lair of dragons (see Isaiah 34:13 and Jeremiah 51:37). The prophet Jeremiah actually made the prediction that Israel would be carried away into captivity and Jerusalem would be broken down and inhabited by dragons (9:11). It seems this came true sometime before Nehemiah came from Babylon to visit the ruined city and rebuild the Jerusalem walls. By then there was a peculiar name give to a well in Nehemiah 2:13 (all verses quoted are from the KJV), the “dragon well”. Perhaps the debris near that well was the den of some reptile who had moved in. After killing or chasing off the dragon, the people could again use it and that well was thereafter remembered as the “dragon well.” Tradition informs us this well is Warren’s Shaft (pictured above). Genesis Park features other possible Dinosaurians in the Bible.

    Wouldn’t dinosaurs have been destroyed with the flood? Is there any evidence in archeological finds?

  2. Jeroen Vonk – 

    Dinosaurs are not destroyed. Proof of that is the many pottery found with so called dragon’s on it. And before the flood everything lived longer, so little saurus, reptiles, could grow big, because they keep growing.

  3. Jeroen Vonk – 

    Dragon’s well is the same as Serpent’s well.Could be the well of Bethesda, where people looked for healing. In later Roman times they placed the Temple of Esculaep, the serpent, there. The healing was probably not from the Lord.
