  • Righteous Judge (Nest Family).  DVD centers around two stories - the story of the “Sinful Woman” and the “Man Born Blind" (Siloam – John 9).  Would be good movie to show focusing in on the second story in more depth in your questions and review.

Computer - Siloam


Pathways to Jerusalem CD  is a computer program that has really well done and entertaining introductions to Solomon's Temple and Herod's Second Temple. It's available from and I have always loved using it. 


It has a section on the pool of Siloam.

Life of Christ CD also has a Pool of Siloam lesson.

I've been to the Pool of Siloam.... arriving through Hezekiah's tunnel which brings water from the Gihon Spring. The day I was there some workmen were cleaning the pool and removing COINS that people had thrown in it. Isn't it interesting that people throw coins in fountains/pools to make a wish.

I wonder... could your kids make their OWN Pool of Siloam to collect coins for a ministry to those with physical handicaps?
