Sitting in the National September 11 Memorial Museum in New York City is a strange looking chunk of steel. It was found in March 2002 in the wreckage of the Twin Towers, just a few months after the worst terrorist attack ever recorded on U.S. soil brought down the towers and killed nearly 3,000 people. Fused to this piece of steel is a couple of twisted pages from the Bible, showing a large portion of Matthew Chapter 5 and a tiny sliver of Matthew 7. The part showing Chapter 7 contains the very last part of Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount, where he was talking about two types of houses built on different types of foundations – one on rock, the other on sand.
To the casual observer this might be viewed as just another remnant of a very sad event. It was shown to Pope Francis on his recent trip to the U.S., as reported by the New York Times. Jonathan Cahn, author of “The Harbinger” and subject of a new documentary film called “The Harbinger Man,” said he had seen the fused scripture years ago, but he didn’t notice the tiny sliver of Matthew Chapter 7, Verse 27, that shows up in red type. The fragment of steel with the fused Bible pages was discovered by a fireman who handed it to a photographer, Joel Meyerowitz, who was also out in the rubble that day in March 2002. The photographer chose to focus on the larger portion of exposed text, from Matthew Chapter 5, speaking about “retaliation” and how Jesus taught not “an eye for an eye,” but rather to turn the other cheek. A message of forgiveness. FULL REPORT
