Random Scripture "Do you not say, 'There are yet four months, then comes the harvest'? Look, I tell you, lift up your eyes, and see that the fields are white for harvest. Already the one who reaps is receiving wages and gathering fruit for eternal life, so that sower and reaper may rejoice together. For here the saying holds true, 'One sows and another reaps.' I sent you to reap that for which you did not labor. Others have labored, and you have entered into their labor."
John 4:35-38

Gobekli Tepe: the lost Garden of Eden?


There was recently an article posted on Daily Mail about a place called Gobekli Tepe.  Gobekli Tepe was discovered by a Kurdish man in the rolling plains of Turkey in the summer of 1994.  The site, described by some as the most important archaeological site in the world, is believed to be the possible location of the Garden of Eden found in the story of Genesis.  The site contains many large stone pillars with carvings on them.

In Genesis, the Garden of Eden is said to lie where four rivers meet.  It is widely accepted that two of these rivers are the Tigris and Euphrates.  Gobekli Tepe lies between both of these rivers.

Is this the true location of the Garden of Eden?  I don't think anybody is sure, but the topic is still very fascinating to learn about, realizing that there is always the possibility it could indeed be the place where Adam and Eve once lived in the garden .
