Random Scripture "Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened. Or which one of you, if his son asks him for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a serpent? If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask him!"
Matthew 7:7-11

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 .
