Of course there was a specific gate that the man was carried to daily, this is obviously expressed in the scripture. I also believe that there is a beauty lies in the miracle.
The healing that God wrought in the life of this lame beggar who had been carried to this place daily. I have had miraculous experiences in various places over the years. I really appreciate the research and thought that went into this article. Thanks for taking the time to help us to better understand scripture! Enjoy reading everyone comments the scriptures does say he was carried there.
So the men who would carry him was only allowed to carry him to the gate no other ones because of the Jews and so on. But yes this was for the glory of God..
And a man crippled from birth was carried and placed at the gate of the temple called “the Beautiful Gate” every day to beg for alms from the. According to the New Testament, the Beautiful Gate was one of the gates belonging to the Temple in Jerusalem prior to its destruction by the Romans in AD It was referred to as "beautiful" in chapter 3 of the Acts of the Apostles: την θυραν του ιερου την λεγομενην ωραιαν (the gate of the temple which is called Beautiful).
I still believe, as do many others, that the Double Gate is the best candidate as that was the mian entrance to the Temple Mount. The Triple Gate gave access to large storerooms and was used mainly by priests.
The Southern steps and the double gate were holy ground when I stood there… indeed a beautiful place…. Lynn, your attestation is an exact replication of my experience there at the Southern Steps, about 10 days before your post. Exactly my feeling as well. Thanks for posting.
The research and findings of the Beautiful gate spoken of in Acts 3 is impressive. It is confirmation when an event is put into perspective when connected to an actual place. These unknown men, may have carried him every day for years. Unselfish acts like this should be practiced by us daily.
Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. The Beholder is who healed the man!
And that is Beautiful! Nice try!
Thank God for blessing others to bless me. God bless. It remains in a collective mind as a beautiful place. It is true that a gate by that name is not mentioned in the historical sources. That name was first given in Antioch Acts I still believe that the Double Gate is the best candidate for the reasons I set out in this post. The thing that amazes me most about this story is that the location was prominent.
People went through the gate regularly and they knew the crippled man who was a fixture at this gate. The leaders knew him. He had been here for years. Jesus may well have seen him there and chosen not to heal him. But when the time was right God used his infirmity to do a mighty deed. His healing gave legitimacy to the apostles and caused many to believe.
I am confident God still works mighty miracles through us. Even in our infirmity.
