After the terrorist attacks on 9/11, an open bible fused into a fragment of steel from the Twin Towers was found in March 2002 by a New York firefighter during the recovery phase at Ground Zero post 9/11  (Ira Block), under the Tully Road, a temporary truck route that covered the last remnants of the south tower. As incredible as it is that the page is easily readable, the prophetic message it contains sent chills down his spine.

After reading the words, the unnamed firefighter called over a nearby photographer, Joel Meyerowitz, who found it had a particular message to convey, to document the unbelievable message.

Meyerowitz marveled that the Bible was preserved intact, and even more, that it was turned to a particular passage from Matthew 5 (KJV) which says:

“Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth: But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also” (vs. 38-39).

“Of all the pages in the Bible that it would be open to, that was remarkable,” stated Meyerowitz.

In a YouTube video, photographer Joel Meyerowitz explains that he spent nine months at Ground Zero taking photos in the aftermath of 9/11. He shares how a firefighter working there gave him pages from a Bible welded to a piece of steel.
