From Out Of The Rubble

"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 left also.” 

These words from Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount in the Gospel of Matthew were found permanently exposed at Ground Zero after the attack of 9/11.

This page of the Bible was opened to this verse and permanently fused to a chunk of steel that had been part of the World Trade Center.

This artifact was discovered in 2002 by a firefighter under the Tully Road, a temporary truck route that covered the last fragments of the south tower. The firefighter called out to a nearby photographer to snap this picture.
