Bible Fused to Steel Found in World Trade Center Wreckage-Truth!
Summary of eRumor:
A firefighter found a Bible open to the Gospel of Matthew fused to a piece of steel in 2002 at ground zero of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
It’s true that a Bible was found fused in the wreckage of the World Trade Center shortly after the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
The Bible fused to steel was by a firefighter near the wreckage of the wreckage of the World Trade Center’s south tower on March 30, 2002. Photographer Joel Meyerowitz said he was taking photos nearby when the firefighter gave him the bible:
The Bible fused to steel was open to the Gospel of Matthew, and Meyerowitz said he got chills when he read Matthew 5:38-42 from the open page of the Bible fused to steel:
“You have heard that it was said, ‘Eye for eye, and tooth for tooth.’ But I tell you, do not resist an evil person. If anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to them the other cheek also. And if anyone wants to sue you and take your shirt, hand over your coat as well. If anyone forces you to go one mile, go with them two miles. Give to the one who asks you, and do not turn away from the one who wants to borrow from you.
Meyerowitz held onto the Bible fused to steel until 2010. Then he turned it over to the National September 11 Memorial Museum where it was put on display with additional religious artifacts collected from ground zero in July 2015.
