A photographer was given pages of a Bible recovered at Ground Zero in the aftermath of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, and found it had a particular message to convey.
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.
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.
