Footprints of God? Archaeologists baffled by giant sandal-shaped rocks near the Jordan River

(Worthy News) - They are being dubbed the 'footprints of God' – large sandal-shaped formations in the earth that archaeologists think date back to the time the Israelites entered the Promised Land.

The possible dates of the mysterious formations are causing excitement among Israeli archaeologists because they think they may even be linked to Joshua, who led the Israelites through the desert to the Promised Land after the death of Moses.

Despite the nickname, archaeologists have established that they are in fact manmade, not natural, so they are not God's literal footprint.

Yet, given the possible timing and their location, they may be His figurative footprint as archaeologists are asking the serious question of whether they were indeed erected by Joshua and his followers. [ Source: Christian Today (Read More...) ]
