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

The following excerpt is from an article that originally appeared on Christian Today

Was this structure built by God’s people?

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.

There are six of the sandal-shaped rock structures in total, reports WND.com, and they are located just east to the Jordan River.
