The Tombs of John and Saladin

johnb2John the Nazarite Baptist was beheaded. St. Paul chased his church into Damascus where John’s head is at rest. Kurdish fighters have lost their head, fighting ISIS, not running away from ISIS who destroy ancient shrines, which is current history. The remains of Saladin lie near John.
Jon the Nazarite
“After the Arab conquest of Damascus in 634, the mosque was built on the site of a Christian basilica dedicated to John the Baptist (Yahya), honored as a prophet by Christians and Muslims alike. A legend dating to the 6th century holds that the building contains the head of John the Baptist. The mosque is also believed by Muslims to be the place where Jesus (Isa) will return at the End of Days. The tomb of Saladin stands in a small garden adjoining the north wall of the mosque.”

    Like Lazarus the Spirit of John comes out of his tomb that ISIS is threatening to destroy. We are in Revelations. Who can read the small scroll?
