Some of the Pharisees in the crowd said to Jesus, "Teacher, rebuke your disciples!"
"I tell you," he replied, "if they keep quiet, the stones will cry out." Luke 19:40
Water stain on Western Wall stirs expectations for the Messiah
Two Jewish men tried to climb the Western Wall because a water stain on one large stone has led some ultra-Orthodox Jews to conclude that redemption is near and the Messiah is on his way.
Rabbi Shmuel Rabinovitch, the chief rabbi of the Western Wall - also known as the Wailing Wall - said Wednesday the water stain was discovered four days ago by worshippers who pray at the base of the wall. Some Jewish mystics believe it is a sign the "wall is crying," signaling the coming of the Messiah, he said.
