Here is the distance between the coordinates from the north western corner of the temple mount site in Jerusalem ( 31 46.789’N 35 14.029’E ) to a place just under a half mile due west of Susa train station ( 32 12.256’N 48 17.798’E ).
Distance from 31 46.789’N 35 14.029’E to 32 12.256’N 48 17.798’E is 666.0006 nautical miles.
How interesting is that. Now, all credit here to the much lamented David Flynn for raising this in the first place.
You have to see the beauty of it. From the western most corner (wing?) of the temple mount (which happens to be the northwest corner) to a point just outside the eastern most edge of Shushan.
Looking up the area in google maps and the route that runs slap bang through Shushan on a NNW / SSE trajectory is… route … 37 !!!
Check out Daniel chapter 8
Dan 8:1 In the third year of the reign of King Belshazzar, a vision appeared to me, Daniel, after that which appeared to me at the first.
Dan 8:2 And I looked in the vision, and it happened when I looked that I was at Shushan, the palace, which is in the province of Elam. And in a vision I looked, and I was by the Ulai Canal.
Dan 8:16 And I heard a man’s voice between the banks of Ulai, and he called and said, Gabriel, make this one understand the vision.
The Ulai runs either side of Shushan.
