Old Testament

The Pentateuch

What is the link between the Liberty Bell in Philadelphia and the Bible?

Leviticus 25:10 is inscribed on the Liberty Bell in Philadelphia: “Proclaim liberty throughout the land unto all the inhabitants thereof”.

Incidentally, Philadelphia is mentioned in the Bible twice, once in Revelation 1:10, and once in Revelation 3:7. Of course, it is not the Philadelphia in Pennsylvania. Philadelphia was a city in the province of Lydia in what is modern-day Turkey. The name Philadelphia means “place of brotherly love.”
