Too Tall to Fall
Speaking of Egyptian structures, let’s talk about the pyramids, those famous structures that tourists come to see in droves.
Actually, some of the largest stone blocks in the pyramids weigh as much as a house (200 tons), and were brought from as far as 500 miles away – and each pyramid has thousands of such giant blocks… Wow!
And there’s more:
The largest pyramid is taller than 80 grown men, stacked one atop the other. It has remained taller than any man-made building until just 700 years ago. Some people estimate that it took as many as 100,000 workers to complete it over 20 years. The pyramids are so well-made that they have retained their shape perfectly for thousands of years.
BTW: Contrary to popular belief, they were constructed long before the Yaakov and his sons came to Egypt, so there’s no reason to assume they were built by Jewish slaves.
