Cedar

.

Curzon says that Solomon cut down a cedar, and buried it on the spot where the pool of Bethesʹda used to stand. A few days before the crucifixion, this cedar floated to the surface of the pool, and was employed as the upright of the Saviour’s cross. (Monasteries of the Levant.) (See Cross.)
