The Trip So Far — Part 2
Bet Shean — This is the city where King Saul’s body was hung on the wall by the Philistines.

Jordan River — We visited the region where Jesus was baptized.

En Gedi — A national park in the Judean desert.

Looking from En Gedi out to the Dead Sea

Dead Sea — You really do float!

Masada — One of King Herod’s many palaces. The site of the last stand ofthe Jewish revolt of 70 AD.

Qumran — The Essene community where the Dead Sea scrolls were found.

The Mount of Olives — Stunning view overlooking the Temple Mount!

City of David– The area of Jerusalem settled by King David.

Hezekiah’s Tunnel — walked through one of the tunnels used to provide water to Jerusalem

The Pool of Siloam — My favorite mention of this site is in John 9, where the man born blind washed himself when Jesus healed him.

Yad VaShem — The National Holocaust Memorial

Ended the night with a quick visit to the Western Wall. Very cool to be here at night with no crowds, just sit and watched those who were praying.

Looking down at the Western Wall with the Dome of the Rock looming over it.
