Our first stop of the day was Gamla. Where Rabbi Scott opened our eyes to how the way of thinking of the zealots who lived there. It is believed that up to 10,000 people occupied this hillside. They were people of obedience that lived life with passion, strength and faithfulness. Due to their strength to stand for what they believed they were targeted by the Romans as a people to destroy completely. In remembering the zealots they were people who were obedient even when their prayers were not answered or not answered the way they wanted.
