I will now look at my study of...

The City of David, Hezekiah’s Tunnel, the Mount of Olives! Wow, what an incredible experience we had today. It is amazing that the people of those times had such engineering talent to be able to start at both ends of such a long tunnel and chisel their way to a meeting point underneath the city.    Then...

BETH SHEAN (alternative spelling Bét She’an) We kicked off today with one of the most impressive sites! A town in most of its Roman/pre-Roman glory. There aren’t words to describe the feeling of looking down upon the town in all of its fallen beauty. Samuel 31 references what happened...

We started this day visiting Ein Gedi. A short distance down the road we came to Qumran. As we traveled north we pulled into an area of the Lower Jordan, where tradition holds as the place Jesus was baptized. This trip brings many thoughts and feelings to life. For me the same big picture idea keeps...

There’s nothing like standing at the top of the world. While Masada is not the top of the world, it definitely felt like it! Our morning bus ride took us from hundreds of meters below sea level, through the mountains and to Masada. Located in southern Israel and surrounded by the desert, this cliff...
