Day 10 - Jordan: Jerash

posted on Friday March 24 2023 at 12:00 am UTC

It's a LOT to take in! Coming into this trip we were told that Jerash was big. You can hear that all you want, you can see pictures, you can do a Google earth flyover and locate things but nothing can really prepare you for how big this ancient Roman city really is! A good principle used by scholars...

Day 09 - Jordan: Petra

Petra. Not the band. Not the restaurant off of 380 near Custer. Nope, the real one. The first one. The most awe-inspiring one. If you told me I could only use one word to describe Petra I would rebel and use as many I needed to, but if I had to choose one to succinctly describe what I experienced...

Day 08 - Jordan: Allenby Bridge Border Crossing , Baptismal Site, Mount Nebo, Dead Sea

posted on Tuesday March 21 2023 at 8:00 pm UTC

We picked up a new traveler today. He was standing there on the sidewalk as we passed by after crossing into Jordan and it looked like he might be a great addition to our group so we opened the door and let in Pastor Wayne. Okay, that was always the plan! Pastor Wayne has joined us in Jordan to teach...

posted on Sunday March 19 2023 at 8:00 pm UTC

You will find a blend of cultures unlike anywhere else in the world on top of the Temple Mount. Our guide, Dan, was incredibly helpful in explaining the complex relationships that are at play in this small area. Suffice it to say tension is always there, but there is also peace. There are two places...

"Wow!" "Oh my!" "Hello!"   I am sure there are other phrases people spoke as they came up the steps and peered over the wall at the old city of Jerusalem for the first time. It's impossible to put the scene into words when you see it for the first time, but we're getting accustomed to saying...

Day 04 - Negev: Beth Shean, Ein Gedi, Qumran

posted on Friday March 17 2023 at 9:00 pm UTC

Dead Sea Day!  We descended from the Hights of Golan to the lowest (breathable) spot on our great planet earth today, but before we did, we stopped at a little place called Beth Shean. But do not be deceived, it's some mere kiddy park that we could have easily skipped and not really missed. Au contraire,...
