Day 8 – Jerusalem – Up, Down, East and West, above and below we see the City.

Day 8 and we finally have what Israelites pray for daily - more rain. At 8:00 we headed for the Pool of Shiloam at the lower end of the City of David at the output of Hezekiah’s Water Tunnel. Here the Christ made the blind man see as he washed the mud from his eyes at this still flowing spring. We were reminded that blindness in life can permeate our spiritual journey –may we have the eyes to see and avoid the darkness.

From the bottom, we made our way through heavy traffic to the top of King David’s City Palace. Here we could see the Old Testament story in 3D of David and Bathsheba. In the Holy Land the scriptures come to a new realization.

Day 7 - The Palm Sunday Road, Garden of Gethsemane, Bethlehem, Church of the Nativity, Shepherds Field.

After a great night of cool breezes and some of our group taking walks around the city area in the heart of Jerusalem, we left the Dan Hotel at 8:15 a.m. and headed to the top of the Mount of Olives for the start of our 8th day. There we read about our Lord Jesus as he made his triumphant entry into Jerusalem the week of his Passion. We walked this same route which brought us to the Garden of Gethsemane. There we visited the Church of the Nations and witnessed an active service with Communion. In this church is the rock upon which Jesus stood as he prayed, "not my will, but thy will be done".
