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.
