Wednesday seeing the city

We started the day with having a Communion worship service at the Garden Tomb. It was a beautiful place. It was a nice place to visualize where Jesus was crucified and buried. 99% sure this is not the actual place, they think it should have been where the Church of the Holy Sepluchre.

We then went to the Holocaust Museum, Yad Vashem. We only spent about 2 hours there, and boy we could have spent more time there.

We then went to the Israel Museum. Here we saw the Model City and the Dead Sea Scrolls. The Model City is a huge model of Jerusalem from Jesus' time. The Dead Sea Scrolls exhibit, The Shrine of the Book, showed artifacts fromthe sight where the scrolls were found. The exhibit had apart of the actual scroll of Isaiah.

It was hot yesterday. It is supposed to be the same today. Today is our last day here, please pray for safety as today is a free day.
