    Jerusalem

    After having mass at the Shepherd’s field we then visited the Israel Museum. Here we viewed the model of Old Jerusalem which was absolutely amazing. Our tour guide explained how Jerusalem has changed over time and used the model to allow us to visualise this. We then went and viewed the Dead Sea Scrolls which were found in a cave in Qumran by some shepherds. These were the first recorded written text of the Old Testament. This was such a historically rich place where I learnt so much about the history of this wonderful place.Read more
