    Day 1: Morning

    May 19, 2015 in Palestine ⋅ ☀️ 70 °F

    Tozer taught that the teachings of Jesus were so deeply disturbing to the "natural mind" because it takes from sinful men, the power of self-determination. "It cuts the ground out from under their self-help and throws them back upon the sovereign good pleasure of God-and that is precisely where they do not want to be." I'm sitting here right outside of the old wall looking out over the city. This is said to be the site of the new Mt. Zion. I have to wait to get started to figure out exactly what that means, but suffice it to say everything just seems so normal. Cars honking, chain smokers, brakes squealing. Nothing "supernatural" here. Just a regular old city.

    Yet here I am in the place where the unnatural became natural. And I can see how easily that would get lost in puffs of exhaust from tired out old cars.

    South of the Old City

    December 8, 2018 in Palestine ⋅ 🌧 9 °C

    The streets were crowded so we looped around the south walls of the Old City. It was well worth the walk! Connecting the Jaffa, Zion, and Dung Gates, through the Armenian Quarter, and taking in views of the Dome of the Rock, Tower of David, City of David, and West Wall.

    Church of Saint Peter in Gallicantu

    May 14 in Palestine ⋅ ☀️ 90 °F

    Church of Saint Peter in Gallicantu is a Roman Catholic church located on the eastern slope of Mount Zion, just outside the Old (walled) City of Jerusalem. This spot is also believed to be the location of the High Priest Caiaphas' palace.

    The church takes its name from the Latin word "Gallicantu", meaning cock's-crow. This is in commemoration of Peter's triple rejection of Jesus "... before the cock crows twice." Matthew 26:69-75.Read more

    Day 8 – Tuesday, May 14, 2019

    May 14 in Palestine ⋅ ☀️ 88 °F

    Western Wall Tunnel, Jesus' Steps, the Last Days, Pentecost
    We start our day at the fascinating Western Wall Tunnel leading us through the Second Temple era. We move on to the Judgment Hall of Pilate, hear of those who conspired against Him and are reminded of His brutal beating and humiliation. On our way into the city we will visit the Wailing Wall and the Southern Wall Excavations. This southern side of The Temple was the main entrance for the common folk, whereas the Priests and Levites had their own entrance from the higher eastern side. Parts of the giant stairs, which led to the Temple Mount from the courtyard have been unearthed along with the purification pools. From here Jesus entered the Temple Mount and drove out the vendors and money exchangers who were exploiting the people. It is also likely that this is the place that Peter stood and preached and where thousands were saved and baptized on the Day of Pentecost. We will enjoy a challenge from God’s Word and a song. Next we visit the House of Caiaphas where Jesus was beaten and spit upon. See a pit where he may have been held for the evening and the ancient hillside steps he walked as he was taken to be condemned. Passing by the Protestant Cemetery, we visit the "Upper Room" just outside the Zion Gate where the disciple whom Jesus loved laid his head on His breast and where later Thomas cried, "my Lord & my God." This evening we will travel outside of Jerusalem to Yad Hashmona a Messianic Moshave for a biblical meal.Read more
