Israel Trip 2014: Day 4

Day 4 began with a visit to the Garden Tomb, where a volunteer guide explained to us why many Christians think that this might have been the site of the resurrection of Jesus (again, see photos from last year under ‘Travel’ on my blog).

It was very moving to hear different groups of Christians singing about Jesus rising from the dead as they visited the empty tomb or shared communion together.

Next we visited the Davidson Center (the 2nd temple period adjacent to the Temple Mount) – another fascinating visit with lots to learn.

From there, we went on to the Israel Museum, which houses both the Shrine of the Book and a model of Jerusalem.

The day ended with a visit to the Machane Yehuda open market – as Jews were getting ready for the sabbath which was about to start, the market was a complete sensory experience of sights, sounds and tastes.
