Still More Mount Zion and More

Our last stop of Saturday morning was at the grave of Oskar Schindler, the subject of the book, and movie, Schindler's List:

Chris Retz, one of our group, talked passionately about Schindler, and about Christians' relationship to Jews and Israel.

After lunch at Ramat Rachel, we drove to the Garden Tomb, where we saw "Gordon's Calvary"...

....and the Garden Tomb, a wonderful place to visualize the crucifixion, burial, and resurrection of our Lord:

After a sweet time of worship (we sang "In the Garden" and "He Lives," read Luke 24:1-9, and shared communion), our bus driver took us to Jaffa Gate, where some of us commenced the Ramparts Walk on the wall of Jerusalem from Jaffa Gate to New Gate:

A twenty minute walk from the New Gate, and we were back at our hotel!

A full, sweet day, and still there is dinner and a lecture entitled "Jerusalem in the Time of Jesus!"

Tomorrow we rise early and set out for Caesarea, Megiddo, Nazareth, Cana...and our hotel by the Sea of Galilee!
