Pinch Me Places: The Teaching Steps of the Temple

Of all the "pinch me" places the lovely Robin and I have visited over the years, the "teaching steps" of the Temple in Jerusalem, excavated in 1967, are at the top of the list.

These are the steps on which Jesus sat to teach his disciples and other listeners in the crowds who followed him and hung on his words (Luke 19:47-48, for example). It is one of those "pinch me places" in the Holy Land where pilgrims can say, literally, "I walked today where Jesus walked."
