Visited Promenade to get expansive “aerial” view of Jerusalem where I gave a 20-minute overview of all of Salvation History.

Then to Abby of the Dormitian, the Upper Room and St. Peter in Gallicantu where Jesus was imprisoned over Holy Thursday night and where Peter denied Jesus. We had dinner at the hotel.

Bethlehem Part II, Tuesday

by Steve Ray on June 10, 2010

Part II of our full Bethlehem Day. We finished by going to Hebron to see the tomb of Abraham & Sarah, Isaac & Rebecca, Jacob and Leah in the Machpelah. It was very special to see the city of the Patriarchs and where King David began to be king.

We then had a festive dinner in Bethlehem where we ate stuffed lamb with Palestinian rice and many other fine foods and wine. Then we danced!
