Pilgrimage Day 7 in Two Exciting, Fun Parts

by Steve Ray on April 29, 2012

Mass at the stone where Jesus sweat drops of blood in Gethsemane.

Israel Museum to see model of the Temple from Jesus’ time and the Dead Sea Scroll Museum.

Visited authentic Baptismal Site of Jesus to renew our baptismal vows before lunch in Jericho.

Then to Qumran to see the ruins and the famous Cave No. 4. We discussed Scripture, Dead Sea Scrolls, ran and the Essenes.

The day rounded out with a swim in the Dead Sea and camel rides and back for dinner and a free evening.

Part I:

Part II:
