After we arrived in Tel Aviv on Thursday morning, we traveled toward Jerusalem, stopping at various museums, including one with a scale model of the city in the Second Century, complete with the Herodian temple. We also went to a museum with relics from throughout history helping demonstrate the way life changed throughout the Bible lands.
We had the opportunity to stop on the Mount of Olives, where Jesus ascended back to heaven. The view of the old city from the Mount of Olives is breathtaking.
The highlight of the day for me, though, was a walk through the old city at night, where a few friends and I ended up at the Western Wall and spent time in prayer alongside Hasidic Jews, Christians, and other visitors.
This is truly a trip every Christian should make in their lifetime!
