We started out the day at the southern steps of the old city Jerusalem. Here we had praise and worship and a study from pastor Chuck.
This is a 1 to 50 scale model of the old city Jerusalem including the Temple mount area in front. It really helped to see how things were in the Bible days.
Next door to the model scale of Jersalem is the Dead Sea scroll museum. The top of the museum is designed to look like the lid of a clay pot. Clay jars housed the Dead Sea scrolls for centuries until they were discovered in 1947 in Qumran by the Dead Sea.
(Isa 40:8) The grass withers, the flower fades, But the word of our God stands forever."
(Isa 40:1) "Comfort, yes, comfort My people!" Says your God.
Pastor Chuck teaching the book of Ruth with Bethlehem in the background. We even sang Christmas carols!
(Micah 5:2) "But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, Though you are little among the thousands of Judah, Yet out of you shall come forth to Me The One to be Ruler in Israel, Whose goings forth are from of old, From everlasting."
