Day 10: Having a blast....

Some pictures from the day:

My friend Vaughn and me riding a camel on the Mt. of Olives, this would be painful for a long distance trip.

Genesis 22:4 tells us that Abraham lifted up his eyes and saw the place where to sacrifice Issac from afar, Mt. Moriah. This is the view that he had of Jerusalem in this verse. The Dome of the Rock marks the place. My original view of Jerusalem was also from this spot on night 7.

2,000 year old olive tree in Gethsemane where Jesus prays for one hour before going to the cross.

Visited the tomb today, but no on was home. He is Risen indeed!!!

The Eastern Gate is on the right. When Jesus comes again he will enter this gate, which has always been closed. Tony Merida believes He will then go and kick off the Dome of the Rock like a football. It'll be game time for the conquering King of Kings!
Jesus' death on a cross defeated evil.
