Galilee
If I had to pick one place to stay for the rest of eternity....it might be Galilee. Our first stop was Mount Arbel. From the top, you could look out at the entire Sea of Galilee, Capernaum, Magdala, and Tiberias. I sat there in silence listening to my New T...

Biblical Zoos and "the Old Shool House"
Usually
I’m not a huge zoo person. You’ve seen one, you’ve seen ‘em all, right? But
when a bunch of my JC crew decided to go to a zoo here in Israel, I couldn’t
resist jumping in. It doesn’t take much to twist my arm for fun. I enjoyed hanging out with a ne...

Jordan
Oh Jordan! So many sites...four full days
of touring. I came back completely drained of all energy, but I guess that’s
the mark of a good trip, right? I really enjoyed my time in Jordan, and I
learned so much. It didn’t exactly hurt that we were treated lik...

Making bitter into sweet
What a day! The Jerusalem Center has students go through the experience of making olive oil. This has really been a special morning. Our Ancient Near East professor, Brother Seely (who happens to be a celebrity here--so funny), gave a wonderful mini devotio...

Istanbul (...not Constantinople)
Seriously, I've had the song by They Might Be Giants stuck
in my head for two weeks. Thank you Brother Seely! I was able to be in one city
that spanned two continents! I've officially been in Europe as well as Asia! I
am feeling quite accomplished. :) We to...

Petra!
We spent a full day in Petra, and it
could have quite possibly been one of the greatest days. Ever. Petra has been
voted one of the seven new wonders of the ancient world, as well it should be! I
was devastated that I had forgotten my camera battery, but lu...

Because Bethlehem is in the West Bank, we are only allowed to come here as a group once. So I can't emphasize enough that this was a pretty big day. Interestingly enough, we started off the day not by going to Bethlehem, but ...
