This location is the heartbeat of Jerusalem; one of incredible significance for Jews, Muslims, and Christians. It's the place where Abraham went to sacrifice his son who Jews and Christians believe was Isaac and Muslims believe was Ishmael. Today Mt. Moriah is known as the Dome of the Rock but historically, especially for the Jew, as the Temple Mount.
Groups usually get 2-3 days to see everything we saw today and we saw a few extra sites on top of that. Lots of walking in this 140hour day but fun was had by all. We went to amazing sites and heard great lessons gleaning from Geoff's wealth of knowledge from the history, culture, archaeology, and geography of the time of the Bible. It was a GREAT day to be in Jerusalem.
Our day ended with a fantastic meal at the Tent Restaurant where we dined in high mid-east fashion learning about the blessing for bread and wine in Jesus day, and Passover. The boys are now full, happy, and sound asleep. They'll need the rest for tomorrow's journey through the wilderness.
