After breakfast you will begin your day with joining the Temple Mount Sifting Project for a couple of hours duration. Then you will walk to the Ophel and examine the ruins near the south side of the Temple complex, including steps where you may be certain that Jesus and the disciples walked. You may then descend the slope of the first Jerusalem (“City of David”) to the Gihon spring and proceed through Hezekiah’s tunnel, which led the water to a pool where city dwellers of old were safe from the Assyrian arrows. At the Pool of Siloam, John 9 records the healing of the blind man by putting mud on his eyes and asking him to wash them away. You will then drive to the Shrine of the Book, which houses the Dead Sea Scrolls, and the Israel Museum, including the outdoor model of Jerusalem as the city may have looked in 66 AD. Return to your hotel for dinner. This evening we have a special treat, walking through underground tunnels to see the remnants of the Temple Mount of Jesus' day that enables us to examine the length of the outer Herodian Temple wall, mostly preserved in mint condition, including two stone blocks each weighing about 600 tons. Return back to the hotel for the overnight.
