Destination: Jerusalem

Flashback to fall 2012, when our theology class went on a field trip TO ISRAEL. It was awesome - part academic, part pilgrimage, part adventuring through three countries (Israel, Palestine, and Syria, which was partly occupied by Israel). However, I'm a bit rusty on the details of specific stories, so this will mostly be a photo collection.

40% of the Israel crew.

Dominus Flevit, providigin a view from the Mount of Olives directly looking over the Temple Mount

Church of the Holy Sepulchre. Armenian ladder + Greek orthodox cornice = status quo 

Market in old Jerusalem
