Israel, part 2

Some more pictures from Israel...
At the Pool of Bethesda. This is where a lame man was healed by Jesus (see John 5:1-14).
At the Garden of Gethsemane. These are olive trees. There was originally a olive oil press in this area. This remindes us that Jesus was crushed for our sins (Isaiah 53:5).
Me with the Old City of Jerusalem in the background.
The Old City in the background with the Domoe of the Rock in the center. This is where the Jewish temple was and also where Abraham offered to sacrifice Isaac.
The ruins at Bet' Shean. This was a Roman/Byzantine city that we were able to tour.
