Today we started at the Mount of Olives where Jeff taught about the Triumphal Entry before we walked down to the The Dominus Flevit Chapel, a name meaning "Jesus Wept", the traditional site where Jesus contemplated the city of Jerusalem and its destruction. From there we walked down to the Church of All Nations for mass after walking through the Garden of Gethsemane. Then we crossed the Kidron Valley, to Mt. Zion to visit the Upper Room. We toured modern Israel, visiting the Israel Museum, which houses a fascinating model of 1st Century Jerusalem, and Shrine of the Book, home of the Dead Sea Scrolls. After dinner, JoAnn Magnuson gave a presentation on the history of modern Israel.
