Tour Day Seven, Jan 16

St Anne’s Basilica & the Pools of Bethesda, Southern Steps of Temple Mount, Mt Zion, Caiaphas’ house  ~  This morning we started out at the Church of St. Anne where the acoustics make songs echo beautifully. From there we made our way to the Southern Steps of the Temple Mount and Jeff gave a teaching about the Jesus writing in the dust. We visited the Western Wall and walked through parts of the Old City of Jerusalem before exiting through the Dung Gate to Mt Zion for Mass at the church that recalls Peter’s denial on the night Jesus was betrayed, St. Peter in Gallicantu (Matthew 26:69-75.) The church is built over the High Priest Caiaphas’ home (Matthew 26:57,) where Jesus was held that same night.
