Israel, Day 6

MASADA, DEAD SEA SCROLLS and The DEAD SEA! This was a full day. I enjoyed learning more about Masada…you should google it and read about what happened there if you don’t know. Very interesting!
Masada is located in the wilderness of Judea about 2 and a half miles from the western shore of The Dead Sea and about 15 miles north of Sodom. It was the location of one of three of Herod’s fortress cities and later it became the place where Jewish zealots went to escape Roman persecution. You will have to read about it to find out what happened to the 960 Jews!
On our way….

What a fun day we had! Not only did we enjoy the trip itself, but we made some great friends. This was a fun bunch! I’m so glad the Lord allowed our paths to cross!
More of Jerusalem tomorrow!
