City of David, Jerusalem

Jeff and I met Peggy P at the City of David, Jerusalem. We had a fascinating time climbing over the remains of David’s Palace and learning the history of the City of David. We walked at least 1/3 of a mile through the old underground water system that carried the water from Gihon Spring (outside the old city walls) into the city of Jerusalem. These tunnels and drainage canals are at least 2000 years old, and are still functional. The pool of Shiloah (Siloam) was recorded in 2 Kings 20:20, “The other events of Hezekiah’s reign, and all his exploits, and how he made the pool and the conduit and brought the water into the city of Jerusalem are recorded….” Second Temple sources mention the Shiloah Pool in regard to Temple ceremonies, “How was the Water Libation performed? The priest would fill a golden flask holding 3 logs (a liquid measure) with water from Shiloah…(Mishnah Sukkah 4:9).

Jerusalem…the city of the King!!

Our City of Beer Sheva

Shalom everyone!
Sue and I pray that all of you around the world are doing well, growing closer to The Lord, and walking more in the purpose He created you for.
Each of you are unique and special in the eyes and heart of God.

Many of you I’m sure, have wondered what this desert city of Beer Sheva is
really like. The thought of a desert town elicits images of something out of the old west or the Australian out back. To give you all a realistic view, we have posted this video link to show some of our cities beauty and culture.
Blessings to All,
Jeff & Sue
