Day 3. Jerusalem

Palace Gate, City of David, Tombs of the Kings, Hezekiah’s Tunnel, Pool of Siloam, Temple Mount, Western Wall Tunnels, the Spirit and Power of Elijah

We search for the palace gate where Elijah sent his letter12 Chronicles 21:12-15 to King Jehoram. At the City of David — ancient heart of Jerusalem — we see the Tombs of the Kings where the people declared, “Don’t bury him here!”22 Chronicles 21:20

Some of us wade through the flowing waters of King Hezekiah’s tunnel32 Chronicles 32, which Jesus called the Pool of Siloam.4John 9:11

On the Temple Mount we examine remains from the time of Jesus. Exploring the Western Wall Tunnels, we see the closest approach to the Holy of Holies, where the angel told Zecharias5Luke 1:11 his wife was about to say, “Honey, we’re pregnant!” And their baby would “go before the Lord in the spirit and power of Elijah.”

At dinner, someone pipes up with, “So, what would you tell an angel who says you’re about to become a daddy?”

In Jerusalem’s Gloria Hotel, we dream of Jesus making mud with his spit, putting it on a man’s eyes, and telling him to wash in the Pool of Siloam.
