DOME OF THE ROCK (Site of Solomon and Herod's temples) posteds 3/9

     This site in old testament was wHere Solomon build the temple to the Lord.

     Later after the Babylon exile of Israel they destroyed the temple. After they came home Cyrus of Persia let them rebuild the Temple on the same site. Then the Romans destroyed the Temple and after the Muslin's conquered the area and built Mosques on this Holy site, The Crusaders came in and built churches on the site, but did not destroy the mosque. After they left the Muslims moved back in and built this Dome of The Rock on top of the previous Holy sites. It had a copper roof, later they added the gold leaf to the roof.

JORDAN RIVER (posted 3/8)

     Went to the Jordan River to where Jesus was baptized. Had to travel thru a military zone from West Bank to Jordan to view the site.

     You can see they have land mines buried with barbed wire everywhere.
     Dr. Rast, President of Ft. Wayne Seminary and Pastor Janssen led us in prayer and singing at the river. This spot is where Jesus was baptized by John.
