Shrine of the book – Qumran scrolls/fragments displayed inside. I saw fragments from Isaiah and Habakkuk. Qumran Cave 1 storage jar Model of the Second Temple looking down from the Mount of Olives on to the east wall Model of the second temple viewing east wall Looking toward the south wall of the temple model Looking toward the southwest corner of the model Grain storage jar from the Jordan valley Beersheba pottery – butter churn – ropes used to rock back and forth 7th-8th century oil lamps discovered at Tiberias The original holy of holies from the Arad fortress. We saw a replica of this on Day 11. This is the original. A good friend of Jerusalem University College (where we are doing our short term course) has a shop. This is where we exchange currency. He was trying to sell me this clothing item. I didn’t buy it. Just doesn’t quite fit my life in Iowa! Ha!
