Golgotha: Where Jesus Died

When Karla and I were in Israel in 2011 I snapped this shot of one of the two possible sites near where Jesus was crucified.  Matthew 27:33-34 says “And when they came to a place called Golgotha (which means Place of a Skull) they offered him wine to drink mixed with gall, but when he had tasted it, he would not drink it.”

Petra

Here are some pictures I took at the ancient city of Petra (which means rock)┬áin Jordan when Karla and I had the opportunity to visit Israel and the surrounding areas in 2011. We were captivated by the colorful cloth and the reddish rocks….and this beautiful hidden city in the midst of a desolate climate.
