Quick post for now.
Today we went on a tour of the ancient city. Not the famous Old City, but the less-known ancient city. I went and examined current archeological dig sites where David’s palace is thought to be. Interestingly, Jerusalem was a cultic place even before the Israelites. An archaeologist showed us depressions made in stone that was carved up to 5000 years ago.
Later, we went into a partially underwater maze system that provided water for the City of David. Really cool, we were shown a stone cave, nestled in between current Arab housing, that is thought to be the actual site of the Last Supper.
And now the pictures…

- Old sewer that perhaps David came up to conquer the city
- Arab neighborhood surrounding the ancient city
- That gnarly-looking stone structure is thought to be the site of the Last Supper
