Israel Museum & The Knesset

On Sunday we went back to Jerusalem to see the Israel Museum, which included the Shrine of the Book.  It included history, fragments and replicas of the Dead Sea Scrolls.  Fascinating, but picture-taking wasn’t allowed.  In the rest of the museum, there was all kinds of ancient artifacts, including weapons, which of course, really got Neal’s attention.  So we have  a lot of pictures of ancient swords, daggers, knives and spears.

The script below was an interesting document on the wall in the museum near some sarcophagi from the time of Yeshua.

Below is a ceiling of an old synagogue, someone in Germany was using for a barn.  It was taken apart and reconstructed at the museum.
