Behind the Golden Gate

Today’s featured photo takes us behind Jerusalem’s Golden Gate.

You will remember that the Golden Gate is on the eastern wall. Our photo give you a perspective from atop the temple mount viewing the west side of the Golden Gate area.

Currently this is the location of a Muslim girl’s school.

Some make the suggestion that this would be the site of the Gate Beautiful mentioned in Acts 3:2:

And a man lame from birth was being carried up, who was placed at the temple gate called “the Beautiful Gate” every day so he could beg for money from those going into the temple courts (NET Bible).

On a personal note, this week I am privileged to be part of Gary Fisher’s Indiana Bible Camp,┬áStudents range from age 13 to 19. I’m teaching a Visualized Survey of the Bible, its history and geography, from Genesis to Revelation, making use of photos of Bible places as we narrate the text.

Below is a photo from tonight’s assembly, with Jon Babcock speaking.
