Isaiah


So guess who hung out with the Dead Sea scrolls today? Oh yeah that would be me. The second longest scroll is the Great Isaiah Scroll and it was on display at the Israel Museum in the exhibit "book of the shrine." The exhibit is in that dome thing above underground. The shape of the dome is the same shape as the lid of the pot they found the first scroll in- pretty cool. I tried to look for a photo of the pot but google is just bringing up other people's blogs and their trips to the Holy Land. Anyway it was pretty awesome and I finally spent money on souvenirs I would love- postcards! I got about 15 at the museum gift shop- so Melissa you'll want to see them and Em- you should be proud that I am spending money. Time to eat! Lots of love to the US of A.
