Early morning at the Garden Tomb, before opening its doors to the hundreds of international pilgrims who find solace here. The guides make a strong case for this being the likely site of Yeshua’s tomb. We do know that the site is not as important as the event… the tomb is empty! He is risen and that means hope to all. He is the Messiah of the Jewish people and the Savior of the world. Son of God AND greater son of David…
We hosted 96 pilgrims here last week and our communion service ended the tour. The anointing of the Lord was powerful and made for a perfect day. We began at the Holocaust Museum (Yad VaShem) experiencing the depths of human depravity and closed the day with worship and communion here in the garden. One young man rededicated his life to the Lord. Another man was baptized for the first time. Israel awakens the deepest longing and points to the One who satisfies that longing in our hearts.
