A Taste of Honey- Day 2

Joppa, Day 1. The place Peter saw the vision of the sheet of unclean animals, leading to the first Gentile convert.
View from Gezer, Day 1. It overlooks the Aijalon Valley, where the sun stood still during the conquest of the land in Joshua’s day.

Hike up to Azekah. It was fairly intense at several places, and we had our first test of working together to get us all to the top. Azekah overlooks the Elah Valley, where David defeated Goliath.

Day 2

Our first stop of the day was at Bet Shemesh, where we discussed the life and story of Samson. The return of the Ark of the covenant on the cart led by two cows also took place in this area.
