The Significance of Sacrifices
Who cares about sacrifices in the Old Testament? We as Christians live by the New Testament! But have you ever tried to read through Leviticus? Would it be easier if you could envision patterns instead of repetition? Would you relate with it if you envisioned the quandary of a conscientious Jew in light of the Pharisees’ hypocrisy, the ceremonial laws as the Old Testament requires, and Jesus’ teachings? Would you appreciate it better if you understood how Jesus perfectly fulfilled ALL the law on our behalf? Or even if you envisioned better what it was like to have to sacrifice animals?
The Significance for our Lives
We all could benefit more from the discipline of thankfulness, but how can we be thankful for things we never experienced or even considered? And how can we consider if we can’t comprehend? Wouldn’t this alone make the exercise of exploring the sacrifices worth the effort? This database, Lord willing, will address this need in years to come.
This is a heel bone that was discovered with a bent nail in it which made the nail very difficult to remove. It belonged to Yehohanan ben Hagkol, which was marked in Hebrew on the ossuary, and he was crucified somewhere between 4 B.C. and 70 A.D.

My Focus in Blogging
My story of forgiveness and healing is quite unrelated to envisioning the Bible world. But since our world is sin and pain infested, I suspect many will want to hear more about my personal experience. I wrote a couple of blogs about this, but mostly I focused on envisioning the Bible world. I learned lots after being in Israel, and now I can share that with you.
Plans for Improved Website:
Now that my documentary links are all moved under the Tour Israel menu heading, I’ll see if I can get my website working better for the visually impaired. This requires a lot of work and my student may be too busy with other technical fixes. I’ll see what I can get done by the end of May, 2023.
Thanks for your interest.
