Back in Class

Well, classes started up again. So far, so good. I'm taking a counseling class called Social and Cultural Foundations, and a bible class called Epistles, where we'll be studying Acts through Galatians. It looks like the classes should be pretty interesting. My favorite thing about the bible class is that the professor has been to Israel several times, and as we read through the bible, he shows pictures of places I've been! It's pretty neat. So I decided to share some examples with you. :)

Acts 1:5 - for John baptized with water
Me getting baptized in the Jordan (where John baptized)

Acts 1:12 - Then they returned to Jerusalem from the mount called Olivet
A garden on the Mount of Olives

Acts 1:13 - When they had entered the city, they went up to the upper room

The upper room

Acts 3:1 - Now Peter and John were going up to the temple at the ninth hour, the hour of prayer.

The wailing wall (where the temple was before its destruction)

Acts 9:43 - And Peter stayed many days in Joppa with a tanner named Simon

Simon the Tanner's house

Acts 10:1 - Now there was a man at Caesarea named Cornelius, a centurion of what was called the Italian cohort.

The hippodrome at Caesarea

Acts 12:19 - Then he went down from Judea to Caesarea and spent time there.

The theater at Caesarea, where Peter preached (and Paul, too)

Pretty fun, huh? I may post more later. So... school is good. :)
