We took an end of the school year field trip this week to the Holy Land Experience in Orlando. Once you get past all the cheesy parts, there are some good things. Brendan and I have been studying ancient history, so I wanted him to see the Jerusalem model and the Tabernacle. It's great to get a visual on what we see in the textbook. We also visited the Scriptorium and got to see a collection of Bibles dating from the B.C.'s until the present time. It was incredible to hear the stories of the godly, courageous men who gave their lives so we can read our Bibles today. We were struck at one of the Bibles that had the blood of the martyr who owned it on the pages-someone who died for owning the earliest version (Tyndale's) of the English Bible. Made us examine ourselves: what are we willing to do for the sake of the gospel?
On a lighter note, they had a kid's section of the park where we played a bit. Brendan got to try rock climbing for the first time and did a great job. Here's just a few pics from our day:
