Pilgrimage with Fr. Shane: Masada Day
by Steve Ray on May 17, 2009
At the beginning of this video I forgot to explain, in the video, what the first pictures are all about 🙁 They are pictures of my run in the morning before the group got up. I took off from our hotel in Jericho and ran out into the Judean Wilderness to the Highway 1. It was very near the place John the Baptist baptized Jesus and the road up to Jerusalem (Parable of the Good Samaritan).
The fun part was running through the Palestinian and later the Israeli checkpoints. I had to stop and show them my passport. The Israeli soidiers would not let me take their pictures but the Palestinian did. It was hard to take the pictures myself with my iPhone which is why they look a little goofy. Enjoy!
