It was the year 2013, during the month of October, when a teacher at the school where I used to work told me that they were planning a trip to the Holy Land, for a week. The 2013 was a very challenging and life changing year for me, taking during its course many of the decisions that have deeply marked the second part of my existence and beyond. The preparation for this journey to Jerusalem, which took place in February 2014, was probably one of them. I did enjoy visiting Israel and Palestine, together with a group of 12 other people, all catholic. I was the only one who visited the Dome of the Rock

The picture below is me. At the back, the Dome of the Rock where inside there is the bedrock that supported the Jewish Temple destroyed by the Romans in 70 ad, below me, under my feet, the Holy of Holies, the cave where Jews pray just like on the Western Wall. Around me the area where Jesus must have walked in and out of the Temple since his childhood, when visiting Jerusalem for Passover and such. Above me....just peaceful blue sky

 

This was the itinerary of the trip:

 

Jerusalem, day 1

Needless to say, it is a city full of History. I read the book "Jerusalem: The Biography"  by Simon Sebag Montefiore (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jerusalem:_The_Biography), a superb reading that without any doubt allowed me to enjoy the city visit more and appreciate what I was seeing. Having said that, I did not like Jerusalem, not the historic center that I saw. All the houses, all the roads, all the ceilings were made of stone, wood was nowhere to be found. I saw people of all different sort of religions without love from one another, all the streets that I saw had been splashed with innocent blood in the past. To me, Jerusalem is not the glorious city where you redeem your sins or where you have a spiritual makeover, etc. I had the impression at the end of my couple of days visit that Jerusalem was just the place that Jesus chose to die. Though nobody can't denied its ample past, the city itself does not seem to be welcoming anyone or anything in a positive light, it is just a pile of stones where some day someone just got killed

Our Hotel (Panorama Hotel) was on the East side of the city, from where we could see the famous Golden Gate. In the morning of the first day we enter the city by Lion's Gate, walked across the Via Dolorosa and spent quite a bit of time inside the most strange building I've ever visited on my whole life: the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, with a hill inside, underground chambers and intricate chapels all over the place, it looks like an spaghetti of different architectures through the ages. Then we visited the Tower of David, the King David's Tomb and a walked all around the old city until we reached the Notre Dame of Jerusalem Center, where we ended up the day having good coffee. I am a devoted of the Holy Shroud, and back in 2010 I went with my girlfriend at the time (Mercedes) to Turin to see the exposition that happened back then. And guess what? In the Notre Dame Hotel they just happens to have a museum of it, with a 3D representation of the image of the Shroud... coincidence?

Just before we headed back to the Hotel, one of the member of the party (Daniel, from Poland) played the organ at Notre Dame very beautifully, he indeed got lot of talent!

 

Jerusalem, day 2 and 3

Early morning on the second day we left the Hotel in Jerusalem and packed a mini-bus full of other local people that were going to Palestine too, for work I suppose. Entering Palestine was no problem at all, the drive was smooth and on the check point between the countries we just passed right through. We spent the day in Bethlehem, in the Church of the Nativity and its surroundings. The entrance to the Church is very narrow, and you have to literally bend yourself over to enter. They did that on purpose, to prevent horses from coming into the Church and in a way preserving it to our days and prevent spoil and pillage when in times of war and/or invasion.

I saw the Israeli West Bank Barrier, disgraceful construction really. The concrete as a symbol of the selfish human beings. Funny to think that towards God there are crying on a wall, while towards their countrymen the build a divisive wall. On our way back to Jerusalem, our mini-bus was stopped by Israeli Police and two younger girls, in their early twenties, came inside our mini-bus. They were pretty hot, and their uniform was tight. Being so young, they had a lovely figure, and they wore cute sunglasses and each one of them have their Uzi pistol kind of loose of their holster. They hand-picked a few of the Palestinian that were travelling with us in the mini-bus, all of them of the very same age as them, and took them out for a 20' chat. It happens one of the Palestinian that was taken out was sitting right next to me. When he finally came back I asked him what has happened, why the Police has to question him for so long, and with a broken voice he told me: "Every day, every day like this", stopped for 20' on this way to work by pretty young Israeli soldiers

It was just after the sunrise of the second day, before we head out to Bethlehem that I sneaked out from the group and visited the Dome of the Rock, Al-Aqsa Mosque, on my own

 

Masada

One summer, back in the 80s, when I was a child, I suffered a strong fever of some sort, and remember being sick yet still watching a mini-TV Series called "Masada", starring among other actors with Peter O'Toole. Maybe because of the fever of whatever, but the thing is that I felt a strange and strong fascination with the rock of Masada ever since, the last stand the Jews did against the Romans back in the revolt of 73 AD, and when this journey gave me the opportunity to step into Masada.... that was literally a dream of a lifetime that came true. I always dreamt of visiting this place. The uprising of the Jews in 73 AD was predicted by Jesus, 40 years earlier at the time of his death. During the revolt, the Jews population was decimated and Jerusalem was lost forever to the Jews, and has never been truly theirs ever since (and probably won't be until the end of time). Masada is a magnificent natural fortress, no army would have never defeat unless.... of course, that army happens to be the Roman 10th Legion, a formidable enemy and the only one with enough determination to conquer Masada. Yet.... the Jews had the last word: no man would be capture alive. This short video shows what happened at Masada in 73 AD: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=11iPrDv8aBE

 

Right after the visit to the Fortress, we drove to the Ein Gedi and bath in the Dead Sea

 

 

I was not allowed to carry the camera into the beach, so have very little pictures of that swim in the Dead Sea, but I can tell you the following:

  • There is SALT all over the place, the beaches are made of pure salt instead of sand, so wear proper footwear otherwise your feet will bleed to death
  • Do not swim on the Dead Sea, if you splash a lot you can potentially get water into your eyes, and if that happens that's end of the game: there is no fresh water around to remove the salt from your eyes
  • Yes, you do float indeed, but you have to stay still and with your legs and arms extended. It is really difficult to "flip over", so if you are floating with the your head up after a while the sun burns your face (the salt crystals on the water act as a magnifying glass), and if you 'swim' with your head down, it is only so much that your neck can maintain your head up, so please keep close to the shore otherwise you might actually die of exhaustion if you dare to adventure in the open sea
  • Try this when you are at the Dead Sea, this is amazing: go the sea up to your knees , then wash your hands in the Dead Sea with the eyes closes, and see the feeling! The water is so rich in minerals that it feels like oil!

 

Tiberias, day 1

In our fifth day we drove all the way up along the 90 motorway, following the river Jordan up to its birth place at the foot of the Sea of Galilee. As we were going up north, the scenery was changing gradually but dramatically to a much beautiful landscape, greener lands and lighter vibrations.... yes! That area around the Sea of Galilee is absolutely stunning, no wonder he chose that part of this Universe to arrive on this planet, way much nicer than Jerusalem and its desserts around it. I highly recommend to visit "Magdala", an archaeological site dated from the time of Jesus Christ where, after the built a Church, they discovered an ancient road date from the 1st century, a road which Jesus must have walked as he roamed the area often

 

 

This was the trip road that we did on that day. When we stopped at Yardenit Baptismal Site by the River Jordan, I recorded a video of some people getting baptise, see it below!

 

 

Tiberias, day 2 and 3

During all those days of the journey, I was sharing the hotel room with my very good friend Simon (Doctor Simon, he got a PhD), and me being an early bird I always got up earlier than him, and while I was getting ready for the day, etc, he was still in bed, lazy, lazy until the very last minute when he just had to get up for breakfast.

 

 

Cesarea de Filipo, Marcos C16, v13. This is where Jesus shown himself to his discipuls as the Son of God

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Finger of God and its Gospels

The Finger of God, as you probably have already guessed, is nothing but the extension of God: Jesus the Christ, JC sometimes I call him, but always with love

La antigua alianza con Abraham, Moises y demas, se habia hecho con sangre de animales, a traves de sacrificios de pichones y palomas, pero en esta nueva aliznaza, en ese Nuevo Testamenteo, la sangre que se derrama es la Cristo, para beneficio de todos, para que podamos ver "La Muerte de un hombre bueno"

I tend to read the Gospels every now and then, particularly San Juan which I found the most interesting and engage on its reading usually during the "Cuaresma", the 40 days before Good Friday. I truly enjoy their reading and recommend to everyone whether they are religions or not. Here are some notes that I'd like to mention of each of the gospels

Y muchos primeros seran los ultimos, y los ultimos los primeros, Mateo, C19 v30

Reading of the holy gospel according to Saint Matthew (Mateo)

This gospel is by far the longest and most comprehensive, used a lot by the church on its readings. The World of dreams and supernatural is very present on this gospel. He puts emphasis on the prophesies (particularly Isaias) that have been fulfilled by the arrival of Jesus, thus giving him authority as the Messiah and the right inheritance of the Pentateuch and other books in the Bible (Vulgata version). The killing of the "Santos Inocentes" is only mentioned on this gospel, again, to fulfill the prediction of an ancient prophecy. Many parabolas in this gospel

It is convinient, he said on Marcos C8,v31 y C9,v30, y c10 v33-34 that the Word we rejected by the Elderdy (the Wise), be destroyed and then re-ignite again at the 3rd day. The same thing is said on Saint Luke C9 v22

"Tu fe te ha sanado, vete en paz". Lucas C7,v59, C8, v48

God speaks in dreams to Joseph in a few occasions, to tell him not to reject his wife (C1, v20) and to advise him to leave Israel (C2, v13) and then later on come back to Egypt after Herodes' death (C2, v22). The Wise Man (Reyes Magos) are also warn in dreams by God (C2, v13) not to come back to Herodes and tell him where to find Christ.

the Kings and to Joseph in C2, v12-13

 

Reading of the holy gospel according to Saint Mark (Marcos)

This gospel starts right after the baptism of Jesus by Juan the Baptist, and at the beginning shows a Jesus that is upset with the Fariseos and Saduceos for they follow the Law to the word and keep the Sabbath at all costs

I love from Saint Mark C1, v40: "if you want, you can clean me", also in C2 v17: "I have not come to call the just, but the sinners"

  • C4, v22 "Porque nada hay escondido que no venga a manifestarse;l y nada hay oculto que no venga a ser publico"
  • C7, v15 "Nada de lo que hay fuera del hombre y entre en el puede mancharle, sino al contrario, las cosas que salen del hombre son las que manchas al hombre". No importa lo que veas o escuches, es como tu reaccionas a ello lo importante. De dentro, del corazon, es de donde sale tanto los malos pensamientos como lo bueno
  • C7, v33-35; "Y apartadnole Jesus de la gente metio los dedos en sus oidos, y escupiendo toco su lengua con la saliva, y mirando al cielo dio un suspiro y dijo> Epheta, que quiere decir: Abrete. Y en el mismo instante se abrieron sus oidos, y se desato el impedimento de su lengua, y hablaba claramente"
  • C9, v43,45 y 47; donde el gusano nunca muere y el fuego nunca se apaga. Eso es, los remordimientos de la conciencia que Jesus repite 3 veces en un mismo lugar, avisandonons
  • C10,v21: Y mirandole Jesus le amo, y le dijo: una cosa te falta, anda y vende todo lo que tienes y dalo a los pobres, y tendras un tesoro en el cielo, y ven y sigueme # angain, Jesus enpahsis the extreme poberty and genenoristy above all things
  • C10, v51-52: Y hablando Jesus le dijo: que quieres que haga contigo? y el ciego le dijo: Maestro, que yo tenga vista. Y Jesus le dijo: anda que tu fe te ha salvado. Y al instante tuvo vista, y le seguia en su camino.
  • C12,v44: porque todos echaron de lo que les sobraba, mas esta de su indigencia misma, echo todo lo que tenia para vivir #San Lucas C21,v4
  • C15,v23: Y le daban a bener vino mezclado con mirra, pero no lo tomo #He decided to feel the pain to its most, how many hours had he been without drinking anything? He died at around 3pm (the Nona hour), so it was probably 10 or 11am (the sexta hour) when he was nailed to the cross, because Luke 23,v44 mentions that from 12pm to 3pm there was darkness, that translate to between 4 to 5 hours of suffering on the cross....
  • C15,v37: Y dando Jesus un gran grito, expiro
  • C16,v3: Y se preguntaban una a otra, quien nos quitara la piedra de la entrada del sepulcro?

 

 

 

Reading of the holy gospel according to Saint Luke (Lucas)

This gospel is the only one that mentions the birth of Juan the Baptist, and how the angel Gabriel shows up to his father Zacarias to tell him that he's gonna be a daddy. It is the only place too, where an angel appears to the shepherds asking them to adore baby Jesus that has just been born. Also Simeon, the elderly man who was told by the Holy Spirit that he'll not died without seeing the Messiah, is only mentioned by Saint Luke. When Jesus is 12 years old he left his parents and go to the Temple to starts his mission, but then he realised he has a family to look after, so he'll work and postpone his mission until he's 33 years old (pretty much a very mature man by the 1st century standards) and all family matter has been sorted

Reading of the holy gospel according to John (Juan)

Very phylosophical gospel, where he speaks out his mind to his discipulos
