The Auburn University men’s basketball team paid a visit to Israel this summer, walking in the footsteps of Jesus, baptized in the Jordan River, and walking the path from Gethsamane to the cross.
Dylan Cardwell the Junior center shared extensively about the experience on his blog.
“First, we went to see the Mount of Olives, which had the most amazing view,” the 6’11” center wrote on his blog. “From there, we walked down the mountain and visited the beautiful Garden of Gethsemane, which has been preserved since the days Jesus walked the Earth. We even walked along the Via Dolorosa, which is the historic path Jesus walked before His crucifixion.
“My personal favorite was visiting the Church of the Holy Sepulchre where Jesus was buried. It was an amazing sight to see. … The next day, we traveled to Bethlehem where Jesus was born. It was another significant scene. Just to be able to stand where Jesus once stood was a crazy experience.”
