The part of the retaining wall that would have been closest to the HOLY OF HOLIES is the Western Wall… Hence, it’s religious significance.
The wall was huge… stories high.. and just like most of the city, the color of sand. In the summer all of Israel seemed to be the color of sand! It was made out of huge big blocks of stone tightly stacked on top of one another. It surely was a mighty retaining wall! Our group spent time taking pictures and excitedly chatting about being in the old city… still quite unbelievable!
For tonight all I could do was look.. but tomorrow… that would be the day!
Time got lost in prayer. I’m sure I had been at the wall for quite a while.
