Onward to Kumran – best known in the present day for being where the Dead Sea Scrolls were found. However, across the Dead Sea from Kumran is Mt. Nebo. The same Nebo where Moses looked out and saw the promised land. My question to our group: “This is the promised land?” Maybe it was green and lush back in the day. Silliness at Kumran #1: There is a welcome video (with bad acting) at the welcome center. Peter has seen it so many times that he can hum the intro music. Then, to our amusement (maybe not so much for the other group in the theater) he stands up and gives the first line of the video. Silliness at Kumran #2: John and Brian debate in the style of the Pharisees during the time of Jesus a specific point of the law. The question? If a hen lays an egg on the Sabbath, is it ok to eat it? John played the liberal and Brian played conservative. They acted it out to the hilt. Hilarious.
