Bobolice Castle, Bobolice (or Bublitz), Poland... www.castlesandmanorhouses.com ... This Polish Gothic castle in Bublitz was built by King Casimir III the Great in the middle of the 14th century. It was accessible through a drawbridge over the dry moat. The entire construction was surrounded by walls with battlements, made of local white limestone. Reconstruction works are underway to restore the entrance gate and the curtain wall around the grounds.
Closer Up: The table on which Jesus ate with his disciples after rising from the dead. It is located at Jesus Table (Mensa Christi) Church in Nazareth, Israel. "Afterward he was revealed to the eleven themselves as they sat at the table, and he rebuked them for their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they didn't believe those who had seen him after he had risen." Mark 16:14
Mount of Olives - After the Last Supper, Jesus led his disciples to the Garden of Gethsemane and asked them to keep watch while he prayed. On the lower slopes of the Mount of Olives there stands to this day a stately grove of eight ancient olive trees. These trees and their fruit have given this site it’s name, Gethsemane: gat-shamna is “olive press” in Aramaic.
