I'm still seeing a large number of great pictures taken around Israel with regards to the snow. In particular, one picture this morning caught my eye. At the Israel Museum in Jerusalem, there is a rather large model of the city of Jerusalem during the Second Temple period. You can walk around it and stare at it for hours remembering the stories that you have read in the Bible. On their Facebook page this morning, they posted the following picture of the model in the snow: The model of Jerusalem at the Israel Museum.  Photo courtesy of the Israel Museum.

You can compare that picture to one that I took back when I visited back in September:

With all of these pictures of snow in Jerusalem this week, I was reminded by a good friend who lives in Washington State of a passage from the period of the King David:

Benaiah was the son of Jehoiada, the son of a valiant man from Kabzeel, who had done many deeds. He had killed two lion-like heroes of Moab. He also had gone down and killed a lion in the midst of a pit on a snowy day. - 1 Chronicles 11:22
