CA Vacation, part 5

Kristan had been driving by a sign that said "Biblical Gardens" for the past 3 years and had waited for me to come so we could explore it together.  We didn't know what to expect.  It was free and supported by donations.  That's an important fact to keep in mind when you look at these pictures.  It was very pretty in the woods, and it was nice that people had supported it by giving memorials.  There were some things (the wood carvings and coordinated verses with the statues it portrayed) that I like more so than others (plastic flowers and white plaster statues that would have looked better from far away).  Over all, though, it was a nice, peaceful place.  It was very thoughtful of Kristan to save this place for us to come to together.

I appreciated this sign about the Word.

Moses and the Ten Commandments

Weddings and Baptisms take place here year round, thanks to the wonderful CA weather.

Jesus riding the donkey into Jerusalem:

Loved this carving of the Last Supper:

And of the Betrayal:

Pilate washing his hands of ("this innocent man") Jesus' blood:

Jesus praying in the Garden 

Carrying His cross

The EMPTY tomb!
