Holy Land Experience - Orlando FL

We visited the Holy Land Experience in Orlando FL.  It was really neat. We both really enjoyed it.

 This is a replica of the Temple Plaza.  It is so bright with Gold in person. Picture doesn't do it justice.

This is a statue of Jesus and a replica of the boat he would have ridden in to cross the sea.

This was a beautiful angel statue. I loved the wings.

They had awesome wax figures of bible scenes.  This is Jesus at the last supper.

Jesus in the Garden being tempted by Satan not to do His Father's will. Aren't we glad he defeated Satan!
If you look to the left of the photo you can see one of the disciples sleeping.

 Here are all three of the disciples sleeping.

This is Jesus being taken up into the clouds . . .

Here I am with one of the actors who portrayed Jesus in the skits and shows of the day.

Here is the garden tomb. You can go inside and see it is empty!

They have adorable things for children also. This is Noah's ark.

This is Jonah in the belly of the whale.   This was so cute.

Jesus walking on the water . . .

Here is a real Roman soldier !  Isn't he scary?  Oh wait it is my husband ! 
Don't think Roman soldier's wore baseball caps HAH

Here he is again . . . child at heart or child like faith . . . Go Gary  . . .

This is a Judean market place.  This area was really beautiful.

We got to see several shows The Women at the Well and a skit about barn yard animals and the little lamb who was going to be sacrificed.  Then Jesus arrived on the scene and was crucified and took the place of the lamb. We also took communion at a replica of the last supper with Jesus.  That was awesome!

If you ever get down to Orlando it is worth a visit ; )
