BEGIN Absalom's Pillar | Corina's Corner

Absalom's Pillar

All last night and a good amount of my time today has been dedicated to finishing my Islam midterm. It is a take home exam with ten questions, 3 being essays. Overall not too bad, but I had put off doing some of it. It was supposed to be due at 4, in class. However my teacher's permit (he lives in Bethlehem) to cross the border to come and teach us is expired. He was unable to make it to class today, so it was canceled. Bummer!

So a bunch of my time suddenly freed up! I went with Leslie and Ryan to see Absalom's Pillar and Zechariah's Tomb.

This is Absalom's Pillar.

2 Samuel 18:18 "Now Absalom in his lifetime had taken and reared up for himself a pillar, which is in the king's dale: for he said, I have no son to keep my name in remembrance: and he called the pillar after his own name: and it is called unto this day, Absalom’s place."
