On July 11 I was in the field teaching a group of students from the Jerusalem University College who were studying “Jesus and His Times.” I wanted to take them to Jotapata to help them understand Josephus and the First Jewish Revolt, but it was close to the end of the day and remembering last year’s hour walk into the site, and 100 degree F temperatures, I thought we would just view it from above. Much to my delight I found that a new paved road had been built to the site! So instead of an hour walk in, we just drove to the foot of the mound and began exploring Jotapata.
