White magic beneath a blue sky . . . for Sky Watch Friday.
Believe it or not, the first-of-its-kind exhibition "Angels & Demons" is about Jewish magic.
The Bible prohibited Jews from dabbling in black magic, but white magic (what I would call superstitions) was not so bad.
But we did have fun outside the museum photographing a visiting Franciscan monk!
Fr. Eduardo, if you see this post, please leave a comment so I can find your blog on Blogger.
Someday soon I will have to take a whole day, alone, and slowly go through the Bible Lands Museum Jerusalem.
Opened in 1992, it bills itself as "the only museum in the world dedicated to the history of the Bible and the Ancient Near East."
This Ministry of Tourism press release shows some fascinating examples of the objects that many believed, and some still believe, to be magical.
