Musing history.

Explored the Israel Museum and Bible Lands Museum today; free entry thanks to Bank Hapoalim. (Thank you Bank Hapoalim. That doesn’t excuse you from pinching money from me for no reason every once in awhile. Happy holiday.)

It’s amazing how different the Bible can seem through a historical magnifying glass. When you start to filter politics, science, economics, psychology, and more into the Bible and post-Bible histories, things can either look dim or hopeful. But wither way, it’s definitely more interesting. It was fun to let me imagination roam around that all day.

Also, it was pretty cool to see and think about all this on Pessach. Not even so cliche anymore.
