pedro the rooster

This is Pedro, the rooster residing in the antiquities center in LaGrange, GA. Who knew? This was an eye-opening experience. This place, as random as it seems to be located in western Georgia, is a great resource for understanding more about Jewish culture and the context in which Jesus lived. From examples of housing, shepherding, family burial traditions, meals, food, culture -- it was well worth the hour we spent there. Not to mention, Josh stepped in Pedro's poop. Good thing there was a well in the middle of the courtyard. Want to learn more? Check it out.
