  • 01:03 Shalom and welcome to our program. I'm Myles Weiss.
  • 01:05 And I'm Katharine Weiss.
  • 01:06 And we want to welcome you to our series on the gates,
  • 01:09 Jerusalem; Ancient Gates Future Glory
  • 01:12 It is such a joy to take our viewers around the City of our God.
  • 01:17 Yes, we've been walking around the City together
  • 01:19 and looking into the history, the current events and the future,
  • 01:22 the prophetic future that the Gates speak of.
  • 01:25 We started with the Dung Gate which is in the southern end of the Old City.
  • 01:28 We went around to the Zion Gate,
  • 01:30 to the Jaffa Gate which is the western most gate
  • 01:33 and then to the New Gate,
  • 01:35 to the Damascus Gate,
  • 01:37 on to Herod's Gate,
  • 01:39 last week the Lion's Gate.
  • 01:41 And today we finish up with the Golden Gate also called the Eastern Gate, Messiah's Gate.
  • 01:46 It's really got a lot of prophetic meaning in it.
  • 01:49 So I'm looking forward to that as well.
  • 01:50 Well it's got one of the oldest gates that are left standing
  • 01:53 because it was blocked up by the Byzantine.
  • 01:56 Of course they built on top of the gate that was underneath it.
  • 01:59 But you can see it from the Mount of Olives.
  • 02:02 And it's what Jesus actually came through on His way
  • 02:05 to bring us His salvation
  • 02:07 the sacrifice that He laid down His life for.
  • 02:10 It has such a wonderful meaning for us Myles
  • 02:12 because we've been praying from Golden Gate to Golden Gate.
  • 02:15 Right...right
  • 02:17 We live in the San Francisco Bay area in the Napa Valley area.
  • 02:20 But we've been praying and standing in California
  • 02:23 saying that God's revelation will come from that area
  • 02:26 from the San Francisco Bay area all the way back to His Golden Gate.
  • 02:30 Right, some people think that we are the farthest possible in many ways
  • 02:34 from the Golden Gate, and the Messiah.
  • 02:36 And so we've been praying that the knowledge of the LORD
  • 02:39 would cover the earth as the waters cover the sea
  • 02:41 as the prophets have said it would.
  • 02:43 Let's go to our interview with Shimon Gibson.
  • 02:45 He's going to be speaking about Jerusalem.
  • 02:48 He wrote a great book about the last days of Jesus
  • 02:51 the archeological evidence.
  • 02:53 So let's go to Shimon Gibson now in Jerusalem.
  • 02:58 The Golden Gate is situated on the east side of the Temple Mount.
  • 03:03 This is known in Arabic as the "al-Haram al-Shariff", the "Splendid Enclosure"
  • 03:08 And it has some amazing Muslim buildings there today;
  • 03:12 the Dome of the Rock and the Al Aqsa Mosque.
  • 03:15 Both which happened in antiquity which go back to early Islamic times.
  • 03:20 But this was the original Temple Mount.
  • 03:22 This is where the Jewish Temple was situated.
  • 03:25 And this is the area that Jesus came to when He arrived in Jerusalem.
  • 03:31 The first place He went to according to the Gospels
  • 03:34 is to the Temple area.
  • 03:36 And this was a Gate which is now blocked.
  • 03:39 It dates back to the Byzantine period.
  • 03:42 But it supplanted an earlier Gate which we know of from the different sources
  • 03:48 including a later Rabbinical sources which was known as the Shushan Gate.
  • 03:53 And it was situated exactly on the east side of the Temple.
  • 03:59 Indeed when the sun came up the rays of the sun would then be projected through this gate
  • 04:05 and then directly onto the facade or the front of the Jewish Temple itself.
  • 04:11 Archeological excavations have not found the Shushan Gate.
  • 04:15 There's some arch which was found beneath the Golden Gate.
  • 04:19 It might be an original gate.
  • 04:21 But we would need to excavate further there.
  • 04:24 Now I'm really interested in all the subterranean areas beneath the Temple Mount.
  • 04:29 Indeed, I wrote a book with a colleague of mine, David Jacobson
  • 04:33 on all of the cisterns and underground conduits and chambers
  • 04:38 beneath the Temple Mount
  • 04:39 some of which are connected to the Golden Gate.
  • 04:44 (Myles speaking) Katherine and I walked to the summit of the Temple Mount
  • 04:47 to see the magnificent Golden Gate for ourselves.
  • 04:50 If only these stones could speak
  • 04:52 what a triumphant choir they'd make
  • 04:54 beckoning the coming of the King.
  • 04:59 We are here on the eastern side of the Temple Mount
  • 05:02 the famous and oldest gate the Eastern Gate,
  • 05:05 the Golden Gate,
  • 05:06 the Mercy Gate.
  • 05:07 It has many names.
  • 05:08 And this is the 8th gate isn't it?
  • 05:10 The 8th gate, the gate that I was talking about
  • 05:12 that's shut up until the King of Glory comes.
  • 05:15 He's going to come on the Mount of Olives.
  • 05:17 He's going to touch down His literal soles of His feet.
  • 05:20 The earth is going to quake and split open.
  • 05:22 Water is going to gush out
  • 05:24 and the throne is going to appear.
  • 05:26 Yes, He's going to set Himself here
  • 05:27 come through this Eastern Gate.
  • 05:29 Just as He did the first time
  • 05:30 He's going to come through this again.
  • 05:32 You'll notice that this gate is closed.
  • 05:34 And we're going to talk to you about that in a moment.
  • 05:37 We're here coming to you from the Golden Gate.
  • 05:39 It's especially important to us from the San Francisco Bay area
  • 05:42 where we've been praying Golden Gate to Golden Gate.
  • 05:45 And we have a tee shirt that says,
  • 05:46 "Golden Gate to Golden Gate opening soon"
  • 05:49 Because we know the day is approaching when the LORD is coming.
  • 05:52 Not only does it have one name,
  • 05:54 It has several names.
  • 05:55 It's known as the Mercy Gate,
  • 05:56 the Eternal Gate,
  • 05:57 the Beautiful Gate.
  • 05:58 This has so much significance
  • 06:00 because we will see the fulfillment of this Gate
  • 06:02 literally open up... the Eastern Gate.
  • 06:05 For now we're standing in front of a Muslim graveyard.
  • 06:08 We're on the Muslim area.
  • 06:10 This is a very significant place of spiritual warfare.
  • 06:13 It's a place where contention is going forth in the heavenlies
  • 06:17 But the reality is there is one King of Kings who will open the Golden Gate.
  • 06:31 We hope you're enjoying our series
  • 06:33 Jerusalem; Ancient Gates Future Glory
  • 06:37 as we present the historical and spiritual significance
  • 06:40 of each gate surrounding the Old City of Jerusalem.

  • 07:29 Please contact us for more information.
  • 07:33 We're coming to you from the Golden Gate
  • 07:36 because of the relationship that Zola Levitt Ministries has with the surrounding neighbors here.
  • 07:40 We have Muslim friends,
  • 07:42 we have friends that are able to get us into this place.
  • 07:44 We're standing in an Arab graveyard
  • 07:46 on the legal place to stand.
  • 07:48 We're near the Mount of Olives where Yeshua will touch down.
  • 07:51 And we're at the Golden Gate that He will come through
  • 07:53 and establish His throne according to many scriptures
  • 07:56 including Ezekiel 44
  • 07:59 which says that the Prince will rule from the Temple Mount.
  • 08:02 You know God says in Psalms 24:7
  • 08:06 Lift up your heads, O ye gates;
  • 08:08 and lift up, ye everlasting doors;
  • 08:10 and the King of glory shall come in.
  • 08:13 God is calling us as believers both Jews and Christians alike
  • 08:19 to lift up our heads and see the redemption that God has only in Himself;
  • 08:23 will He bring peace to this area.
  • 08:25 He calls this place "the joy of the whole earth" in the Psalms.
  • 08:29 Right now we don't see that.
  • 08:31 We see conflicts coming
  • 08:33 and conflicts of kingdoms in this region.
  • 08:36 But God Himself will establish what He said.
  • 08:39 And we agree with Ezekiel Myles.
  • 08:42 That He says He will literally touch down
  • 08:45 and the soles of His feet, the literal Yeshua Himself
  • 08:48 will touch down and solve all these issues.
  • 08:51 You know the Hebrew says,
  • 08:52 (Speaking Hebrew)
  • 08:54 The King of Glory shall come in.
  • 08:57 And we are all looking forward to that time.
  • 08:59 You know, when you see the double gates behind me
  • 09:01 you recognize that it's called in Hebrew the Sha'ar HaRachamim, the Gate of Mercy.
  • 09:07 But also the other gate is Sha'ar Hateshuvah, the Gate of Repentance.
  • 09:12 And historically there's been both of those senses
  • 09:15 that this is a place of mercy and a place of repentance.
  • 09:18 And doesn't it remind you of the scriptures in James
  • 09:21 where James says that mercy triumphs over judgment
  • 09:24 that both are there but that mercy triumphs because of the goodness of Yeshua at the cross.
  • 09:29 And we're here looking into the future.
  • 09:32 We're looking at the past.
  • 09:33 You know that in 1969 the American archaeologist
  • 09:37 James Fleming was walking around this area.
  • 09:39 He fell through the ground and discovered below another gate.
  • 09:44 He was shocked because it looked like the gate
  • 09:47 that might go all the way back to the time of Solomon.
  • 09:50 In fact it mirrored the double pillars that are here.
  • 09:53 And he wondered, is this the gate that goes back to the time of Solomon?
  • 09:57 And before he could do anything about it
  • 10:00 the Muslim authorities came and they poured concrete over it.
  • 10:03 We never found out what's at that lower gate.
  • 10:06 But the speculation is that this is the place where the lower >>gate goes all the way through.
  • 10:11 And it's here going back to the time when the two pillars stood here,
  • 10:15 Jachin and Boaz...
  • 10:17 God establishes and God strengthens.
  • 10:20 And we're here in that place looking to the future.
  • 10:22 When the King of Glory will set up His kingdom here in a literal place here in Jerusalem
  • 10:28 And rule the earth for 1,000 years from this very place.
  • 10:32 Look up, your redemption draws nigh.

  • 11:45 It's articles that we've written for
  • 11:49 and a lot of other people that we use to write.
  • 11:53 Well we do the sifting for folks
  • 11:55 because there's so much
  • 11:56 information and disinformation in the world right now
  • 11:59 that we're able to kind of go through the information that's available,

  • 12:13 So it's a really great newsletter.
  • 12:16 It's more than just a newsletter
  • 12:17 it's really a magazine.
  • 12:18 You know the gates are...
  • 12:20 They speak about a time that's coming.
  • 12:22 Especially the Eastern Gate speaks about a time of redemption.
  • 12:25 It's pointing towards redemption.
  • 12:27 And one of the most amazing signs in the world right now
  • 12:30 is this coming together almost like a delta point, like a triangle point, an arrow point
  • 12:36 of Jews and Christians working together.
  • 12:39 It was phenomenal to us to see that as we've been praying for this to happen
  • 12:43 that Amos 9:15 is coming alive in our day.
  • 12:46 It says that, I will plant them on their land.
  • 12:49 They will never again be plucked up out of the land that I have given to them.
  • 12:53 The Lord your God has said it.
  • 12:55 It also says, the mountains will drip with sweet wine
  • 12:57 and all the hills will melt over it.
  • 13:00 I will restore the captivity of my people.
  • 13:03 And if you had told me a number of years ago
  • 13:05 that Orthodox Jewish grape growing folks
  • 13:08 up on the Mountains of Samaria the Heartland of Israel
  • 13:11 would be joined by Christians
  • 13:13 who are helping them to plant, to prune, to harvest the grapes
  • 13:17 and create this beautiful wine,
  • 13:20 I would have said it's impossible.
  • 13:22 But we saw it.
  • 13:24 In fact, right now we're going to go to my interview with Tommy Waller.
  • 13:27 He's a Christian pastor who is working with the Orthodox Jewish people in Samaria
  • 13:32 on the Mount of Blessing, of course,
  • 13:35 with a ministry called HaYovel or the Jubilee.
  • 13:38 And together they are looking for Messiah.
  • 13:41 Whose identity we know.
  • 13:43 Whose identity will be revealed soon.
  • 13:45 But they're working together in a way that only God Himself could make happen.
  • 13:49 Let's go to Tommy
  • 13:52 We're coming here bringing volunteers here to experience the Land
  • 13:57 to get our hands in the soil just like Abraham,
  • 14:00 just like Isaac and Jacob.
  • 14:02 And even like Yeshua did
  • 14:04 when His disciples were here on this mountain he spoke to the woman at the well
  • 14:08 and that whole story... this was the theatre for that.
  • 14:13 So we are experiencing something
  • 14:15 but we also are also experiencing
  • 14:18 the understanding of prophecy in a different way.
  • 14:24 One is we understood the prophecy of desolation from this place
  • 14:28 because you can look around and see that many of the hills here
  • 14:31 are rocky and you look at the soil here, it's very rocky soil.
  • 14:37 Not many people would come here and say,
  • 14:39 WOW, this looks like great farm land.
  • 14:42 And yet the phenomena is when the Jewish people came back to the Land
  • 14:48 and they planted just like the prophet said, just like the scripture says,
  • 14:51 when they planted themselves back in the Land
  • 14:54 they saw this Land from a Biblical mandate;
  • 14:58 a mandate to restore the Land.
  • 15:01 So they began bulldozing these rocks around to plant vines.
  • 15:09 And for the first time in 2,000 years there's vineyards back in the Land of Israel
  • 15:14 What an exciting thing.
  • 15:17 It reminds me of course of Amos chapter 9
  • 15:20 where we read about the Jews being planted in the Land never to be taken out again.
  • 15:24 And you're here with your family, with volunteers
  • 15:27 you come to actually help that prophecy be fulfilled.
  • 15:31 It goes on to say in Amos 9;
  • 15:33 it's perfect scripture
  • 15:35 because Amos 9 says there'll be sweet wine dripping from the mountains of Israel.
  • 15:38 The same...just the next verse down.
  • 15:41 And so, what a blessing.
  • 15:45 What an opportunity for us to see the wine come back to the mountains of Israel.
  • 15:51 And we...this is a preparation time.
  • 15:56 This is the preparation time for not just the restoration of the Land.
  • 16:03 But why is the Land being restored?
  • 16:05 Why is there this preparation?
  • 16:07 Why is there this Elijah, John the Baptist preparation thing happening right now?
  • 16:13 And it's fully to see the One who is coming
  • 16:17 that's going to sit on the throne in Jerusalem.
  • 16:20 And we're excited about that.
  • 16:21 And so this... people say well why vineyards?
  • 16:27 Why is that?
  • 16:29 But Isaiah 25 talks about the Feast that's coming back to this Land.
  • 16:37 The Feast, the Festival where the aged wine and the aged beef
  • 16:42 are going to be at the Festival when this restoration happens.
  • 16:49 But also Yeshua says this,
  • 16:52 that I will not drink this cup from my Father's vineyard until we drink it again in the Kingdom
  • 17:01 WOW
  • 17:02 And that's not going to be...
  • 17:03 I'm sorry Myles it's not going to be California wine.
  • 17:05 And it's going to be the wines from these hills.
  • 17:11 And what an exiting thing to think that we could be the ones actually...
  • 17:17 I could be the one...
  • 17:19 I'm actually harvesting the cluster that goes into the glass.
  • 17:22 And that's an amazing thing... an amazing thing.
  • 17:26 What an opportunity we have to prepare for the big party that's about to come.
  • 17:33 (Myles Speaking) We had a chance to join some of the volunteers
  • 17:36 in picking the lush fruit of the vine.
  • 17:38 And oh how sweet it was.
  • 17:40 I talked to Tommy's son who also feels called of God in this prophetic purpose.
  • 17:45 Zac you're here with your Dad and your ten siblings and your children.
  • 17:50 What's it like to be raising children in the center of Israel in the Heartland in Samaria?
  • 17:55 It's incredible.
  • 17:57 Would have never thought in my wildest dreams five or ten years ago that I would be here
  • 18:01 standing in the Land of Israel with my wife and children
  • 18:04 and my whole family... all my brothers and sisters,
  • 18:06 Mom and Daddy, my grandmother is here for this harvest.
  • 18:09 It's really an incredible thing.
  • 18:11 And you are seeing prophesy fulfilled.
  • 18:13 You are walking in the fulfillment of Tanakh prophesies
  • 18:16 New Testament prophesies
  • 18:18 where this relationship between the Gentile believers and the Jews of the Land is prospering.
  • 18:25 Tell us about your process with that.
  • 18:27 It's definitely been a learning experience like being here...
  • 18:31 It's taken 9 years to get us where we are today for sure.
  • 18:36 There's a lot we didn't know coming into it.
  • 18:39 We were very ignorant on the Jewish people and their relationship to Christianity
  • 18:44 and the whole thing.
  • 18:45 And so it's definitely been a learning experience
  • 18:48 being here and interacting with the Jewish people.
  • 18:49 And it's been very good.
  • 18:51 And they say for 2,000 years the Jewish and Christian people
  • 18:56 were talking about each other
  • 18:57 and not communicating with each other.
  • 18:59 Right
  • 19:00 And so now for once we are actually communicating with each other
  • 19:02 and working together
  • 19:04 and doing things together.
  • 19:06 And I think that's a big thing.
  • 19:07 It's a huge thing.
  • 19:09 And when I think about the damage that's been done
  • 19:13 in the Name of Christ over the centuries
  • 19:15 you guys are really part of the healing.
  • 19:17 And personally I want to thank you for that.
  • 19:19 But also, do you recognize that?
  • 19:21 That you're healing something?
  • 19:23 I think so for sure.
  • 19:25 I think we've seen a lot of healing.
  • 19:27 I mean these guys are Orthodox Jewish people
  • 19:30 that are a very, very strong in what they believe.
  • 19:33 And they're the ones who hold most of that wound.
  • 19:36 And so today after 9 years of working through things
  • 19:41 and figuring out where we're at and where they're at
  • 19:43 and we're here working with them
  • 19:45 and talking with them.
  • 19:47 So, yeah, I see us very healing.
  • 19:49 Like they're seeing that we're not just coming and talking.
  • 19:52 We're actually coming in and doing something.
  • 19:54 We're actually coming in to serve
  • 19:56 and not to try to push whatever we have on them in any way.
  • 20:00 And I think that speaks a lot.
  • 20:02 And I think they're seeing that.
  • 20:03 To be out here in the vineyards working
  • 20:04 a lot of times the people will say hey you guys make us jealous
  • 20:07 You're actually really excited about these prophecies and different things.
  • 20:12 And that makes me really...
  • 20:14 I guess for them they live here you know?
  • 20:16 They experience the hardships and all these things.
  • 20:18 And so for them to see us get excited it kinda renews that excitement in them you know?
  • 20:22 That WOW this is where we're at in history, in time.
  • 20:25 It's exciting.
  • 20:26 I think it's definitely a healing that's going on.
  • 20:28 And not only so, I think that you are living the words from the Holy Spirit through Paul
  • 20:33 about provoking my people to jealousy.
  • 20:36 You are, the way that you live with your hands in the dirt
  • 20:39 is provoking the Jewish people to be more Godly, to look more in the Book.
  • 20:43 We are definitely...
  • 20:45 We are not here to try to provoke them by any means
  • 20:49 But we're definitely here.
  • 20:52 And we definitely are excited.
  • 20:54 And I think that when they see us get excited about their scriptures and their Bible,
  • 20:59 like when they see us believing in the prophesies they say,
  • 21:03 Hey, those prophesies were given to us.
  • 21:05 We should be just as excited as they are.
  • 21:07 Yeah
  • 21:08 And so it's not anything like we're trying to convince them of anything.
  • 21:12 We're just doing what we feel like God's called us to do.
  • 21:14 And they're seeing that.
  • 21:16 And when we all do our part then everybody can get excited.
  • 21:21 (Myles speaking) So here in the Heartland of Israel
  • 21:23 in Samaria on Mount Gerizim
  • 21:26 new vines have been planted
  • 21:27 that will grow and become a testimony of God's remarkable handiwork.
  • 21:31 There's a restoration taking place in the Land.
  • 21:35 Christians and Jews in unity
  • 21:38 understanding the prophetic implications
  • 21:40 of what's taking place on this Mount of Blessing.
  • 21:44 Nir Lavi is the vineyard owner.
  • 21:47 When Christians from all around the world see HaYovel and what it does,
  • 21:53 and these are good embassies outside of Samaria, outside of Judah going around the world
  • 22:00 and saying HaShem is great,
  • 22:03 the Jewish people are coming back to their Homeland after 2,000 years of exile
  • 22:07 planting vines, making wine.
  • 22:09 And in this process together,
  • 22:12 we are doing it with honorable Christian people that have faith in HaShem, in the LORD.
  • 22:21 And this is actual prophesies being held, being known
  • 22:26 and actually taking place here on Har Bracha.

  • 23:51 Thank you Marty for that wonderful music that you contribute to this ministry.
  • 23:55 And we are so blessed to hear and share in his life and the music that he writes.
  • 24:01 But we can't do it without your gifts of funds because all of these things work together.
  • 24:06 You know as one man plants another man sows
  • 24:09 but God brings the increase.
  • 24:11 So we thank you for sowing into this ministry,
  • 24:14 for giving the gifts so we can bring the increase that God is bringing in this earth
  • 24:19 and the revelation that He is talking to us about Israel and the end times.
  • 24:23 You know it talks about in Isaiah 62:10-11
  • 24:26 Go through, go through the gates!
  • 24:28 Prepare the way... my people...
  • 24:31 ...the LORD is proclaiming to the end of the world;
  • 24:34 And He is saying to the daughters of Zion,
  • 24:37 Surely salvation is coming.
  • 24:39 Well we're seeing it.
  • 24:42 Even in that little clip of Tommy Waller
  • 24:44 and what's happening with the Jews and Christians in the mountains of Samaria.
  • 24:47 It really ties into the Eastern Gate
  • 24:49 because we're looking towards that final Gate when God Himself,
  • 24:53 When Meshiach is going to come through that Gate
  • 24:56 and establish the millennial reign from Jerusalem;
  • 24:58 reigning over the whole earth for a thousand years.
  • 25:01 And what we do here is connected to awakening our country,
  • 25:05 awakening Israel, awakening the world to the importance of the time in which we're living.
  • 25:10 Absolutely
  • 25:11 And awakening the daughters of Zion.
  • 25:13 You know they've come to us.
  • 25:14 They've said thank you for your show.
  • 25:16 Thank you for what you're doing.
  • 25:18 We know it's making a difference.
  • 25:19 These are people that aren't yet believers.
  • 25:22 These are Jewish people...
  • 25:23 storekeepers that have come and said
  • 25:26 thank you for what your show is saying to us and to the world.
  • 25:30 And so we want to share that "thank you" to you,
  • 25:33 for you that have given to this ministry.
  • 25:36 We want to say thank you.
  • 25:37 And if you've ever thought about it
  • 25:39 please...would you just send a little something our way?
  • 25:42 And we'll make sure to give the glory to God and let the message continue.
  • 25:47 Yes, the message is what it's about.
  • 25:48 This is about lifting up the King of Glory
  • 25:51 and letting people know that He is what this is all about.
  • 25:54 I'm thinking about Psalm 24:7
  • 25:57 I love this and it really ties up this whole teaching about the Gates of Jerusalem.
  • 26:01 (Speaking Hebrew)
  • 26:05 Lift up your heads, O ye gates!
  • 26:08 And be lifted up, you everlasting doors!
  • 26:11 That the King of Glory might come in.
  • 26:13 And that's what we're looking at.
  • 26:15 Zechariah said Messiah's going to come back on the Mount of Olives.
  • 26:17 And Ezekiel said He's going to come in through the Eastern Gate
  • 26:20 And all those prophesies, those prophets, they saw something;
  • 26:24 God put it in a book and so we get to open it and believe it
  • 26:28 and look forward to the coming of Messiah.
  • 26:30 And how amazing is it that Jewish people are looking for a Messiah,
  • 26:34 the Christians are looking for Jesus,
  • 26:37 and at some point they are both going to find out that...
  • 26:40 He is the One.
  • 26:42 He is the One and Messiah is coming again.
  • 26:45 And so it's our job to continue to awaken people to this reality
  • 26:50 and we get to do it with Him.
  • 26:51 Yes, Christianity through Jewish eyes.
  • 26:53 You know we love bringing you this perspective.
  • 26:55 We know there are other people out there that are doing it
  • 26:58 but we know that we need it more than ever.
  • 27:00 Yes, especially as we see the onslaught
  • 27:03 of anti-Israelism anti-Zionism, anti-Semitism at work in the world.
  • 27:07 We're just going to continue to bring this message until the day approaches.
  • 27:12 So, until we see you again
  • 27:15 we always want to remind you,
  • 27:16 Sha'alu Shalom Yerushalayim
  • 27:18 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem.
